The Dangers of a Bard IVC Filter
Publish Date : 10/26/2015
In August, the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation ordered the centralization of all Bard IVC Filter cases in the District of Arizona. This order was an acknowledgement by the court that many people are having problems with their Bard IVC Filters. When cases are centralized into a multidistrict litigation (MDL), it allows all plaintiffs to share the cost of pre-trial work and prevents duplicative discovery. For those who have been injured, this means that litigation is less expensive and takes less time.
Bard IVC Filter patients are experiencing serious side effects
The cases in the Arizona MDL all allege shocking injuries that resulted from the implantation of Bard IVC Filters. One of the most common and serious types of alleged injury occurs when pieces of the filter break off into metal fragments that can travel through the blood stream. These fragments eventually catch and embed themselves in various parts of the body. Sometimes these fragments cause more minor injuries such as bleeding or discomfort, but when fragments end up in the heart or brain, they can cause truly life-altering injuries and even death.
