Fair Rate Funding is a leader in IVC Filter Lawsuit Funding for IVC Filter lawsuits.
An IVC Filter is a medical device which is placed in the inferior vena cava, the major vein connecting the legs to the heart. Its purpose is to capture emboli before they reach the pulmonary arteries. IVC Filters are placed via the groin or neck into the abdomen just below the junction of the inferior vena cava vein and renal vein. These filters are removable and are often placed during an acute illness or prior to surgery. IVC Filters are normally used in patients with Deep Vein Thrombosis or Pulmonary Embolism who cannot be anticoagulated because of a surgical procedure.
It is estimated that over 250,000 IVC Filters have been implanted over the years.
Unfortunately, many removable IVC Filters are not removed from patients, and these medical devices can pose a risk of breaking, penetrating the vein wall or moving up the vein. In rare cases, IVC Filters have migrated to heart chambers.
In 2010, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced a safety alert regarding retrievable IVC filters. The FDA received 921 reports of adverse events from 2005-10 according to some sources. Reported complications involved:
- Device migration
- Filter perforation
- Filter fracture
- Detached device components (called device embolization)
Because of these complications, many patients sought recourse in the court system by filing lawsuits. The plaintiffs allege the filters migrated and broke apart causing organ damage and other complications. Most of these cases are pending in MDLs (Multi-District-Litigation) in federal courts. And most involve IVC Filters manufactured by C.R. Bard and Cook Medical.
