As U.S. IVC Filter Lawsuits Mount, Canadians File Class Actions over Alleged Cook Medical Blood Clot Filter Injuries
Mar 3 16
Two IVC filters lawsuits have been filed in Canada that seek damages on behalf of patients who allegedly sustained serious injuries from blood clot filters manufactured by Cook Medical Inc. The two class actions claim that patients were not properly warned of the serious risks associated with the company's inferior vena cava (IVC) filters, including their potential to fracture and migrate to other parts of the body. Both lawsuits seek millions of dollars in damages on behalf of Canadian patients implanted with the filters. U.S. IVC Filter Litigation Court documents indicate that more than 250 Cook IVC filter lawsuits involving the company's Celect and Gunther Tulip blood clot filters have been centralized in a multidistrict litigation now underway in the U.S. District Court, Southern District of Indiana. An additional 84 cases involving C.R. Bard's Recovery and G2 IVC filter are pending in a second multidistrict litigation located in the U.S. District Court, District of Arizona. IVC filters are implanted in the inferior vena cava in order to intercept blood clots before they can travel to the lungs and become a pulmonary embolism. The devices at the center of the Canadian class actions, as well as the litigations underway in the U.S., involve retrievable devices that are intended to be removed once a patient is no longer at risk for pulmonary embolism. However, a study that appeared in JAMA: Internal Medicine in April 2013 suggested that successful IVC retrieval occurred in less than 10% of patients.
