What Is An Inferior Vena Cava Filter? Can I File An IVC Filter Lawsuit?

An inferior vena cava filter, IVC filter  or blood clot capture filter is a small cone-shaped surgical implant   that is implanted in the inferior vena cava just below the kidneys. The filter is designed to capture  a blood clot that has broken loose from one of the deep veins in the legs on its way to the heart and lungs. The goal is to stop the clot from causing a stroke or pulmonary embolism. Placing an IVC  filter in the inferior vena cava (IVC) is a way to prevent pulmonary embolism (PE) from a deep vein thrombosis (DVT). This procedure is currently performed under radiologist  guidance thru the  femoral vein or jugular vein.

Talcum Powder Lawyers For Ovarian Cancer Lawsuits

Did You Use Talc Baby Powder?

Have You Been Diagnosed With Ovarian Cancer?

 

Talcum powder lawyers are filing Talcum Powder lawsuits for women who have gotten ovarian cancer from Talcum Powder.

Think talcum powder and many of us picture chortling babies and smiling mothers changing diapers. Nothing seems more safe and wholesome. And many women use talc products daily, as well, for feminine hygiene and after showering.

Do you remember this famous phrase from Johnson & Johnson’s Shower to Shower  ads?  “Just a sprinkle a day helps keep odor away.” Well that sprinkle is now resulting in  women  filing  lawsuits against Johnson & Johnson claiming  that talc in this and other products led to them developing  ovarian cancer. They claim that the they  should have been warned.

Johnson’s baby powder was one of the company’s household name  products.  It has been sold for more than a 100 years. Now they say it can cause ovarian cancer?  A recent lawsuit awarded $72 million to a woman whose ovarian cancer could be scientifically linked to use of Talc.

But, you say,  I have been using this product for years. Since I was a  teenager or younger and they knew and did not tell us? Yes, in the  last few decades, studies have suggested a possible link between talc and ovarian cancer.

These studies go back, he says, to a British study in 1971. Researchers reported that microscopic analysis of 13 ovarian tumors found talc particles in 10 of them. Several other studies followed in the early 1980s in the United States and Europe and suggested that women who use talc feminine hygiene products may have up to a 35% higher risk of ovarian cancer than women who don’t those products.

The Johnson and Johnson website proclaims  “Few ingredients have demonstrated the same performance, mildness and safety profile as cosmetic talc, which has been used for over 100 years by millions of people around the world.” It goes on to note that talc is used “in a range of other consumer products such as toothpaste, chewing gum, and aspirin.”

Xarelto Extensive Bleeding Lawsuits Increase

Xarelto is a medication which thins the blood. Xarelto has been shown to cause excessive bleeding resulting in serious injury and sometimes death. There is no way to stop the bleeding. Xarelto lawyers are filing lawsuits against the manufacturer for lack of warnings regarding their medication.

In December 2014, the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) centralized all federal Xarelto lawsuits into one court in the Eastern District of Louisiana. At the time, about 50 product liability lawsuits were pending in the court. That number has now increased to about 400.

Not long after the Xarelto MDL was established, Philadelphia consolidated all state Xarelto lawsuits into a mass tort in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas. What started as about 70 cases has now increased to about 200.

Defendants Resisted Formation of Mass Tort

Plaintiffs involved in Xarelto lawsuits claim that Johnson & Johnson subsidiary Janssen Pharmaceuticals and Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals—manufacturers of the drug—should be held liable for damages associated with serious Xarelto side effects, including severe gastrointestinal bleeding and sometimes death.

The defendants initially resisted consolidating cases in Philadelphia, arguing that New Jersey would be a better location, since that’s where the company headquarters are located. They added that most plaintiffs also lived in other states, so it didn’t make sense to bring all cases to Pennsylvania.

The cases all do not involve common issues of fact, either, the defendants argued, since Xarelto is approved for multiple purposes. These include the prevention of blood clots after hip and knee replacement surgery, and the reduction of stroke risk in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation.

