Cook Medical’s Celect IVC filters and Günther Tulip IVC filters may cause injuries to patients due to the fracturing, tilting and migrating of the devices. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has warned that retrievable Inferior Vena Cava (IVC) filters, like Cook Medical’s devices, have the potential to fail if they remain in patients longer than necessary. Studies of Cook Medical’s IVC filters have concluded that the devices are prone to tilt and perforate the vena cava and cause complications in patients implanted with the device. IVC Filter Lawsuits have been filed on behalf of patients who allege that Cook Medical failed to adequately warn about the risks associated with its Celect IVC filters and Günther Tulip IVC filters.
