According to a Safety Communication issued by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), surgically implanted blood clot filters are prone to breaking, resulting in the movement of pieces of the filter through the blood. These pieces may puncture veins or internal organs, causing internal bleeding and other serious side effects that can be life-threatening. If you or a loved one had a blood clot filter surgically implanted, even if you haven’t suffered serious side effects, you may be entitled to a cash award!

Below is a two-part news story on the dangers of the IVC blood clot filter that aired on the NBC Nightly News.
The FDA has recommended that doctors who implant blood clot filters monitor their patients closely and remove the filters as soon as it is medically safe to do so. Risks associated with the IVC filter include filter fracture, movement of pieces of the filter through the blood stream, embolization (movement of the entire filter or fracture fragments to the heart or lungs), puncture of the inferior vena cava, and difficulty removing the device.
If you or a loved one had surgery to implant a blood clot filter and suffered serious side effects such as internal bleeding, puncture of veins or internal organs by filter pieces, or blood clots in the lower limbs, you may be entitled to a cash award. Even if you haven’t suffered side effects yet, call Gold Shield Group at 888-535-8784 to see if you qualify for a cash award.