The court disagreed, stating the cases did share common issues of fact, that the defendants had strong ties to Pennsylvania, and that the Philadelphia court was an appropriate forum for the mass tort.

The companies expressed their intentions to defend against the claims brought in litigation, maintaining that Xarelto has a favorable benefit-risk profile.

Drug Makers Failed to Warn About Serious Xarelto Side Effects

The FDA approved Xarelto in 2011. Manufacturers immediately marketed it as a more convenient option to warfarin, the leading anti-coagulant for decades, because it came in a once-daily dose and required no dietary restrictions.

Within just a year, however, reports of excessive bleeding began coming in, numbering more than 1,000 by June 30, 2012—at least 65 of those involving the death of the patient. By the end of that year, more than 151 people had died in events related to Xarelto.

Plaintiffs filed lawsuits to recover damages, claiming that the drug makers had failed to provide proper warnings on the labels. Patients were left in the dark, for instance, on the fact that there was no readily available antidote to Xarelto bleeding. While all blood thinners carry some risk of bleeding, patients taking warfarin can have that bleeding stopped with vitamin K injections. There is no such solution for patients on Xarelto, making bleeding events much more serious and potentially deadly.

State and Federal Courts to Coordinate Pre-Trial Proceedings

Both parties plan to coordinate the mass tort with the Xarelto MDL. In a recent case management conference, for instance, held in April 2015, the MDL court noted that five days before each future status conference, the defendants are to identify and share any Xarelto lawsuits pending in state courts, to facilitate coordination.

Vaginal mesh Is a Global Pandemic, Vaginal Mesh lawyer

"Transvaginal Mesh Caused Five Years of Hell for Me, My Husband, My Kids"
February 8, 2012, 10:30:00AM. By Jane Mundy  Email to a friendEmail

    Sydney, NS: Leslie was 40 years old in 2007 when she had transvaginal mesh—a TVT sling—implanted. Since that time, she has had at least six MRIs and about a dozen CAT Scans. She has been in and out of the hospital on numerous occasions—including the renal unit for three months—and she couldn't have sex with her husband until last October. "Both my husband and I want to warn women about these transvaginal mesh devices," she says. "I don't think many people realize the devastation this mesh can create."

    "Transvaginal Mesh Caused Five Years of Hell for Me, My Husband, My Kids"Neither Leslie (not her real name) nor her doctor had any idea of the complications associated with TVT slings and transvaginal mesh devices. It wasn't until a year after Leslie's initial surgery when the FDA issued a safety alert, even though manufacturers like American Medical Systems and Bard, the maker of Avaulta, had received more than 1,000 complaints since 2005. Leslie knew her gynecologist was using the TVT but she knew nothing about it, other than that it would "stabilize and hold her bladder," according to her doctor.

    Within just a few weeks of surgery, Leslie had severe pain in her groin and a nasty urinary tract infection. Then she got lower back pain. Then it got a whole lot worse.

    "My blood pressure soared from 120/90 to 210/160 in no time at all, for no apparent reason," says Leslie. "Then I got hyper-pigmentation (not a rash) all over my face, neck and arms. A dermatologist told me it was systemic: something inside me was causing it but he had no idea what it could be. Then my face and ears would flush to beet red and my blood pressure would get so high I had respiratory problems. I couldn't breathe and my heart rate would go as high as 150 bpm when I was sitting down.

    "I went to ER so many times and they chalked it up to the urinary tract infection. Next up, I got edema and within three years I gained about 50 pounds (I am not a big eater and I don't eat junk food—in fact I was very athletic prior to the TVT surgery). My abdomen became so swollen it looked like I was pregnant. My voice became hoarse and then I got esophagus problems; I could never understand where this was coming from. Then I was sent to an ear, nose and throat doctor. Next came blurred vision and I lost my peripheral vision. An optometrist determined it was so bad I couldn't drive anymore. I lost my hearing in my left ear…

    "My husband and I were beside ourselves."

    So what does this all have to do with Leslie's transvaginal mesh surgery? It all links to her immune system. Unfortunately, it took a few years to figure that out. Neither Leslie nor the litany of specialists she saw clued in that the mesh erosion, which almost killed her, was the cause of so much pain, not to mention frustration and financial ruin.

