This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The French Ministry for Social Affairs has banned the sale and use of some vena cava filters manufactured by French company Antheor. Following reports of serious incidents, the authorities say the filter could migrate into the intercardiac cavities during the first few months after implantation. The ministry has called for the immediate withdrawal of Antheor D3, DC3, D4 and DC4 filters and for the precautionary removal of its Standard and Large vena cava filters.
