What is  The 3T Heater-Cooler System?

The 3T heater-cooler units are used during surgery to control  body temperature.  They  have water tanks that move temperature-controlled water to heat exchangers or blankets, which  cool or warm  the recipients body.

The water  in the 3T systems can become contaminated resulting  in bacteria being released into the air through the device’s exhaust vent. This bacteria can infect a patient. It can take  several years between the time a patient is exposed to the bacteria and an infection is diagnosed.

  • endocarditis,
  • surgical site infection,
  • abscess, bacteremia,

Patients may also require the need for revision surgery.

Metronic Infuse Bone Graft Lawyers Filing lawsuits For Injury Nationwide

Medtronic’s Infuse Bone Graft Lawyers filing lawsuits for severe debilitating injury from the Metronic Infuse Bone Graft
A recent FDA investigation of Medtronic’s Infuse Bone Graft discovered that the product may cause cancer infection, ectopic bone growth, cyst formation, difficulty breathing, nerve damage, and death when the product is used in the neck and cervical spine. Infuse is not FDA-approved for use in the neck and cervical spine, but Medtronic illegally spent millions of dollars to encourage these dangerous off-label uses and to cover up study results showing the severe injuries caused by Infuse.

Infuse Bone Graft is a liquid form of recombinant bone morphogenic protein that is housed in a small cage-like structure that is implanted in the spine where it facilitates bone growth to fill gaps between vertebrae and replace damaged disks. Infuse is FDA-approved for use only in the lumbar spine and has been proven to be extremely dangerous when it is used in other parts of the body, specifically the neck and cervical spine. When Infuse is used in the neck or cervical spine, it tends to promote unintended bone growth that leads to significant problems such as swelling of the neck, tightening of the airways, and difficulty swallowing, breathing, and speaking.

Despite knowledge of the risks associated with off-label uses of Infuse, Medtronic paid doctors to cover up and discredit unfavorable study results. Medtronic is now under investigation by the FDA for its illegal promotion of Infuse as safe and effective when used in the neck and cervical spine. Metronic is also accused of using the Bone Graft for label use.

Vaginal mesh Lawyers Filing Lawsuits for Vaginal mesh MDL to Commence Soon

The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has recently finished a review of the reports submitted by patients and providers and the most current scientific literature concerning transvaginal mesh surgery.   The results of the review showed that currently there is no evidence which supports the use of transvaginal mesh in transvaginal organ prolapse surgery versus the traditional non-mesh methods.   One of the major factors in coming to this conclusion is that there is an increased risk of complications when undergoing such repair procedures.

The FDA says in a recent alert that “Serious complications associated with surgical mesh for POP procedures and stress urinary incontinence (SUI) is not rare.”The FDA continues on by saying, “Furthermore, it is not clear that transvaginal POP repair with mesh is more effective than traditional non-mesh repair in all patients with POP and it may expose patients to greater risk.” 

The thousands of transvaginal mesh cases which the FDA reviewed were dated from 1996 through 2010, and the results that the FDA found that those patients who have had transvaginal pelvic organ prolapse repair with mesh are exposed to additional risks compared with those who have repair with stitches alone.  The results of the review also showed that, while the mesh did often times correct the anatomy; there was no greater clinical benefit over non-mesh surgery.  There were at least 100,000 pelvic organ prolapse repairs done in 2010 alone, and almost 75,000 of them were transvaginal procedures, according to statistics given by the FDA. According to the advice given by the FDA, doctors should be able to recognize that in many cases, pelvic organ prolapse can be treated without the use of mesh. The FDA also warned clinicians that mesh implants are permanent, and future repairs may be challenging, putting patients at risk for additional complications and surgeries.  Mesh that is placed abdominally, or used to treat SUI are not covered in the current FDA warning.

There has been, however a recent update on this issue:   “Based on assessment of Medical Device Reports (adverse event reports) submitted to the FDA, evaluation of the published literature, and the September 2011 Obstetrics-Gynecology Devices Panel meeting, the FDA is considering the recommendation that urogynecologic surgical mesh used for transvaginal repair of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) be reclassified from Class II to Class III.”
