Ethicon’s Physiomesh Withdrawal

adobestock_118303046-1

In June of 2016 manufacturer, Ethicon, subsidiary of giant Johnson & Johnson, began to withdraw from the market the surgical mesh for hernias called Physiomesh. The product is a flexible composite mesh and it was found that revisions were needed in a large number of hernia repairs using Physiomesh. This market withdrawal was helpful in keeping the product from being used with patients in surgeries after the withdrawal, but was of no good for those already having surgery with Physiomesh and suffering consequences. In fact, it has been estimated that as of November, 2016 300,000 Physiomesh implants might have been placed after its approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2010!

Complications from Physiomesh have been alleged as infection within and also around the mesh once it’s implanted. This can cause abdominal abscesses, intestinal fistula, bowel obstruction, and possible other complications. Complications have required major surgery in patients, while not correcting the original pre-surgical diagnosis. There have been at least 650 Adverse Event Reports to the FDA with no real consequences to Ethicon. It is expected that this will result in a very large number of lawsuits and a motion for Multidistrict Litigation (MDL) to consolidate all of the cases and fight the giant Ethicon.

If you or a loved one has been injured by Physiomesh, or any medical device, drug, or other product, consult your medical provider and please contact Inserra Kelley Sewell, Personal Injury Attorneys, to discuss your potential justice and entitlement to compensation for your damages.

 

Proton Pump Inhibitor Lawsuits (Prilosec & Nexium)

adobestock_126826532-1As Inserra Kelley Sewell, Injury Attorneys has informed its readership in the past, there are a group of medications frequently used for heartburn and acid reflux that have come under fire for their dangers to your health.  Proton pump inhibitors (PPI), including Prilosec, Nexium, Protonix, Dexilant, and Prevacid, have been linked to possible dementia, Alzheimer’s, heart issues, and kidney damage.  These drugs contain Omeprazole that was intended to be a block against the body producing gastric acid.  Six plaintiffs who now have kidney damage as a result of this class of drugs very recently filed a motion for the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation to create a new MDL 2757.  This motion would make it possible for dozens of plaintiffs across the United States to have their lawsuits brought together against the companies that manufacture these dangerous proton pump inhibitors.  These cases are just some of the fifteen actions that have been filed in the federal courts across the United States and they assert the plaintiffs have suffered kidney issues that include  acute interstitial nephritis (AIN), chronic kidney disease (CKD), and renal failure, or end-stage renal disease (ESRD).   

The manufacturers that are the defendants in the kidney damage lawsuits resulting from PPIs include Takeda Pharmaceuticals, AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals, Pfizer, and the Procter & Gamble Co.  Given the fact the PPIs are used by the masses for heartburn, it would be wise for patients to discuss the pros versus the terrible cons involved with using these medications.  An alternative to the PPI is a histamine H2 receptor blocker.  One must be cautious with those as well, however, as there has been some smaller linkage of these alternatives to kidney and other problems.  Patients have seen vague symptomatology with the kidney injuries from the PPIs, including things like general fatigue, weakness, and nausea.  Therefore, it is vital that patients be educated on these drugs and consult their medical provider before using them. 

If you or a loved one has been harmed by the use of PPIs or other drugs, do not hesitate to contact the caring professional at Inserra Kelley Sewell for information as to whether you might have a claim to compensation.  This firm is able to answer your questions in regards to the latest Proton Pump Inhibitor lawsuits and MDL information.    

Verdict Against Johnson & Johnson for Over One Billion on Hip Implants

adobestock_69699887Johnson & Johnson has lost a third case regarding its defective, dangerous hip implants and have been ordered to pay out over one billion dollars!  This is a victory for the consumer patient against a giant manufacturing metal on metal hip implants that have been known to cause terrible health consequences over and over.  Companies, such as Johnson & Johnson, DePuy, and Smith & Nephew have manufactured these metal on metal joint implant medical devices and failed to inform the public time and time again about their dangers for metallic blood poisoning and carcinogens being let loose in the body of patients once the metal parts rub against each other.  The plaintiffs involved in this lawsuit experienced tissue death, bone erosion, and other injuries from the Johnson & Johnson hip implants, so it is justice to see the company be held accountable after its product caused life changing problems for innocent and unaware patients.   Of course the manufacturing giant has already promised appeals, but they face over eight thousand lawsuits over their hip implants.    

If you or a loved one has been injured by a recalled medical device product, such as the Johnson & Johnson, DePuy, or Smith & Nephew metal on metal joint implants, consult your medical provider and please contact  Inserra Kelley Sewell, Personal Injury Attorneys, to discuss your possible claim and entitlement to compensation for your damages.

Smith & Nephew Hip Recall

adobestock_126371093Smith & Nephew is a medical device manufacturer in London that provides their products worldwide used in hip, knee, and shoulder replacements.  Their latest recall involving their hip replacement systems and the company voluntarily mailed out safety notice letters to inform the consumer on November 15, 2016

The devices involved in the recall are the modular neck hip prostheses of the Modular SMF and Modular REDAPT revision femoral hip systems.  The joint replacement manufacturing giant made the decision to issue the hip system recalls because of, in their words, “a higher than anticipated complaint and adverse event trend.”  This is not the first time the company has seen such complaints and adverse events in their history, but this latest one is due to their medical devices posing the danger to patients of metal debris being released by the implant into the blood.  This can cause chromium and cobalt ion releases into the blood that can cause blood poisoning and also DNA damage (genotoxicity).  Muscles and bones can be destroyed with these issues and the toxicity can carry over to other organs as well.  The cobalt ions have caused heart muscle disease (cardiomyopathy).  Metal poisoning occurs when there is loosening of the medical device and the bone and muscle surrounding the replacement deteriorate.
