Cook Medical Hit With $1.2 Million Verdict in Texas IVC Filter Action

HOUSTON — A Texas state jury has awarded $1.24 million to a man who alleged that he was seriously injured when his inferior vena cava was perforated by a Celect IVC filter manufactured by Cook Medical Inc.

The Harris County District Court jury returned the May 24 verdict after determining that Cook Medical failed to adequately warn implanting surgeons about the Celect device.
