G2 IVC Filter Lawsuits

G2™ Filter System Lawsuits allege that the G2 Filter System possesses manufacturing and design defects which resulted in device failure. The injured plaintiffs experienced fracture and migration of the G2 Filter.

In 2005, Bard Peripheral Vascular began selling its G2 IVC filter. This replaced the Recovery IVC filter.

Despite the "enhanced fracture resistance" and "enhanced migration resistance" advertisements by Bard Peripheral Vascular, the device has still been shown to fracture, fail and migrate.

Recovery IVC Filter Lawsuits

The Recovery IVC filter was approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 2002. It was placed on the market for use in 2003.

Its manufacturer, Bard Peripheral Vascular withdrew the Recovery IVC filter from the market in 2005 and replaced it with the G2 IVC filter. The G2 IVC filter is the "second generation" of the Recovery IVC filter.

A recent medical report has found that 25% of all Bard Recovery IVC filters and 12% of Bard G2 IVC filters fractured. These fractured filters have the potential become dislodged and cause serious and fatal injury.

71% of the broken pieces migrated through the veins of the patient to the heart. The FDA has received more than 900 reports of adverse events, including:

  • Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)
  • Filter Fracture, Migration or Embolization, leading to Injury to the Heart, Lung or Vena Cava
  • Cardiac or Pericardial Tamponade
  • Severe Persistent Chest Pain
  • Shortness of Breath
  • Death
