Stryker Knee Replacement RecallsIn April 2013, the FDA issued a Class I recall of Stryker’s ShapeMatch Cutting Guide. The Guides help to position knee replacement components and guide the marking of the patient’s bone prior to cutting. In November 2012, Stryker acknowledged manufacturing defects in the ShapeMatch Cutting Guide and instructed surgeons to discontinue use. This knee replacement recall was because the software has a defect that causes wider cutting ranges. As a result, knee replacement patients may experience severe complications such as instability of the joint, fracture, chronic pain, and mobility limitations. Patients may also require the need for revision surgery.

Lawyers Filing Ovarian Cancer Lawsuits For Baby Powder
Talcum Powder Ovarian Cancer Lawsuits Do You Want To File A Baby Powder Cancer Lawsuit?Studies show that talcum-based powder can cause ovarian cancer in women who have used it for genital/perineal hygiene. Studies dating back to 1982 have consistently linked prolonged talc-based baby and body powder usage with ovarian cancer. The talc particles moves through the female reproductive system and settles in the ovaries. These particles may remain in the ovaries for many years, creating inflammation resulting in the development and proliferation of cancer cells. Studies HAVE Linked Ovarian Cancer to Talc-Based Baby/Body Powder The pathology reports and tissue samples that were used to diagnose the ovarian cancer can now be examined to determine whether your ovarian tissues contain talc particles. Talc particles can be found in the pelvic lymph nodes, ovaries, and fallopian tubes and take many years to disintegrate and exit the body.

Did The Manufacturers Of The Transvaginal Mesh And Bladder Sling Give Sufficient Warning?
Boston Vaginal Mesh Lawyers say no in the thousands of transvaginal mesh and bladder sling claims that have been filed in the Pelvic Mesh Repair Lawsuits MDL'Ls.
According to transvaginal mesh lawyers accross the country who are filing vaginal mesh and bladder sling lawsuits the warning was insufficient. For a warning to be sufficient, a transvaginal mesh warning should appropriately signal danger while simultaneously providing the information in order to use the product appropriately. A pharmaceutical or medical device manufacturer doesn’t necessarily have to discuss matters that are basic medical knowledge. They are not in a position to control the individual practices of doctors in every single medical community.
Will The Device Warnings The Transvaginal meshmanufacturers provided to the doctor relieve them of their duty to warn the patient.
What are some ways that warnings can become inadequate? Some variables that courts will consider include: If they are overly broad or too generic, contradictory statements made in the inserts, actions by the sales representatives, and presenting the warning in a way that makes it unlikely to be read. Remember, every case is different. In some cases, a doctor might not even bother to read the warnings. In other cases, the possibility of an adverse reaction is too small to even impact the doctor’s decision. There have even been cases where a doctor has stated that even if he were given new information, he would have still followed through with his initial decision.
What other possible legal theories being explored? If a company supplies product related information to the public that amounts to an express warranty, they can be held liable for breach of warranty if the plaintiff can successfully prove that the information was false.
We will be watching the pelvic mesh repair proceedings and waiting to see how they play out.

The vaginal mesh lawsuits may well be one of the largest ligigations of a hrmful device hurting women we have seen to date.
If is currently thought that over 300,000 women are implanted with various vaginal mesh devices for uterus, bladder and bowel prolapse as well as urinary incontinence. The mesh has caused very serious complications and the numbers of filings continue to grow.
Transvaginal mesh side effects are so common, in fact, that hundreds of lawsuits have been filed by women seeking compensation for their pain and suffering, medical bills, and lost wages due to vaginal mesh complications. The number of vaginal mesh lawsuits being filed is so large that five MDLs have been created to quickly and effectively deal with them. Four vaginal mesh MDLs have been centralized in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia, while a fifth MDL has been created in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Georgia.
There are a number of vaginal mesh MDL's currently
Vaginal mesh lawyers representing Plaintiffs argue that even with five vaginal mesh lawsuit MDLs, there is still a need to create a sixth MDL. Federal judges will meet later this month to hear oral arguments regarding whether a new vaginal mesh lawsuit MDL should be created in West Virginia, where U.S. District Judge Joseph R. Goodwin is overseeing five transvaginal mesh MDLs.
Discovery to begin for vaginal mesh lawsuits
Unsurprisingly, discovery is the process of “discovering” information or evidence to support a case. For the vaginal mesh multidistrict litigation, the pretrial discovery process will include interrogatories (fact-finding questionnaires), depositions, and the collection of other paperwork and information to support the plaintiffs’ cases. Judge Goodwin’s issuance of this order is an important step to moving forward with the MDL’s, as it signals the next step toward the first transvaginal mesh lawsuit trials.
The multi district litigation department of Class Action Lawyer Network has authorized an expanded division to continue to help women file vaginal mesh lawsuits for the pain and suffering they have undegone from these failed mesh devices.
This division is headed up by a female medical social worker who is is felt is best equipped to deal with women in crisis from the vaginal mesh. Women need support as well as help finding a doctor and is felt this is best handled by our social work team.
