Revision surgeries may be needed due to premature failures. Stryker lawyers  are seeking patients with  LFit V40 femoral heads made before 2011.

FDA Benicar Warnings

The FDA   has warned patients and doctors that Benicar (olmesartan medoxomil) may cause a severe gastrointestinal (GI) problem called Villous Atrophy. Benicar causes the intestines to lose the texture and makes it difficult to absorb nutrients. This leads to malnutrition which and other digestive problems. This is very dangerous for seniors and can lead to death or hospitalization because of dehydration, chronic diarrhea and malnutrition. Villous Atrophy can result in limiting  the ability of the small intestines to absorb nutrients from food. At the most serious stages,  villous atrophy  causes  damage to the intestinal crypts, which is the intestinal lining that surround the villi.

DePuy Hip Replacement Lawsuit News, Hip Replacement Lawyers Filing Lawsuits

DePuy Hip Replacement Lawsuit Update

DePuy ASR lawsuit claims stemming from the 2010 DePuy hip recall continue to move forward in courts throughout the country . According to documents filed in California’s San Francisco Superior Court on April 25th, a Plaintiff who had been seeking an expedited trial of her DePuy hip lawsuit is voluntarily seeking dismissal of the case. (Tilman v. DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc., et al., No. CGC11508806; Calif. Super. Ct., San Francisco).

This news is particularly interesting as when a case is voluntarily dismissed it is often an indication that the parties have come to an agreement. 

DePuy ASR Hip Lawsuits Lawyers Filing DePuy Lawsuits

Court records indicate that there are more than 10,000 DePuy ASR hip lawsuits currently pending in courts throughout the U.S. The DePuy hip recall was announced after the metal-on-metal hip implants were found to be failing in an unacceptably high number of patients. The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) is now reviewing the safety of all metal hip implants, over fears that the devices can shed dangerous amounts of metal debris into patient’s bodies, leading to premature failure of the hips and other serious complications. In January, the agency proposed a new regulation that would make such devices ineligible for the agency’s 510(k) clearance process, which allowed all-metal hips like the ASR hip to gain FDA approval without first undergoing human clinical trials. The FDA also advised doctors to test metal hip implant patients for elevated metal ion levels if they present with symptoms of a failing hip implant.*

The majority of DePuy hip lawsuits have been filed in a multidistrict litigation now underway in U.S. District Court, Northern District of Ohio. Court records indicate that the first trials in that litigation will begin this September. (In re: DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. ASR Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation – MDL 2197) Two lawsuits have already gone to trial at the state level, one of which ended with a California Superior Court jury awarding the Plaintiff more than $8 million in damages. (Kransky v. DePuy, BC456086, California Superior Court, Los Angeles County) However, the jury hearing a second trial in Illinois state court found for DePuy. (Strum v. DePuy, 2011-L-9352, Circuit Court of Cook County) According to an April 16th report from The New York Times, documents submitted as evidence in both of those trials indicated that Johnson & Johnson and its DePuy Orthopaedics unit knew that the ASR was flawed years before the recall was announced, but did not disclose this information to the public or the medical community.**

Earlier this month, DePuy Orthopaedics announced it would end sales of metal-on-metal hip implants, citing recent FDA actions and decreased demand for the products, according to the New York Times. The sales suspension includes a metal-on-metal version of the company’s DePuy Pinnacle hip replacement system, which is also the subject of lawsuits.

If you have a faulty DePuy and have had revision surgery or have been told you need revision surgery call and speak to a hip replacement lawyer today.

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.

Stryker Hip Replacement Lawsuit Urgent Message, Broadspire Claims

Stryker is reaching out to victims of their Rejuvinate and ABG II Hip replacements thru Broadspire Services Inc. Beware and contact a Stryker Hip Replacement lawyer immediately. It is best to have a retained lawyer as these cases will be part of a nationwide  MDL ( multi distrcit litigation ) hip replacement lawsuit just like the DePuy Pinnacle and many others. Stryker says "“Stryker will be reimbursing patients for testing, treatment, revision surgery; if necessary; and other costs relating to this voluntary recall.” But this is vague and unclear and by accepting this you may lose your oppoertunity for a settlement once these are negotiated by Stryker lawyers. Stryker is not on your side.

Stryker Broadspire Contacts For Medical Expenses

You may have recently received a Stryker letter from a doctor informing you that Broadspire Services, Inc. had been retained to handle claims for patient expenses related to the Stryker Rejuvenate recall. According to information on Stryker’s website, “Stryker will be reimbursing patients for testing, treatment, revision surgery, if necessary, and other costs relating to this voluntary recall.” Stryker has also directed doctors to inform their patients that Broadspire would be working directly with patients on their claims, and to contact Stryker for more information. You should keep in mind that any information you disclose during the Stryker Broadspire claims process, or to a Broadspire representative, could dramatically effect  your Stryker hip recall lawsuit settlement.  You should speak to a Stryker  lawyer before you contact Broadspire, and especially before you agree to or sign anything. This is extremely important.

Many seniors do not understand the process and are easily coerced. They are vulnerable and concerned about medical care. You should speak to an experienced Stryker Hip Replacement lawyer.
