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.

End-stage renal disease (ESRD): total and permanent kidney failure. When the kidneys fail, the body retains fl uid. Harmful wastes build up. A person with ESRD needs treatment to replace the work of the failed kidneys.

Acute kidney injury (AKI): sudden, temporary, and sometimes fatal loss of kidney function

incidence: the number of new cases of a disease in a given time period

prevalence: the number of existing cases of a disease at a given point in time


Chronic Kidney Disease, Dialysis and GranuFlo. GranuFlo is a Threat to Seniors

  •     The incidence of CKD is increasing most rapidly in people ages 65 and older.
  •     The incidence of recognized CKD in people ages 65 and older more than doubled between 2000 and 2008.
  •     The incidence of recognized CKD among 20- to 64-year-olds is less than 0.5 percent.

CKD Prevalence, GranuFlo Threat in 60 and Over Population

    The prevalence of CKD is growing most rapidly in people ages 60 and older.
    Between the 1988–1994 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) study and the 2003–2006 NHANES study, the prevalence of CKD in people ages 60 and older jumped from 18.8 to 24.5 percent.
    During that same period, the prevalence of CKD in people between the ages of 20 and 39 stayed consistently below 0.5 percent.

FDA Issues Class 1 Recall of GranuFlo

In late March of 2012, the FDA became aware of the apparent link between GranuFlo and cardiac arrest, according to the New York Times. In response to information about this threat to dialysis patients, which GranuFlo producer Fresenius had not made public, the FDA issued a Safety Communication warning about the dangers of alkali dosing errors for products like GranuFlo and NaturaLyte in hemodialysis patients.

In June, the FDA then issued a Class 1 recall of GranuFlo. This is the most serious class of recall, issued when the FDA deems there to be "a situation in which there is a reasonable probability that the use of or exposure to a violative product will cause serious adverse health consequences or death." The FDA described the reason for the recall thus:

    The manufacturer is cautioning clinicians to be aware of the concentration of acetate or sodium diacetate (acetic acid plus acetate) contained in Fresenius' Naturalyte Liquid and Granuflo Dry Acid Concentrate. Inappropriate prescription of these products can lead to a high serum bicarbonate level in patients undergoing hemodialysis. This may contribute to metabolic alkalosis, which is a significant risk factor associated with low blood pressure, hypokalemia, hypoxemia, hypercapnia and cardiac arrhythmia, which, if not appropriately treated, may culminate in cardiopulmonary arrest. This product may cause serious adverse health consequences, including death.
