What Is An IVC- Blood Clot Capture Filter?

An IVC Filter is implanted in seniors who cannot use blood thinners. The blood clot filter ( also known as and IVC Filter or Inferior Vena Cava Filter ) is a surgical implant that captures a blood clot so that it cannot travel to you or your loved one’s brain or lungs. If a blood clot settles in the brain it can cause a stroke. If it ends up in your lungs it can cause a pulmonary embolism. The blood clot filter is very good in theory but, it is not without serious complications.

FDA Tells About The Dangers Of The IVC Filters

The FDA has received reports of adverse events and product problems associated with IVC filters. Types of reports include device migration, filter fracture, embolization (movement of the entire filter or fracture fragments to the heart or lungs), perforation of the IVC, and difficulty removing the device. Some of these events led to adverse clinical outcomes. These types of events may be related to how long the filter has been implanted. Other known long-term risks associated with IVC filters include lower limb deep vein thrombosis and IVC occlusion. For patients with retrievable filters, some complications may be avoided if the filter can be removed once the risk of pulmonary embolism has subsided. The FDA is concerned that retrievable IVC filters, when placed for a short-term risk of pulmonary embolism, are not always removed once the risk subsides.

IBV Filter FDA Recommendations/Actions:

The FDA recommends that implanting physicians and clinicians responsible for the ongoing care of patients with retrievable IVC filters consider removing the filter as soon as protection from pulmonary embolism is no longer needed. The FDA encourages all physicians involved in the treatment and follow-up of patients receiving IVC filters to consider the risks and benefits of filter removal for each patient. A patient should be referred for IVC filter removal when the risk/benefit profile favors removal and the procedure is feasible given the patient’s health status.

IVC Filter Injury Alert

IVC Filters are breaking inside patients, and metal parts are moving through the blood; damaging hearts, lungs and causing internal bleeding. Lawsuits are being Filed For Injury and Wrongful Death.
