IVC Filter Side Effects
What is the Future of IVC Filters?
IVC filters are used to prevent blood clots from creating fatal consequences. The filters hold the clot in place so it is unable to lodge in an area where it would block the flow of blood. Permanent IVC filters have been in use for decades and retrievable filters also have a significant history of use. Unfortunately, the news has not always been good concerning these filters and many are concerned the risk outweighs the reward in many cases.
What is the future for IVC filters?
Chances are permanent filters are here to stay. They have been used successfully for more than 40 years and will continue to be used as long as no other medical advancement is made. Most patients are happy with their permanent filter and give it very little though. It’s put in place, it works, and they move on with their lives.
On rare occasions there are problems with permanent filters and follow-up treatment is required. For many, the additional treatment needed to correct a problem is worth the risk as long as the filter prevents serious complications from blood clots.
Retrievable filters, on the other hand, have a long way to go before they are widely considered safe. In addition to the risk that come with the permanent filters, there are a slew of other reasons why someone would want to avoid placement of a retrievable filter.
For starters, many retrievable filters can’t even be retrieved. Once they are placed, scar tissue forms around the filter and doctors are unable to safely remove it. The patient is stuck with the filter forever, even though it is not a permanent filter. It should be noted that since retrievable filters are not made to last forever, they are unlikely to do so, even if the manufacturer claims it is safe to leave a retrievable filter in place.
Doctors, Consumers, and the FDA
Ultimately the future of IVC filters, both permanent and temporary, is up to doctors, patients, and the FDA. As long as the FDA continues to give clearance for filters, there is no legal reason why doctors would not be able to use them.
And if doctors deem filters safe and patients are willing to accept the risk that comes with using them, they will continue to be used. Eventually, an alternative therapy that comes with a great safety guarantee could arrive, but in the meantime, IVC filters are a popular way to prevent blood clots from becoming pulmonary embolisms.
