Texas embolism death Lawyer and Texas Medical Device Fragment Lawyer, Jason Coomer, handles Texas medical device fragment (UDFs) claims seeking compensation for those that have suffered significant injuries and damages from fragments that may have separated from a device during a medical procedure. According to the FDA Public Health Notification and The Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) nearly 1000 adverse events are reported each year relating to UDFs. More than 200 different medical devices have been included in the unretrieved medical device fragment reports. The adverse events reported include local tissue reaction, infection, perforation and obstruction of blood vessels, and death. During MRI procedures, magnetic fields may cause metallic fragments to migrate, and radiofrequency fields may cause them to heat, causing internal tissue damage and/or burns.

Defective Inferior Vena Cava Filters can migrate, fracture, and break apart inside a person causing death or serious health issues.

Use of Inferior Vena Cava Filters Includes Placement In People with Deep Venous Thrombosis and Prophylactically in People at Risk for a Pulmonary Embolism
Inferior vena cava filters (IVC filters) are a type of vascular filter that is implanted into the inferior vena cava to prevent life-threatening pulmonary emboli (PEs). IVC filters are typically used by interventional radiologists or vascular surgeons in patients that are at risk for a pulmonary embolism or who have a venous thromboembolic disease. Inferior vena cava (IVC) filter placement is most commonly indicated for deep venous thrombosis (DVT) or pulmonary embolism (PE) when anticoagulation therapy is contraindicated.
Pharmaceutical Fraud, Bad Drug, and Product Liability Lawsuits
As a Texas Defective Medical Device Lawyer, Jason Coomer commonly works with other Defective IVC Filter Lawyers throughout the United States as well as in Texas. In working with other Defective IVC Filter lawyers, we seek compensation from negligent drug companies and other companies that have severely injured or killed people selling dangerous medical devices that they should have known were dangerous, but intentionally mislead consumers and hid dangerous health risk in order to sell more product to make a profit.
If you have suffered a serious injury that you believe is related to the use of an IVC Filter or a person close to you has suffered serious health problems or has died while from a defective IVC Filter implanted in them, it is important to contact a doctor and the FDA to report the incident.
