Contaminated Devices by LivaNova (fka Sorin) Dangerous for Heart Surgery Patients

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have put out warnings about contaminated devices used in open heart surgery made with LivaNova PLC (formerly Sorin Group Deutschland GmbH).  The device is a the 3T heater-cooler devices that are used during open heart surgeries for keeping the blood circulating and the organs at set temperatures while the patient is undergoing cardiothoracic surgery.  The devices have been found to cause infections that can be dangerous and even deadly, so patients who have undergone open heart surgery are warned to look for symptoms of infection.  These include symptoms such as fever, fatigue, muscular aching, weight loss, and night sweats. 

It is vital for patients to be evaluated immediately if they fit the categories of cardiothoracic surgery patients and have experienced any of the above symptoms.  Medical providers should be contacted so that evaluation and necessary interventions can begin right away.  The CDC and FDA both made initial announcements regarding the 3T heater-coolers back in 2015 and since then have been able to make matches to bacteria from the devices to bacteria found in actual patients.  The bacteria are Mycobacterium chimaera, which come from the nontuberculous mycobacterium (NTM) species found in soil and water at times.  When it is contacted in the environment, it does not often cause sickness in humans, but when the bacterium is introduced in the surgical environment, it can cause infections that can be missed or difficult to treat.  The bacterium grow very slowly, so cultures are required and it can be months before an infection is confirmed or ruled out.  Therefore, it is important to reiterate that the medical provider should be contacted at the first hints or signs of infection, since the old adage is often true that it is better to be safe than sorry. 

If you or a loved one has experienced problems with an infection from a 3T heater-cooler device being used during cardiothoracic surgery, or any medical device, drug, or other product, 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.     

Erectile Dysfunction Medications Linked to Blindness

Erectile dysfunction drugs have become big sellers since the first one, Viagra, was approved in 1998.  Viagra, Cialis, and Levitra are enormous money makers for the drug companies that manufacture them.  What many people may not realize is that Dr. Howard Pomeranz, a neuroopthalmologist and associate professor at  Hofstra Northwell School of Medicine in New York is speaking out about the drugs’ side effects of blindness.  Dr. Pomeranz has been letting the public know that he had a patient who used the drug and found that within an hour he was did not have vision in one of his eyes and that he has been hearing of similar patient cases and published reports of people experiencing blindness after Viagra back in 2005.  The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) became involved and warnings were put on labels for Viagra, Cialis, and Levitra, while at the same time the drug companies downplayed the risk of permanent vision loss from the optic nerve having its blood flow shut off.  The official name for the disease is anterior ischemic optic neuropathy and it had always been linked to diseases in the body that compromised circulation, such as blood pressure problems, diabetes, and other issues.  Dr. Pomeranz reports that the FDA then required that the three major manufacturers of the drugs do in depth studies, but as of 2017 only Pfizer, the maker of Viagra, had complied.  That Pfizer study proved that those taking Viagra were at risk of developing ischemic optic neuropathy within 24 hours of taking the drug or other such erectile dysfunction drugs, which was two times the risk of those not taking these drugs.  Pfizer did update its labels but still contends that it is really not scientifically possible to state that the blindness is caused by the erectile dysfunction drugs versus other reasons and conditions, but Dr. Pomeranz contends that this eye disease is likely greatly under reported beyond the 40 or so cases Pfizer reports and the hundreds of cases on the FDA reporting database, so he is getting the word out to his fellow ophthalmologists since they are not the doctors who prescribe the drugs.  While Dr. Pomeranz does not say that patients should not use the erectile dysfunction drugs, he is contending that it is very necessary for patients and medical providers to know the risks and weigh them against the benefits.  

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a problem related to erectile dysfunction drugs, or any medical device, drug, or other product, 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.     

Monsanto’s Roundup Weed Killer Danger Assertions

Monsanto, the maker of Roundup Weed Killer is in a fight regarding its use of glyphosate in its products after the California EPA is pushing and moving forward to declare the ingredient a carcinogen.  After 40 years of Monsanto marketing the product as being just as “safer than table salt” and stronger than the possibility of weeds developing resistance to it, the ingredient is showing up in foods and California wines.  Both of Monsanto’s claims have been proven untrue but the manufacturing giant keeps fighting and pushing the ingredient as good.  The more the weeds resist the pesticide product, the more pesticides are needed in a never-ending circular problem that makes big bucks for Monsanto.  Monsanto tried to get the Courts to accept its argument that it’s not lawful for the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer having any say in our Courts since it’s not elected in the United States and a foreign body.  The Courts shot that argument down and the fight continues.  Meanwhile, even organic brands of food are finding traces of the possible carcinogen, glyphosate in their products.

If you or a loved one has been injured by a product such as Monsanto’s Roundup Weed Killer, 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.

Livly Children’s Sleepwear Recall

Livly Clothing has recalled children’s sleepwear sets consisting of a top and bottom, as well as their long sleeve robes.  The pajama sets have a sewn label that says  “LIVLY, www.livlyclothing.com” and RN number 146214 on that label.  The robe has a chest pocket with the work “Mini” on it and a fabric label with “LIVLY” on the inside of the robe.  

The reason for the Livly recall is failure to meet flammability standards set by the federal government, so there is a possibly of burn risk to children wearing the pajamas or robes.  Livly is offering refunds for the products at www.livlyclothing.com or 844-350-7728.   

If your child has received a burn injury due to the flammable pajama sets or robes of Livly Clothing, consult your medical provider and contact Inserra Kelley Sewell, personal injury attorneys to discuss your possible injury claim.  For a refund on the product recall, which is the more likely scenario with this product recall, ask for a full refund as explained above.
