It is true, a research study in the October 2015 issue ofAnnals of Surgeryreports that inferior vena cava filters are not just able of injuring and killing people, but that they are also useless, offering no advantage to patients. The study was carried out at the University of Michigan and examined data on over 800 patients who received IVC filters between 2010 and 2014. The scientists study result was:
High rates of prophylactic IVC filter placement have no impact on reducing trauma case mortality and are associated with an increase in DVT events. Thus, according to this study IVC filters are routinely inserted by physicians when the filters are not medically indicated, the filters are ineffective at reducing the risk of deep-vein thromboses (DVT), and the filters actually exacerbate the very condition DVT that they are thought to treat.You can also visit http://www.bardfilterlawsuitcenter.com/ here to know more on ivc filters.
The FDA has previously advised that these filters tend to break once implanted and can move and cause internal injury or death. Lawsuits filed by IVC filter victims are pending in various fields, and more are being filed every day. Yet, the manufacturers of these filters, who are keen to play in the lucrative medical device market, continue to promote IVC filters to physicians who either dont know that the filters are inefficient and pose a danger to their victims or who are unscrupulous and who are able, willing, and able to utilize and profit off of any piece of worthless junk pumped out by the medical device industrial complex. And, it is all for the money.
