IVC FIlter Side Effects


Are IVC Filters Safe?
IVC filters are used to prevent pulmonary embolism, but many users have found they do more harm than good. This is especially the case when retrievable filter are used to treat short-term risk for pulmonary embolism. This type of filter is newer than the permanent filters that have been in use for decades and many people are now calling into question the safety of these retrievable alternatives.

What Does the FDA Say about IVC Filters?
One of the main reasons people are debating the safety of retrievable IVC filters is because they are not being used properly. Doctors are even recommending them when the need for an IVC filter is in question at all. Furthermore, they are placing temporary filters and not removing them. Some device manufacturers have stated it is safe to leave retrievable filters in place, but many believe this is not the case at all. Studies have shown that the longer a retrievable filter is in place the higher the risk for complications, and as a result of the data and approximately 1000 adverse event reports, the FDA issued a warning concerning these filters.

Overall, the FDA still considers IVC filters, both permanent and retrievable, relatively safe and useful. However, they warn against doctors leaving these filters in place for any more than the recommended time frame. The FDA even issued guidelines encouraging doctors to retrieve the temporary filters within 60 days of placing them.

Do IVC Filters Work?
Some in the medical community even argue that IVC filters are useful for treating pulmonary embolism. Some aren’t willing to go as far as to question the safety of the device, but they think they are unproven and that more information is needed to show IVC filters are capable of dealing with short-term pulmonary embolism risk.
If your doctor has suggested you consider an IVC filter because you face a heightened risk for pulmonary embolism, you should consider a number of factors. It would be helpful to seek a second opinion from a doctor that is familiar with your medical condition and your current risk of pulmonary embolism, provided there is time.

IVC filters have been safe for many people, but there are also many who have complaints and in some cases, these complains are serious. Patients using IVC filters have been forced to undergo follow-up procedures to locate migrated filters and to fix breakage that has occurred in an implanted filter. The removal procedure for a retrievable filter is much less of a hassle than the operation needed to locate and remove a failed filter.
