Filter fracture is a dangerous risk associated with implantation of an IVC filter. Once the device is inserted into the inferior vena cava, it is possible for the “legs” to break off from the device and cause damage to nearby organs. Filter fracture prevents the device from doing its intended job and also causes major complications. It is believed that fracture of the device occurs due to regular breathing or aortic pulsation, and therefore can occur at any time. When a device breaks, it is not always immediately known. As time goes on, the broken pieces of the device can erode or cause additional damage. When it is discovered that the device has suffered a fracture, patients may need additional surgery and an extended stay at the hospital. Lawsuits against the makers of the device help patients recover compensation for excess medical bills and other damages.
Many patients call our firm each day and ask if they can sue the makers of the IVC filter because they suffered major complications such as filter fracture. In most cases, a lawsuit is possible.
