Shamis & Gentile investigates potential cases for individuals who have had problems related to small medical devices implanted into the inferior vena cava (IVC) to prevent blood clots from traveling to the lungs. There are many brands that are being reviewed for potential recovery against, among the most common being Bard G2 IVC filter, Bard Recovery IVC filter (manufactures of the Eclipse brand IVC filter) and Cook IVC filter (manufacturers of the Celect brand IVC filter and Gunther Tulip filter). These companies failed to adequately warn about the risks of the problems and negligently designed a defective and unreasonably dangerous IVC filter. It is our opinion that the manufactures will ultimately be forced to pay substantial financial compensation to resolve these cases.

IVC Filter Information
IVC Filters are small devices that are inserted into the vein to “catch” blood clots traveling to the lungs. The FDS has been raising concerns about problems with IVC filters since August 2010, when initial communication was issued to alert doctors about risks associated with retrievable filters intended for short-term placement.
Potential severe and life-threatening complications include the following:
- Punctures of Internal Organs, Veins or Arteries,
- Fractures or Broken Filter Components
- Tilting or Migration of the Filter
- Difficulty removing the IVC filter
- Injury to Heart, Lungs, or other Organs
- Wrongful Death
