Defective Product Spotlight: Bard IVC Filters

Retrievable IVC Filters, including the C.R. Bard's Recovery IVC Filter, have reportedly been fracturing and migrating inside of patients, leading to serious injuries, including the perforation of the interior vena cava (IVC). A fractured IVC filter can also perforate other organs, such as the heart and lungs. When a retrievable IVC filter fractures and migrates, patients can experience severe pain, bleeding, further embolus and other life-threatening complications. The likelihood of splintering increases the longer the device remains in the body.

It is alleged as early as 2003 Bard's (a division of Johnson & Johnson) own research showed that the IVC filters posed an unreasonable danger to patients from splintering. The company did not tell the Food & Drug Administration ("FDA") about their findings, or warn patients and doctors. Instead, they continued to sell and market the deadly Recovery IVC filter until it create a suitable replacement for the market.

This week, a Motion to centralize the existing Bard IVC filter law suits was granted by the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation ("MDL"). This will consolidate lawsuits pending in numerous courts around the nation against Bard.
