Report: Device Maker’s Internal Documents Reveal IVC Filter Was Prone to Failure
A once-confidential study commissioned by medical device maker C.R. Bard is revealing more information about the risks associated with its IVC filter devices. According to NBC News, internal Bard documents obtained by the news agency offer further evidence that Bard’s G2 series filter was prone to fail and cause medical problems, and that the company was well aware of this risk.
Intended to prevent blood clots from traveling through the body to the lungs and heart, the spider-shaped G2 series filter allegedly been linked to hundreds of problems and 12 fatalities. A replacement for another of Bard’s IVC filter devices, the G2 series rose in popularity after Bard pulled its Recovery filter from the market following 27 deaths allegedly associated with the device. Despite clearance by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Bard’s internal documents reveal that the company’s own vice president questioned why an alternative model with less complaints wasn’t used instead of the G2. He also expressed concerns about the G2’s propensity for perforating, tilting or migrating within the human body, the news site reported.
