IVC Filters are small spider-like devices that are implanted in the inferior vena cava—the main vessel moving blood from the lower body to the heart. These devices have been implanted in patients that are at risk of blood clots, but can’t be put on blood thinners. There have been reports of cases where IVC filters manufactured by C.R. Bard and Cook Medical may cause serious injuries, including Bard’s G2 IVC filter, as well as the Bard Recovery Cone® Removal Kit retrievable filter. If you or someone you know had an IVC (inferior vena cava) filter implanted, you may be entitled to compensation.
