FDA Issues Safety Warning for IVC Filters

The FDA has issued a safety warning recommending physicians responsible for the ongoing care of patients with IVC (Inferior Vena Cava) Filters, to remove them as soon as they are no longer needed.  The Filters can cause death due to Filter fracture, Filter migration, Filter embolization and perforation of the Vena Cava.  Fracturing and migration of these devices to vital organs is a danger to your health and time is of the essence.  IVC Filters commonly known as Greenfield Filters, are manufactured by several different medical device corporations.  The Filter is placed in the Vena Cava of patients who are at risk of pulmonary embolism, which is a blood clot that travels from the veins in the legs to the lungs.  If that happens, a pulmonary embolism can have catastrophic consequences.
