Bard IVC Filter Recall Lawsuit

Ennis & Ennis is currently representing individuals across the country that have been implanted with a recalled Bard IVC Filter and have experienced injury or loss as a result.

Bard IVC Filter Recall

Inferior Vena Cava (IVC) filters are small devices designed to catch blood clots that may break free from lower parts of the body and travel toward the lungs. They are implanted in patients who are at risk for a pulmonary embolism, when they are unable to take anticoagulants or when they do not respond to medications.

Bard Recovery Inferior Vena Cava filters, also known as Bard IVC filters as well as Bard G2 IVC filters, have been recalled due to risks that can cause serious injury or death to patients who have been implanted with a Bard IVC Filter.

Risks associated with the Bard IVC Filters are:

  • The filter may change position
  • Filter or filter particles may end up in the heart causing heart attack
  • Filter or filter particles may end up in the brain causing stroke
  • Shards or particles may break off and puncture internal organs causing serious injury
  • Breakage of filter

Injuries That May Be Caused by Defective Bard IVC Filters Include:

  • Heart or lung perforation
  • Puncturing of the vena cava
  • Heart Attack
  • Stroke
  • Death
  • Injury to organs in body
  • Cardiovascular events

A study conducted by the New England Society for Vascular Surgery stated that there was a 31% fracture rate in IVC filters.

Another study conducted by Dr. Nicholson of York Hospital, showed that 25% of the group had splinters that broke off, most of which migrated to an organ, such as the heart, lungs and the hepatic vein.

In August, 2010, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a warning, stating 921 reports of problems with IVC filters had been made since 2005. The FDA went on to clearly state that the device was meant for temporary use, not permanent placement.

Over 100,000 IVC filters have been used on patients. These devices were not intended to be permanent implants. Manufacturers made the devices retrievable so that doctors could remove the devices once the danger of blood clots and pulmonary embolism passed. However, Bard allegedly petitioned for the device to be approved as a permanent implant. The FDA now recommends the devices be removed as soon as the risk of pulmonary embolism subsides.
