The recent NBCNews.com article, Why Did Firm Keep Selling Problem Blood-Clot Filters? covers C.R. Bard, a company that made IVC Recovery blood-clot filters, which was associated with 27 deaths. The IVC Filter devices were made to help prevent blood clots from going to the heart and lungs. The article stated:
“Confidential company records obtained by NBC News show that New Jersey-based medical device giant C.R. Bard was concerned about reports of failures for its G2 series filters, designed to replace the company’s Recovery filter, within four months of being cleared to sell the G2 by the Food and Drug Administration.”
“But instead of recalling the G2 filter, and the virtually identical G2 Express, the medical device manufacturer decided to keep them on the market for five years, until 2010, selling more than 160,000 of them.”
Babbitt and Johnson, P.A. is extensively investigating this and other allegations about IVC filters. If you or a loved one suffered a serious injury due to a defective IVC filter, you and your family may be entitled to financial compensation to help with medical costs, lost wages and other expenses.
