WASHINGTON D.C. – On August 9, 2010, after receiving more than 900 reports of problems, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (“FDA”) warned doctors about the dangers of IVC filters such as the Bard Recovery and Bard G2. Inferior vena cava filters (“IVC Filters”) are medical devices that are implanted inside a patients vena cava vein to prevent blood clots from traveling and blocking the pulmonary arteries in the lung. The FDA issued an advisory to physicians that these retrievable filters be removed after the clot burden passed. The FDA stated that IVC filters may fail, leading to parts of the filters migrating through a patients body.
