Episode 17: IVC Filters
You’re listening to the Ask Lori Podcast, episode 17 IVC filters so uhm Roxell
Well, what is an IVC filter?
So an IVC filter is what we call it.
But this is what it means.
It is basically an inferior.
Vena cava filter.
It’s a small cone shaped device that is implanted in your inferior vena cava, just below your kidneys.
It’s usually designed to capture an embolism or a blood clot that has, you know, broken loose from one of the deep veins in the legs.
Or it’s a way.
To the heart and lungs.
So usually you you put this in as a way to.
Prevent blood clots.
OK, that sounds really important.
Want blood clots?
And why are we having a podcast about it?
So the reason why we’re having a podcast about it is because there is litigation.
Going on about this.
Unfortunately, when most doctors in inserted this IVC.
And I’m using the short abbreviated version, but most doctors put this in the patient’s. What happens is they’re they’re realizing that it becomes irremovable, and because it becomes irremovable this little this little.
Counting or small little device, it ends up breaking, breaking apart sometimes and in some cases it can puncture other organs.
In some cases it can lead to death.
In some cases it can become proliferated.
In some cases it could.
It could, you know.
Fracture other things and it’s just become.
Unfortunately, one of the one of the cases that are is now commonly filed in the federal court in what we not commonly called a multi district litigation.
Wow, that does not sound good, yes.

What if I had a surgery and they put it in?
