Vaginal Mesh- History of the Problem

Between the years of 2005 and 2010, nearly 4,000 vaginal mesh injuries have been reported to the Food and Drug Administration.  In a 2010 article in the journal Obstetrics & Gynecology, researchers stated that they had to cease a vaginal mesh clinical trial early because of the higher-than-expected number of complications and injuries.  The trial was stopped when it was discovered that more than 15 percent of women who were implanted with vaginal mesh suffered vaginal mesh erosion within only three months of implantation.  As a result of numerous negative reports, the FDA issued a vaginal mesh warning to patients and physicians in 2011, cautioning that the risks of using vaginal mesh are so severe that alternative treatments should be considered.  It is now widely accepted that, in most cases, pelvic organ prolapsed can be treated without the use of vaginal mesh

US Senators Demand More FDA Oversight On Depuy Hip Replacement

 

by Brian Devine on December 18, 2011

Following the massive DePuy hip replacement recall, Senators Charles Grassley (R-Iowa), Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) and Herb Kohl (D-Wis.) have introduced legislation to help protect patients from being exposed to dangerous medical devices and to ensure that recalls are conducted promptly when a company learns that a device is defective.

This bipartisan bill authorizes the FDA to require post-market clinical studies for medical devices such as hip implants, that could have serious safety risks.  The bill also gives the FDA the ability to require manufacturers to conduct safety studies after a device is approved through the expedited 510(k) process, the regulatory loophole that allowed the DePuy ASR to be sold in the United States.

“This reform legislation should be part of the reauthorization of the medical device user fee law next year,” Grassley said. “The reforms incorporate well-founded recommendations from the Government Accountability Office and reflect the value of having a robust post-market surveillance operation in the FDA. Important information can be learned about product safety after a device is on the market, and when there are problems, the sooner the response, the better.”

“Unsafe medical devices pose severe dangers to patients and impede approval of new, safe devices – causing significant costs to our economy as well as health,” said Blumenthal. “This bill will help protect people from dangerous unsafe medical devices by demanding more consumer safeguards, improving recall management, avoiding costly recalls, and preventing irreversible injury to patients. By removing unsafe devices from the market more quickly and efficiently, we’re preserving a faster approval track for safe and effective products to reach patients.”

“Faulty medical devices, especially those implanted in the body, can have disastrous health impacts on patients,” Kohl said. “This legislation will help ensure that FDA can act quickly and decisively when there’s a problem, and that the drive toward getting new technologies to market won’t come at the risk of patient safety.”

The three Senators also sent investigative letters to five companies, including Johnson & Johnson / DePuy.  The Senators have requested details about DePuy’s post-market surveilance of the ASR implant, and how and when it decided to recall the ASR from the market. The letter said:

    As the Special Committee on Aging’s recent oversight hearing detailed, effective post-marketing surveillance practices allow companies to recognize problems with medical devices in a timely fashion, preventing expensive recalls later, and can also save lives and prevent unnecessary suffering.

DePuy Hip Replacement System Recall

In February 2011, the Food and Drug Administration stated that there are “unique risks” for “metal-on-metal” artificial hips because tiny metal ions can wear off and damage nearby tissue. Patients who received all metal implants should be aware of potential symptoms which may occur after surgery and indicate that their device is not functioning properly.

Complications Associated with the depuy Hip Replacements Include:

  • Pain in the groin, hip or leg
  • Swelling at or near the hip joint
  • A limp or change in walking ability
  • Continued pain
  • The need for a second surgery
  • The need for tests and medical monitoring on hip replacements that have yet to go bad
  • Costly medical bills
  • Loss of enjoyment of certain activities
  • Pain
  • Popping
  • Grinding
  • Metal sensitivity
  • Loosening of the prosthesis
  • Infection
  • Dislocation
  • Bone fracture
  • High metal ions levels in their bloodstreams

 

Medical journals in different countries say that metal-on-metal hip replacement implants are reputed to be one of the best options when it comes to diseased hips. In fact, the surgery itself is said to be one of the most common medical procedures with around 90% success rate. However, things may have taken a different turn because "Democrats and Republicans are now examining metal-based hip replacement implant's safety".

In some cases, the DePuy hip system implant had failed after just a few years. The Food and Drug Administration has received over 300 complaints from people who have been implanted with the ASR DePuy hip implant since 2008. Patients have come forward to complain of loose DePuy ASR Acetabular Cups, which required revision surgery. The ASR hip cup revision reports mention instances of loosening, pseudotumour and metallosis.

DePuy hip complications may require hip revision surgery

Patients who experience the most serious DePuy hip complications – loosening of the implant, hip bone fracture, and hip implant dislocation – will have to undergo hip revision surgery, a costly replacement procedure that is more complicated and painful than the original surgery.

