Numerous small published articles and case studies report describe similar issues to the above. Most notably:

Filter fracture: Broken struts migrate to retroperitoneum, requiring exploration. Also struts can migrate to the heart and can cause pericardial effusion and tamponade.
Perforation into the duodenum: Resulting in severe diarrhea and weight loss.
Arterial hemorrhage: Requires surgery to avoid death.
Misplaced Filter: Causes pericardiac tamponade requiring surgery under cardiopulmonary bypass.
Filter Migration to Right Atrium: Resulting in acute myocardial infarction.
Filter Lodged in Heart: Causes life-threatening arrhythmia and often requires pacemakers to resolve condition.
Heart Migration: Requires surgery to remove IVC from heart.
Sudden Death: Caused by the filter migrating to an active region in the heart.
Migration of Filter to Chest: Requires surgery.
Perforation of filter strut into small-bowel: Requires surgery to repair perforation.

Even though the cases above are the exception, and not the rule, most radiologists object to doing prophylactic filter insertions in patients who do not have thromboembolic diseases. For the most part, whenever possible, interventional radiologists would rather start the patient on anticoagulants than use an IVC, even if requested or referred via a doctor.

FDA Communication According to IVC Filter WIKI

In August, 2010, the FDA released an Initial Communication on the Risk and Adverse events associated with Long Term use of an inferior vena cava filter.[17] Over a period of about 5 years, they identify 921 events. While not the majority of cases, that number still represents a statistical significance of the use of long-term IVCs.

Of these IVC filter side effects, 328 involved device migration, 146 involved embolizations after detachment of device components, 70 involved perforation of the IVC, and 56 involved filter fracture. Much of the medical community believes that this large number of adverse events is related to the heart filter remaining in place for longer than necessary.

Common issues relating to failure, to include death (the other 4% of cases) include:

Device-associated morbidity
Device migration
Filter embolization
Filter fracture
Insertion-site thrombosis
Perforation of the vena cava
Recurrent DVT
Recurrent PE
Thrombotic complications
Vena cava thrombosis

Less common adverse reactions

While these side effects are not common (less than 10-20% of patients), many do report issues stemming from the placement and complication of the IVC while inside of the body.

9% (12 of 132 patients) delayed filter penetration of the IVC greater than 3 mm
Parts of filter broke off in 2% (5 of 230 patients)
Caval filter migrated to heart or pulmonary artery (4 patients)

How Does an IVC Filter Work?

The mediocre vena cava is the biggest vein in the body. It moves de-oxygenated blood from the lower legs to the heart and afterward the lungs. To keep blood clumps from going through the vein into the lungs, specialists embed an IVC filter in the vein.

A specialist embeds the gadget utilizing a catheter – a dainty tube – into a patient’s inferior vena cava through a little entry point in the neck or groin. The gadget's device's metal wires catch and trap blood clots before they can achieve the lungs.

A few filters are permanent, and some are retrievable or transitory. Specialists evacuate retrievable filters similarly that they embed them. Healthcare providers infuse differentiation or X-ray color around the device to ensure it is protected to continue with the evacuation. A catheter-like catch goes into the vein and gets the snare situated toward the end of the filter. The filter is then secured by a sheath and hauled out of the vein.

Inferior Vena Cava filters - IVC Filter are designed to catch blood clots before they move into the lungs. Roughly 200,000 blood clot filters are implanted to prevent pulmonary embolisms each year, with the market expected to reach million dollars in 2015, according to the Research organizations.

Surgeons often choose to implant IVC filters when patients with pulmonary embolism or deep vein thrombosis have contraindications to anticoagulation drugs.

“However, IVC filters are not benign, and mounting evidence suggests their complication rate may be higher than previously recognized,” reports the CardioCCM Journal.

Former recipients have filed more than 100 IVC filter lawsuits against manufacturers C.R. Bard, Cook Medical and Cordis (Johnson & Johnson), alleging punctured veins and organs, fractured devices, chronic health issues and life-threatening events.
