The Dangers of Bard G2 IVC Filters

Posted on September 27, 2015 1:48 pm under Bard G2 IVC Filters

Bard G2 IVC Filters are medical devices used to prevent pulmonary embolism by blocking the passage of blood clots into the arteries of the lungs. These filters are placed in the inferior vena cava through an invasive procedure, and are recommended for patients who are unable to take anticoagulants to fight blood clots.

However, lawsuits have been filed against its manufacturer, C.R. Bard, over reports that the components of the filters may break off and migrate to other parts of the body, causing a host of different adverse reactions that could be fatal. These include pulmonary embolism and blood vessel and organ perforation. To date, more and more lawsuits are being filed against the company, saying that the company failed to warn the consumers about the device’s inherent risks.
