SPENCER WINS IVC FILTER CASES
LET SPENCER HELP
The attorneys at Tieman, Spencer & Hicks, LLC are investigating lawsuits against the manufacturers of Inferior Vena Cava (IVC) filters. IVC filters have been alleged to be prone to early failure which can cause catastrophic injuries, and even death.
What is an IV Filter?
IVC filters are supposed to prevent blood clots from traveling to a person’s heart and lungs. IVC filters are surgically implanted in the inferior vena cava which is a vein that takes blood from the lower body to the heart. IVC filters are generally used when a person has, or is at risk for developing deep vein thrombosis.
IVC Filter Complications
IVC filter migration occurs when the filter moves from the implant location. Migration can cause the IVC filter to block blood flow which can lead to serious complications and even death.
IVC filter fracture occurs when a part of the filter breaks off. The broken portion of the filter can then migrate leading to serious complication and even death.
IVC filter perforation occurs when a migrating IVC filter, or part of a filter, punctures a blood vessel or internal organ.
SYMPTOMS OF IVC FILTER COMPLICATIONS
- Chest pain
- Rapid heartbeat
- Shortness of breath
- Neck pain
- Abdominal pain
