What is the B. Braun VenaTech LP IVC Filter?

Manufactured and marketed by B. Braun, the VenaTech LP inferior vena cava (IVC) filter features a conical design that is intended to remain in the body permanently. The filter is unique in that it is made from Phynox, “… a non-ferromagnetic alloy with MRI compatibility,” according to Braun. The VenaTech LP IVC filter was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2016.

What’s the Problem?

Despite Braun’s claims that its VenaTech LP vena cava filter is safe, a multitude of IVC filter complications and injuries have proven otherwise. The Braun VenaTech filter has shown a tendency to fracture and migrate from the vena cava, sometimes into the heart.

While the problems with Braun IVC filters are very real, the life-saving benefits touted by the company have been repeatedly called into question. The filters have never been subject to rigorous Level 1 FDA clinical trials that would prove they actually prevent a blood clot from becoming trapped in the lungs (pulmonary embolism).

Braun Blood Clot Lawsuit Filed in North Carolina

B. Braun Medical is facing an IVC filter lawsuit after one of the company’s blood clot filters allegedly caused the death of a North Carolina man. According to the complaint, Plaintiff Keith A. Waters was implanted with B. Braun’s VenaTech LP IVC filter in March 2015. The device subsequently fractured, which allowed pieces to migrate and lodge in his heart and lungs.

Waters died in August 2015, allegedly due to IVC filter complications that included filter thrombosis, multiple pulmonary emboli, and cardiac arrest. The lawsuit charges that the IVC filter Waters received was defective and dangerous when it was sold. (Case No. 5:17-CV-61).
