  • Explanation of IVC Filters

    These spider-like devices are implanted in the IVC, which is the central vessel returning blood from the bottom half of the body to the heart. Their purpose is to block blood clots from connecting with the lungs or heart and avoid life-threatening emergencies. Those who cannot tolerate blood thinners or anticoagulant medications often use IVC filters including removable or permanent ones.

    Reported Complications!

    Between 2005 and 2010, the FDA received 921 reports about problems with IVC filters. Some of these dangers include:

  • Blood clots, which may clog the filter and slow blood flow into the lungs
  • Deep vein thrombosis, or blood clots that usually occur in the legs
  • Movement of the entire filter or broken fragments in the heart, lungs or IVC
  • Fluid buildup around the heart, which interferes with proper function
  • Problems removing the IVC filter
  • Perforation of the IVC, heart or lungs
  • Tilting of the device or erosion

  • Some of these issues led to additional complications and long-term health risks including blood clots in the lower limbs, IVC blockage and even death. Many safety concerns remain about permanent and removable IVC filters, which studies still need to clarify. The FDA recommends that removable filters are taken out when the short-term risk for pulmonary embolism, or the blockage of a major artery, is addressed.
