What is Power Morcellator?
Power morcellators are medical devices used during minimally invasive laparoscopic hysterectomy and fibroid removal procedures. The device grinds up the uterus and uterine fibroids, allowing the easy removal of the tissues through a small incision in the abdomen.
Morcellator use has decreased over the past year, because of the risk that the devices may cause the spread of aggressive uterine cancers that were undiagnosed in the uterus.
We are investigating Uterine cancer spread from the use of the following major morcellator device manufacturers:
Johnson and Johnson Ethicon
In July of 2014, the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) reported that the rate of undetected uterine cancer among women who underwent a hysterectomy involving a power morcellator could be as high as 27 out of every 10,000 procedures, or 1 in 370.
This shocking data demonstrates the catastrophic dangers that women who have undergone minimally invasive hysterectomy procedures involving power morcellators were exposed to.
There are about 1,200 Baby Powder lawsuits and Shower-to-Shower body powder lawsuits pending against J&J, with similar allegations that the company failed to warn that the talcum-based powders may increase the risk of ovarian cancer when applied to the female genitals.
According to medical experts, pathological evidence reveals that the talc may migrate through the vagina and into the fallopian tubes, uterus and ovaries, causing inflammation leading ovarian cancers. Microscopic evidence of talc particulate infiltration is found in the ovaries of affected women.
Many hip and knee surgery patients develop bacterial infections of their implants, leading to painful re-do surgeries, long term antibiotic use and in severe cases amputation because of overwhelming infection.
There are many causes for this, including patient and surgical factors and some experts speculate that it may be related to the bacteria in the operative room and hospital, since it is impossible to make the surgical room and hospital completely free of bacteria.
Now, a new source of surgical infections may be a likely culprit. 3M and their Arizant Healthcare subsidiary are exposed to personal injury and product liability lawsuits over hip and knee replacement infections caused by Bair Hugger warming blankets.
What is the Bair Hugger warming blanket?
The Bair Hugger has been used in many orthopedic joint replacement procedures over the past 30 years, including hip and knee replacement surgery. The device blows hot air onto the patient’s body, the forced air warming (FAW) to help control the patient’s body temperature during surgery.Read more

Xarelto Brain Hemorrhage and GI Bleeding Lawsuits
Taking Xarelto? Are you playing Russian Roulette with a potentially lethal drug? Taking your life into your hands should not come down to a flip of the coin.
There is no antidote or treatment to reverse the bleeding side effects of Xarelto. Xarelto, the new blood thinner does not have a “reversing agent” that allows doctors to stop the bleeding.
Xarelto is a new generation anticoagulant, known as “direct thrombin inhibitors,” which are used to reduce the risk of blood clots, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism and embolic strokes.
Dr Shezad Malik Law Firm is currently investigating and accepting Xarelto Uncontrollable Bleeding, Brain Hemorrhage and Gastro-Intestinal Bleeding cases.Zofran Heart, Cleft Lip and Palate Birth Defects Under Investigation

Johnson & Johnson is exposed to more than 30,000 Ethicon Gynecare mesh lawsuits in the federal court system, which have been centralized as part of a multidistrict litigation (MDL) before U.S. District Judge Goodwin in the Southern District of West Virginia.
Transvaginal mesh was used for surgical treatment of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and female stress urinary incontinence (SUI). The women allege that significant design defects led the mesh to erode through the vagina, causing painful injuries and incontinence.
According to the latest case list released on March 15, 2016 by the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML), there are at least 13,000 Bard Avaulta mesh, 20,078 Boston Scientific mesh, 31,000 Ethicon mesh, 20,000 American Medical Systems (AMS) mesh, 2,365 Coloplast mesh, 466 Cook Medical mesh and 133 Neomedic mesh lawsuits.
