Gynecare Power Morcellator Lawyers Filing Lawsuits

Johnson & Johnson’s Ethicon is facing  a product liability lawsuits filed by  women diagnosed with leimoyosarcoma following a laparoscopic hysterectomy.  New studies show that the company’s Gynecare power morcellators can cause  hidden uterine cancer to be spread throughout the body.

A complaint  was filed  indicating that a female  victim  now must take oral chemotherapy to keep leiomyosarcoma cancer  from spreading  by the hysterectomy power Morcellator  from killing her.

The manufacturer failed to adequately disclose the risk of cancer following laparoscopic hysterectomy morcellation, as the device may take hidden sarcomas contained within the uterus and chop up the tissue, causing a rapid dissemination of the aggressive cancer.

Power Morcellator Lawsuit Filed

During her hysterectomy in November 2008, Davis indicates that doctors used a Gynecare morcellator to cut up the uterus through a small incision in the abdomen. However, a biopsy of the removed tissue taken during the surgery was found to contain leiomyosarcoma cancer cells, which doctors were unable to discover or diagnose before the procedure.

As a result of the leiomyosarcoma diagnosis, Davis underwent multiple cycles of chemotherapy, but by April 11, three large masses were detected in her abdomen and pelvis, confirming that the cancer had spread. She underwent additional chemotherapy and now continues to take harsh oral chemotherapy drugs.

Morcellators have become  popular for use during hysterectomy and uterine fibroid removal surgicsl procedures.  It was discovered that the Morcellators have a high risk of spreading aggressive cancer cells that may be hidden within the uterus of some women, which doctors are unable to detect or diagnose before the surgery.

Davis’s complaint is one of a growing number of laparoscopic morcellator cancer lawsuits filed against Ethicon and other manufacturers of devices sold in recent years. Each of the cases raise similar allegations, indicating that manufacturers sold a defective and unreasonably dangerous medical device, failing to warn about the link between uterine fibroid surgery and cancer.

Power Morcellator MDL

All Ethicon  power morcellator lawsuits  have been consolidated  under  District Judge Kathryn H. Vratil in the District of Kansas.

Another medical device harming women is the vaginal mesh. Over 300,000 women have been implanted with a Prolene mesh product for either prolapse or urinary incontinence. Women are suffering and lawsuits have been filed under an MDL or multi district litigation very much like the MDL for the Mirena IUD.

Vaginal Mesh Multi District Lawsuit List Consolidated Under Judge Goodwin in West Virginia

MDL – 2325, IN RE: American Medical Systems, Inc., Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation

MDL – 2326 IN RE: Boston Scientific Corp. Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation

MDL – 2327 IN RE: Ethicon, Inc., Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation

MDL – 2387 IN RE: Coloplast Corp. Pelvic Support Systems Products Liability Litigation

A multi districrt litigation consolidates massive numbers of nationwide lawsuits under one judge.

If you or a loved one: a friend, mother, sister or loved one has been implanted with a vaginal mesh and is having complications and the doctor is telling them that it is not the mesh they should contact us immediately to speak to a medical social worker and vaginal mesh lawyer.

Two vaginal mesh lawsuits have gone to trial. In March, a New Jersey Superior Court jury weighing claims in that litigation’s first Ethicon bellwether trial ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay more than $11 million in compensatory and punitive damages to a recipient of the Gynecare Prolift device. (Gross v. Gynecare Inc., Atl-L-6966-10, Superior Court of Atlantic County, New Jersey) Last July, a jury in California awarded $5.5 million to a woman and her husband in the nation’s first C.R. Bard vaginal mesh trial. (Scott v. Kannappan, S-1500-CV-266034-WDE, Superior Court for Kern County, California)

 

Surgical Devices Harmful To Women, Lawyers For Stryker Hip Replacement

Written by Mirena IUD Helpline on . Posted in Stryker Hip Recall

The FDA reports that these metal on metal and metal component hip implants  put women at a higher risk. Both the Stryker Rejuvinate and ABG II are  dangerous surgical implants that have a greater failure rate and complications for women.

Many articles and reports have been released that discuss hip replacements having a greater failure rate in women.

Hip replacements like Stryker Rejuvinate and ABG II are slightly more likely to fail in women than in men, according to research published Monday in JAMA Internal Medicine.  The research was financed by the Food and Drug Administration. Another report discusses hip resurfacing and states a drawback for women because of the bone weakening that accompanies menopause. Meanwhile, even advocates of resurfacing acknowledge that they have yet to agree on how best to screen women for the procedure.

“We were surprised by the results, as studies suggest that larger heads should have  lower wear and a lower risk of dislocation. However, we have seen an increase in revisions for pain and loosening, particularly in women,” says Alison Smith, a study author and statistician at the University of Bristol in the U.K. Depending on patient age and implant head size, the revision rate for all-metal hips is three to four times higher in women and two to three times higher in men compared with other implants.

The FDA Reports Women At a Higher Risk For Failure

The Food and Drug Administration, along with its safety communication, has included a list of risk factors that can increase a patient’s chances of suffering from metal on metal hip implant complications. Patients who are overweight, female, or physically active are more likely to suffer complications related to these hip replacement systems, and patients who have a sensitivity to certain metals, have kidney failure, have a suppressed immune system, or take corticosteroids are also more at risk.

It seems women are always the victims for these manufacturers that choose profits over warnings.

Hip Replacement Failure More Likely In Women, Study Says Studies on Google News Today

Hip replacements are more likely to fail in women than in men, but the overall risk of implant failure is low–according to a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, JAMA, and that was funded by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Women account for the majority of the more than 400,000 patients who undergo either full or partial hip replacements in the U.S. each year.

“This is the first step in what has to be a much longer-term research strategy to figure out why women have worse experiences,” said Diana Zuckerman, president of the nonprofit National Research Center for Women & Families.

It appears the smaller frame and difference in the curve of the hip and pelvic region accounts for this. Anatomy appears to play a role.  Women tend to have smaller joints and bones than men, and so they tend to need smaller artificial hips. Devices with smaller femoral heads  the ball-shaped part of the ball-and-socket joint in an artificial hip are more likely to dislocate and require a surgical repair.

I wonder why there cannot be two types of replacements, one for women and one for men. But, since they are all being recalled it would just mean more injured women. I am sure there would be extensive marketing to hook women in explaining how their lives would remain active and have a better quality. If you or a wife, mother, girlfriend or female loved one has been injured by these hip implants contact us and we will direct you to a Stryker Hip Replacement lawyer.
