IVC Filter Lawyer
in Austin, TX
Inferior Vena Cava (IVC) filters can be lifesavers for those at risk for blood clots. However, studies have concluded that certain manufacturers’ filters can slip, fracture, and cause injury.
IVC filters are placed by doctors in order to catch blood clots before they can travel to the lungs or heart, resulting in pulmonary or cardiac embolism. Ideally, they do this while still allowing healthy blood flow. To this day, over 2 million IVC filters have been placed in patients.
