IVC Filter Injury
IVC FILTERS CAN MIGRATE, FRACTURE AND BREAK
IVC filter is a small device that is inserted in the inferior vena cava, its purpose is to anchor and catch blood clots, while not restricting blood flow through the filter. After implementation some of these devices have been known to migrate, embed and even break in some instances. This can make retrieval of the device, difficult, or even impossible depending on the risk involved. In these cases, it is critical to contact an experienced your physician. Your physician will be able to diagnose whether or not your IVC filter has suffered degradation.
WHAT ARE THE DANGERS OF IVC FILTER FAILURE?
IVC filter complications arise when the device migrates, these can result in the device penetrating the vena cava, the device migrating to the heart, failing to catch and stop blood clots. The device can also fracture and/or break. This can result in the most serious injury and retrieval of the device can be very risky to the patient’s health.
