What is the VenaTech LGM IVC Filter?
VenaTech LGM IVC filters were designed as permanent vena cava filters to prevent blood clots and pulmonary embolisms. These Bard IVC filters have been discontinued; however, thousands of patients remain implanted with the potentially dangerous device.
These retrievable IVC filters were first developed and released in France by LG Medical; the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the filter in 1989.
