What is the REX Medical Option Retrievable Vena Cava Filter System?

Rex Medical's Option ELITE retrievable inferior vena cava (IVC) filter was designed for the prevention of blood clots in the lungs, or pulmonary embolism (PE), the third leading cause of death among hospitalized patients in the United States. The filter can be retrieved or remain implanted depending on whether the patient needs short-term or long-term PE protection.

The REX Medical Option Retrievable Vena Cava Filter System was approved by the FDA in June 2009. In March 2011, Argon Medical Devices entered into a definitive license agreement with Rex Medical for exclusive global rights to market and distribute the Option Retrievable IVC Filter.

FDA Warning on Retrievable IVC Filters

In May 2014, the FDA recommended retrieving temporary IVC filters within 29-54 days of implantation. In August 2010, the agency also warned that temporary IVC filters had been linked to hundreds of severe adverse events, including filters that broke, migrated, or perforated the vena cava.

Option IVC Filter Lawsuits Filed in Texas

Argon Medical Devices is facing several lawsuits in Texas from people who were injured by the Option ELITE. In August 2016, a lawsuit was filed in Dallas County Circuit Court by a man who has an Option IVC filter permanently embedded in his body. According to the complaint:

“As long as the Option filter remains embedded in his vena cava, Plaintiff is at risk for future thrombosis, filter fractures, migrations, perforations, and tilting. He faces numerous health risks, including the risk of death.”

Two months later, another lawsuit was filed by a woman who also has an Option IVC filter permanently embedded in her body. The filter is impossible to remove because it perforated through her vena cava. It is also causing blood clots in her legs, chronic pain, swelling, vein damage, and circulation problems.
