While the IVC filters may have a critical utility in preventing blood clots from spreading throughout the body, these devices can also cause severe and even life-threatening injuries.
Unfortunately, an IVC filter that has not been inserted into the heart correctly, or has not been manufactured properly has the potential to break, tilt in the vein, or even migrate throughout the body where it can puncture veins or organs. Some of the most frequent IVC filter injuries include:
Heart rhythm problems
Shortness of breath