    By December, Leslie's immune system was so poor that her family physician ordered a barium enema. The technician found a large polyp in her colon and she had a colonoscopy right away. They found four massive polyps—but what caused them? Leslie was told that large polyps usually turn into cancer, but they were benign—and that was the only good news she had, right up until the end of 2011.

    "I got so sick that and I couldn't walk up or down my stairs," says Leslie. "I couldn't do the laundry, couldn't do the dishes. I knew I was in serious trouble when I got half way up the stairs and my chest was so tight I couldn't breathe. I tried yelling to my 10-year-old to help me to bed. My husband raced home and I felt a bit better. The next morning I had to go for another barium swallow. This time the technician sent me to ER after he took my blood pressure: it was 240/150, but my respiratory rate was low. My kidneys were not working and no one could understand what was going on.

Vaginal Mesh lawyers are filing lawsuits for Vaginal mesh injury. This appears to be a global issue going all the way to sidney Australia.

The vaginal mesh lawsuits in the U.S.A are starting and you must get a vaginal mesh lawyer to protect your legal rights immediately.  

"An ambulance raced me to the renal unit of Sydney Hospital, where I stayed for three months. Everything was going wrong. At one time my cortisol levels were so high everyone thought I was going to die.

    "My husband and my kids were losing their minds.

    "I had every specialist you could imagine looking at me. They agreed it was systemic and a few doctors knew it was something auto-immune but no one figured it out."

    Leslie was booked for surgery to get cysts removed from her stomach but the surgeon told her she was too sick for surgery and advised that she go home, try to get better and come back in a few months. But when Leslie got home, she almost gave up.

    "Just before I decided to take all the pills on my bedside table, my friend, a nurse, came over and she, along with her neurologist friend, saved my life," explains Leslie, on the verge of tears. "I told her everything and she said, 'It has to do with the TVT surgery,' and insisted that I call a urogynecologist, who specializes in the care of women with pelvic floor dysfunction.

    "By this time we were financially devastated. My husband wasn't working because he was taking care of me, but we had no choice.

    "The urogynecologist did a pelvic exam and right away felt massive erosion. She asked if I had a mesh implanted. Then she did a cystoscopy and determined that the TVT mesh was cutting off the right ureter. Later, she found that the mesh was also cutting off the urethra.

    She said, 'You need surgery, you cannot have a foreign object in an organ.' She said the infection was so bad, 'It is going through your entire system, you need to get it removed now.' That was December 2010.

    "She found the mesh embedded in the urethra but she couldn't remove it. 'This is way above my skill level, I cannot do it,' she told me. But I had some relief from this surgery and I was referred to another specialist, a reconstructive urologist.

    "I had yet another surgery in October 2011. He said the mesh was 'In every place it shouldn't be,' eroded in my colon, bladder, pelvic floor. He said it was one of the biggest surgeries he had ever done.

    "Now I feel infection-free for the first time in five years, and I don't have to take anymore antibiotics. But I'm not out of the woods yet.

    "The reconstructive urologist noticed something on my urethra and he believes it is a piece of mesh. So I have to go back in three weeks. My bladder still isn't right; it takes a long time to empty and I can't hold my urine, I have no muscle left in my bladder. So I have to undergo yet another surgery.

    "I started to feel better and had enough energy to research transvaginal mesh online. I looked for FDA warnings and found so many women going through these problems. And I am furious.

    "My husband and I also found the TVM attorney online. Right now our fight is to get me better and my attorney can go after the TVT and TVM manufacturer. My attorney has all my medical records including the lot number of the TVT sling.

    "My kids and husband have lost so much because of this. Everyone needs to know that these companies are using us as guinea pigs. When I found out about the 501(k), how these medical device makers can put products on the market without clinical trials, I cried my heart out. How could the FDA allow this?

    "My attorney said it is OK for me to talk about this. I just want people to know the hell I have gone through; I want this taken off the market, forever."
