The IVC filter is a wire device used to stop blood clots from forming in a patient’s inferior vena cava (IVC) in cases where the individual is at a high risk for pulmonary embolism. The spider-like device is implanted in the patient’s vein to “catch” blood clots before they enter the patient’s lungs, heart, or brain. Unfortunately, the IVC device has been known to fall out of place or to break apart, which can lead to pieces of the medical device entering the bloodstream and potentially puncturing a vein wall and causing organ damage and internal bleeding. In addition, the IVC filter may even cause blood clots at the insertion site.
