Lawsuits have been filed against the manufacturers of the IVC blood clot devices for failute to warn patients and physicians of the increased risks of the filters breaking, and metal fragments moving through the blood, potentially damaging an organ. Additionally, the lawsuits state that the manufacturer C.R. Bard hid the results of its own research finding the filters dangerous, and even forged an employee’s signature on an FDA application in order to get FDA approval.
Five products are most often involved in the lawsuits: The Bard Recovery filter; The Bard G2 filter; The Bard G2 Express filter; The Cook Gunther Tulip filter; and the Cook Celect filter.
