Bard IVC Filter
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has issued a safety alert regarding the risk presented by long term use of interior vena cava (IVC) filters, which are intended to catch blood clots before they can reach a patient’s heart and lungs. Patients with IVC filters are typically those with a history of blood clots in their legs, those diagnosed with deep vein thrombosis (DVT), trauma victims, recent surgery patients or patients who have immobilizing conditions.
