Inferior vena cava filters, or IVC filters, have received much attention lately for allegations of dangerous and potentially life threatening complications that may be caused by the device. Among these complications is the serious risk of vena cava perforation.

The inferior vena cava is a large vein the carries blood away from the heart to the lower half of the body. IVC filters are placed in this vein in an attempt to capture blood clots that have formed. Normally, these filters are only implanted in patients who cannot take traditional blood thinning medication. Ideally, the filter can prevent a pulmonary embolism if the patient is at risk for this complication. Unfortunately, however, the IVC filters have been known to migrate from their original implanted location. When this occurs, sharp edges on the device can penetrate and damage surrounding organs. Several reports of vena cava perforation have been reported from people who have received IVC filter implants.

IVC Filter Organ Perforation Lawsuits

Although the inferior vena cava is often the most common area damaged by IVC filter perforation, there are other areas and organs that are susceptible to damage as well. These areas include:

  • Aorta
  • Duodenum
  • Ureter
  • Retroperitoneal
