The FDA Has Warned of Safety Risks
IVC filters were designed to prevent life-threatening blood clots by trapping clots in the blood stream and preventing them from reaching the lungs.
Retrievable filters were originally approved by the FDA in 2003, although since 2005, the FDA has received numerous reports of complications associated with IVC filters and released a warning stating that the device should be removed once a patients risk for blood clots subsides.
If you or someone you know experienced complications from IVC filters, contact us at 813-223-2929.
