IVC FILTER Dangers AND RIsks
Retrievable IVC Filters are intended to be placed for a limited time to provide temporary protection from blood clots. However, many are implanted in emergency situations where the surgeons may not see the patient again. This increases the likelihood that the IVC Filter will be left in too long or permanently. In fact, a report published in 2015 found that the prolonged presence of IVC filters was "associated with retrieval failure rates as high as 43%." Several studies have found that the prolonged presence of certain retrievable IVC Filters have been linked to serious side effects, even fatal complications including...
• Device Erosion
• Filter Migration
• Filter Fracture
• Filter Perforation
• Perforation Of Various Organs Such As The Inferior Vena Cava, Heart And Lungs
• An Increased Risk Of Blood Clots Clogging The Filter, Slowing Blood Flow To The Lungs
• Compromised Respiration
• Inability To Retrieve The IVC Filter
• Tilting Of The IVC Filter
An estimated 49,000 IVC Filters have been implanted annually in the United State since 2005 translating to approximately 343,000 people having IVC Filter devices inside their bodies.
