IVC Filters are medical devices implanted into the Inferior Vena Cava—a vein which returns blood from the lower body to the heart. Surgeons use these devices in patients at risk of suffering sudden arterial blockage or a Pulmonary Embolism. An IVC Filter catches fragments of clots which form in the legs or pelvis before they reach the heart or lungs where they can cause severe complications.

About IVC Filters

IVC Filters are implanted into patients with an existing history or high risk of developing blood clots in the legs or pelvis. This includes patients who are:

  • Diagnosed with Deep Vein Thrombosis
  • Immobile or Highly Sedentary
  • Victims of Recent Trauma
  • Recovering from Surgery
  • Suffering from a Pulmonary Embolism
  • At High Risk of a Pulmonary Embolism

What Are the Risks and Complications?

The risk that an IVC Filter may fail or fracture places these devices under scrutiny. Malfunctions may result in serious injury, a need for corrective surgery, or even death. When a filter fails, the device or clot fragments may migrate to a patient’s heart and lungs resulting in injury or death. Devices can also shift within a patient’s body, eventually reaching areas inaccessible to surgeons.
