What’s the problem?

March 3, 2017 – According to the lawsuit, Plaintiff Debra Victor was implanted with an Argon Option ELITE IVC filter on September 19, 2014, to protect her against pulmonary embolism (blood clot in the lungs).

On April 4, 2016, Victor’s doctor attempted to remove the blood clot filter from her body, but was unable to because the device had become embedded in her vena cava.

The complaint alleges that Argon and Rex Medical negligently manufactured a defective medical device, failed to warn consumers of potential health risks, and marketed a product that could increase risk of “severe health side effects, including, but not limited to: hemorrhage; cardiac/pericardial tamponade; cardiac arrhythmia and other symptoms similar to myocardial infarction; perforations of tissue, vessels and organs; and other severe personal injuries and diseases.”

Victor is alleging counts of negligence, strict products liability, failure to warn, and breach of warranty. She is seeking a jury trial and recovery for all claims of action related to the lawsuit, all appropriate fees and expenses, plus punitive damages and any other relief the court deems fit.

The complaint was filed against Argon Medical Devices and Rex Medical L.P. on Feb. 17, 2017, in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas under case number 170204272.
