It has become apparent that there is a large number of drugs and devices class actions that have been filed against manyfacturers that have targeted women.
We can start with the Dow Corning siicone breast implant class action of years ago. Women are still suffering today. The Dow Corning Trust just recently launched a silicone breast implant explant program. The leaking silicone and bursting implants lead to toxicity related immune system diseases like lupus and fibromylagia and other immune deficiency diseases. Women to this date are still suffering from their Dow silicone Breast Implants and the Dow Corning settlement trust is stll living out payments like the new breast explant program.
Fosamax was supposed to cure osteoporosis but ended up causing femur fractures.Then we have Yaz and Yasmine birth control pills. Young women were having their lives altered by pre-mature strokes, pulmonary embolisms, deep vein thrombosis, blood clots and heart attacks. Many girls harmed were barely starting a college life.
History moves along to the metal on metal and metal componednt hip replacements like the DePuy Pinnacle and ASR Hip Replacement and the Stryker Rejuvinate and ABG II Modular Stems. These are a metal on metal hip replacement recalled for their need for revision surgery. These hip replacements failed in women more then men. The smaller frame of a women makes the device more prone to problems in the female structure.
NuvRing has been another disaster for women causing:
blood clots in women
cerebral thrombosis in women
deep vein thrombosis
heart attack in women
retinal thrombosis in women
stroke or cerebral hemorrhage
thrombophlebitis and venous thrombosis with or without embolism
toxic shock syndrome
Fosamax for osteoporosis actually causes what it is prescribed to fix , femur fractures.

The U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation is considering forming an MDL to handle the growing number of Stryker lawsuits.

This was done due to reports that the implants were causing complications including loosening of the joint, corrosion, and increased risk of inflammation as well as metal toxicity. Many victims of these failed devices have had to undergo revision surgery to remove and replace them long before they reached the end of their expected 15-20 year lifespan. On March 18, 2013, Stryker filed a brief with the JPML, agreeing that coordination of lawsuits involving the recalled devices was appropriate.

Stryker has recalled a number of hip replacements including: Stryker Rejuvinate, Stryker ABG II and the Trident. Lawsuits are being filed against Stryker for implant failure of all these devices
Stryker recalled its Trident artificial hip in 2007 due to device failures in recipients. Previous plaintiffs have cited symptoms consistent with other defective metal-on-metal hip implants, along with one defect that was unique to the Trident device: Many recipients claimed of hearing a loud squeaking noise coming from their hip region after receiving this particular model.
Stryker recalls on the Rejuvinate and ABG II will effect thousands and the lawsuits are coming in in mass. The FDA has taken another look and is proposing changes to regulations that allowed two Stryker Corp. recalled hip implant systems to be deemed safe. But the move does little for the tens of thousands of patients already implanted with the faulty medical devices. The DePuy Pinnacle and ASR are other failed recalled hip replacements that have injured thousands of victims. The FDA proposed changes for the 510(k) Premarket Notification Process for the approval of metal-on-metal hip implants like those manufactured by Stryker and DePuy come very late for seniors burdened with painful revision surgeries.
In July 2012, after injured patients filed more than 60 adverse event reports with the FDA, Stryker issued a voluntary recall of its ABG II and Rejuvenate hip implant systems. Post-market surveillance revealed that a metal-on-metal junction in these devices can shed metal debris, causing pain and tissue damage that may require a revision surgery. Can the FDA actually step up to the plate and protect our citizens?
The FDA’s most recent proposal aims to standardize the requirements for how the agency accepts data, regardless of the submission or application type. The new regulation will require 510(k) submissions to be scrutinized by an institutional review board (IRB), a must for PMA applications.
The proposal for better practices in approval of medical devices like hip implants would become effective 180 days after publication, and the proposal to shift from 510(k) to PMA for metal hips would become effective 90 days after publication. Lawyers for Stryker and Depuy hip replacements are filing lawsuits for failed devices.
GranuFlo and Naturalyte are dialysis medications that have been causing sudden heart attacks and death. A motion has been filed to establish a GranuFlo MDL. GranuFlo deaths have been mounting up.
GranuFlo Lawsuit MDL Motion Filed, Lawyers are ready for action
A motion was filed on December 12, 2012 with the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation, requesting that an MDL be established in the district of Massachusetts to consolidate lawsuits making claims against Fresenius Medical Care over the dialysis concentrates GranuFlo and NaturaLyte. .
Fresenius the maker of GranuFlo knew of GranuFlo risks and used the product in 100's of clinics they owned as well as other dialysis clinics nationwide. 941 patients have died from a GranuFlo heart attack at Fresenius clinics. A GranuFlo recall was issued in June 2012.
There is a Heart attack risk From the Dialysis Medications GranuFlo and NaturaLyte
Both GranuFlo and NaturaLyte aredialysis medication concentrates that are used during hemodialysis to prevent acid buildup. GranuFlo is the powder form. NaturaLyte is in liquid form. A Fresenius memo warned that GranuFlo and Naturalyte could elevate bicarbonate levels in the blood more than other dialysis concentrates. Doctors were not properly adjusting the dosage of GranuFlo and NaturaLyte. The result was bicarbonate overdose.
Metabolic Alkalosis From GranuFlo and Naturalyte
- low blood pressure,
- heart attacks.
If your loved one has had an immediate heart attack and you have lost a loved one due to dialysis medications GranuFlo and Naturalyte contact us for a GranuFlo, Naturalyte lawyer lawsuit today.
The DePuy metal on metal hip replacement is currently in the ligation process. The DePuy is a part of a long line of metal on metal hip recalls, the most recent being the Stryker metal component hip replacements. As the trials progress executives will be questioned as to knowledge of the potential failure of these devices.
Executives that will be questioned include David Floyd, former president of DePuy at the time of the 2010 recall; Tom Camino, worldwide hip development director; and Rodrigo Diaz, manager of clinical research. Additional executives include the director of marketing, manager of development, director of biostatistics and data management, and member of the research and development team.
The DePuy is a part of a massive multi distrct litigation effecting 1000's of people with a hip implant that failed. Most of them will require additional surgeries with rehabilitation. The problem appears to be that these revision surgeries are not always working. Many people, mostly seniors, have been severely debilitated by these failed hips and their quality of life will never be the same again. Additional problems include metal on metal chromium and cobalt toxicity.
The most recent updates report that Judge Brian R. Martinotti of Bergen County Superior Court in New Jersey issued an order setting September 9, 2013 and October 21, 2013 as the dates for the first two ASR bellwether trials to be held in the state’s multicounty litigation against DePuy Orthopaedics. Attorneys for both sides must select three cases as bellwether trial candidates by October 15, 2012.
The latest news on the Stryker Rejuvinate recall reports that Stryker has warned in its recall notice that patients with the Rejuvenate or AGB II hip implant components may develop adverse reactions that could manifest with symptoms of pain and/or swelling.* According to a recent report it appears eight people have filed lawsuits in New Jersey Superior Court, Bergen County claiming Stryker sold their Rejuvenate hip stem while knowing it had problems. The Stryker also appears to be having the same metal on metal toxicity problems as the DePuy even thou it is a metal component and not metal on metal product.
If you have a faulty DePuy or Stryker product you are encouraged to call our Metal on metal hip replacement helpline today to speak to a hip replacement lawyer.