Even those allowed to keep their implant won’t necessarily be free of DePuy hip complications. Some DePuy hip complications simply aren’t catastrophic enough to require immediate revision. All DePuy hip recipients, for example, are at risk of developing metallosis, specifically cobalt and chromium poisoning – a proven DePuy hip complication linked to tumors and cancer.  Metallosis, also called metal poisoning, can cause damage extensive enough to make revision surgery impossible.

A recent article in the New York Times quotes Dr. Stephen Graves, the director of an implant database in Australia (the ASR has been implanted in patients worldwide), who said that the DePuy ASR hip implant had been failing early at a significantly higher rate than that of some of its competitors' hip implants.

DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. has recalled all of its ASR XL Acetabular Hip Systems and ASR Hip Resurfacing Systems. These metal on metal prosthetic systems have been in use since 2003. However, even before their product was recalled, lawsuits have alleged that DePuy manufactured a defective product and had failed to properly warn patients and doctors of all the problems with the implant.

Numerous DePuy ASR patients have complained about these now-recalled products since 2008. However it wasn't until August 24, 2010, DePuy issued a recall of the hip implants. Approximately 93,000 devices have been implanted worldwide, according to DePuy and there is expected to be many lawsuits from the patients of these defective devices and the negligence shown by DePuy in designing, manufacturing and selling these devices.
What Should You Do Next

If you have any of the complications listed above form a failed Depuy Hip Replacement the first order of business is to see your doctor to consider revision surgery,  The you must get a lawyer to protect your legal rights and demand justice for your pain and suffering.

France advises 30,000 to have breast implants removed

France's health ministry Friday advised 30,000 women with breast implants made by French firm PIP to have them removed, saying that while there is no proven cancer risk the prostheses could rupture.

The government stressed there was no urgency but the advice will add to the concern of tens of thousands of other women around the world who have the same implants made from industrial rather than medical quality silicone.

Global police agency Interpol, meanwhile, issued a "red notice" seeking the arrest of Frenchman Jean-Claude Mas, the founder of PIP (Poly Implant Prosthese).

Women with PIP implants "do not have a higher risk of cancer than women who have implants manufactured by other firms," a health ministry statement said, but there were "well-established risks of ruptures."

French Health Minister Xavier Bertrand called for their removal as a "precautionary measure".

State-supported medical insurance will pay for the implants' removal, but only women who received the implants as part of reconstructive surgery, rather than for aesthetic reasons, will have new implants paid for.

The total cost for social security is estimated at around 60 million euros ($78 million).

The French government advised women with PIP implants to contact their doctor and "a precautionary removal will be offered, even without clinical signs of deterioration of the implant."

Any woman who declines the removal must have a breast scan every six months, the ministry added.

The now-bankrupt PIP was shut down and its products banned in April last year after it was revealed to have been using non-authorised silicone gel that caused abnormally high implant rupture rates.

Facing financial difficulties, the company, once the world's third-largest producer of silicone implants, had replaced the medical-grade silicone in its implants with industrial-strength material.

Documents obtained by AFP showed that tens of thousands of women in more than 65 countries, mainly in South America and western Europe, received implants produced by PIP.

In Britain, where 42,000 women have PIP implants, authorities said the prostheses posed no notable risk, while elsewhere in Europe authorities called for the implants to be dealt with on a case-by-case basis.

"While we respect the French government's decision, no other country is taking similar steps because we currently have no evidence to support it," said Britain's Chief Medical Officer Sally Davies.

Germany's BFARM health agency recommended women be evaluated by doctors, while only Belgium echoed the call for preventive removals.

"We've discussed the possibility of a cancer risk a lot recently and there's no proof," BFARM agency spokesman Maik Pommer said, with 19 cases of ruptured implants in Germany since 2004.

Switzerland's health agency said it did not recommend removal of the implants for some 280 Swiss women concerned.

"Every removal is an operation that involves risks," said Swissmedic spokesman Daniel Luethi. "According to our figures, the risk of a secondary effect from these implants is less than one percent."

Spain and Finland recommended women get checkups, and Austrian Health Minister Alois Stoeger said health agency AGES had "guaranteed that doctors who used these implants have contacted their patients and checked their state of health".

In Brazil, where 25,000 women had PIP implants, the country's National Health Surveillance Agency (ANVISA) "has not yet made a recommendation," a spokesman told AFP.

But Belgium's Drugs and Health Products Agency said women should discuss the preventive removal of their implants with their surgeons, "even without clinical signs of deterioration".

Senior French health ministry official Jean-Yves Grall denied the government was being excessively cautious, insisting the recommendation was justified by a five-percent rupture rate.

Prosecutors in Marseille, near PIP's home base of Seyne-sur-Mer, have received more than 2,000 complaints from Frenchwomen who received the implants, and have opened a criminal investigation into the firm.

Interpol lists Mas on its website as being sought in Costa Rica for offences concerning "life and health".

Yves Haddad, a lawyer for the 72-year-old, told AFP his client was prepared to face prosecution, adding: "For the moment there is no evidence that the product can cause illness."

According to PIP's 2010 bankruptcy filing in the French city of Toulon, it had exported 84 percent of its annual production of 100,000 implants.

Between 2007 and 2009, 50 to 58 percent of its exports went to South American countries including Venezuela, Brazil, Colombia and Argentina, the filing showed.

In the same period, 27 to 28 percent of exports went to western European nations including Britain, Spain, Italy and Germany.

Your Vaginal Mesh Lawyer, New Prolapse Mesh Guidelines

Updated Guidance for Use of Vaginal Mesh for POP
By Jamie L. Habib | December 23, 2011

In further response to the Safety Communication issued by the FDA in July 2011 regarding the use of vaginal mesh, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (The College) and the American Urogynecologic Society (AUGS) jointly state that the use of vaginal placement of synthetic mesh for the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) should be reserved for high-risk women for whom the benefits may outweigh the risks.1 The College and the AUGS also state that there is an urgent need for development of a national registry to track outcomes for all current and future patients who receive vaginal mesh implants.

The specific recommendations of The College and AUGS for use of vaginal mesh include the following1:

 

• Continued audit and review of outcomes and the creation of a surveillance registry for all current and future vaginal mesh implants.

• Outcome reporting for prolapsed surgical techniques defining success, complications, and total reoperation rates.

• Surgeon training for vaginal mesh placement specific to each device, including surgical experience with reconstructive surgery and thorough understanding of pelvic anatomy

• Rigorous comparative effectiveness trials of synthetic mesh and native tissue repair and long-term follow-up.

•Patient counseling about alternative native tissue repairs and the permanent nature of synthetic mesh, as well as discussion of the risks, benefits, and alternatives to the procedure.

• Limiting use of POP vaginal mesh repair to high-risk women for whom the benefit may justify the risk.

• Adoption of new mesh products and devices only with clinical long-term data demonstrating equal or improved safety and efficacy compared with existing products and devices.

Lawyers for Surgical Errors

Lawyers for surgical errors assist individuals injured or wrongful death by surgical medical negligence. If you or a loved one has been severly injured due to a surgical error you have a right to compensation. Although all surgeries are inherently risky, there are instances when there is malpractice. Even with competent, expert care, the possibility exists for negative reactions to anesthesia, and post-surgery infection. However, most patients do not readily anticipate surgical mistakes and errors. Anyone placing their lives in the hands of a doctor expects that that physician will provide expert and competent medical care, including the ability to manage the entire surgical team and hospital staff. Unfortunately, surgical errors are much more common than one might anticipate. Some surgical errors can be easily corrected others unfortunately, can result in serious injury or even death. A Lawyer for surgical errors and surgical medical negligence should be contacted if you have been injured or a loved one has been killded due to surgical medical negligence.

Call  Lawyers For Surgical Errors  at 800 733-5342.

Many surgical errors are not the result of a surgical complication. Instead, they are caused by negligent deviations from the prevailing professional standard of care. The potential errors include:

  • Failure to remove foreign objects such as sponges or surgical instruments from the patient’s body, resulting in infection or even death.
  • Anesthesia errors resulting in permanent brain damage, stroke, heart attack and death.
  • Failure to obtain the patient's prior informed consent with respect to a specific surgical procedure.
  • Perforation of the bowel.
  • , (bariatric surgery or stomach stapling) resulting in blood clots, infection or heart attack.
  • Severing a nerve.
  • Failure to monitor for sepsis (a blood infection) during and after surgery.
  • Penetration of eye tissue (such as the lens or cornea) during eye surgery.
  • Severing the ureter during a hysterectomy.
  • Back surgery errors resulting in permanent spinal cord injury.
  • Wrong site surgery (operation on the wrong area of the patient or operation on the wrong patient altogether).
  • Failure to use sterile equipment.
  • Damage or puncture of nearby organs.

Some surgical mistakes can be traced to poor pre-operative care and planning. A doctor must thoroughly analyze a patient’s medical history, medication and lifestyle choices prior to determining what surgical course, if any, should be taken. A surgeon must make sure that the procedure is as safe as possible by extensively monitoring the surgical team. This all requires that the surgeon and his or her team be experienced and competent enough to mitigate all risks of surgical error.
