Defective Drugs & Medical Devices Under Investigation
Bard PowerPort Failure Lawsuits
Bard PowerPort Failure lawsuits are being filed against Bard alleging that the implantable intravenous ports have serious design defects that cause the devices to break apart and migrate, leading to catastrophic life-threatening injuries, including infections, and blood clots among other injuries. The FDA approved the first Bard PowerPort device in 2000.
What is the Bard PowerPort device?
The Bard PowerPort is a specific brand and type of implantable port device, which is commonly used in medical treatments requiring frequent access to the venous system for the delivery of medications, chemotherapy, blood products, and for the withdrawal of blood samples. The Bard PowerPort is manufactured by C.R. Bard, Inc. (now part of Becton, Dickinson and Company).
Tepezza Hearing Loss
Tepezza, is also known as teprotumumab, is the first FDA-approved drug for treating thyroid eye disease, but according to patients, it causes serious hearing loss.
Tepezza is made by an Irish company called Horizon Therapeutics, based in Dublin, Ireland. According to some patients who have taken Tepezza, they have reported various hearing problems, including increased sensitivity to sound, persistent ringing in the ears, known as tinnitus, temporary and permanent hearing loss, and much more.
Metal on Metal Hips
The doctors and hip manufacturers hailed metal-on-metal (MoM) hip implants as a revolutionary development for patients requiring hip replacements. However, over the past few years, several serious concerns arose about these implants, leading to numerous lawsuits against the manufacturers. Metal on Metal hip implants fail prematurely at a high rate and may need revision surgery to correct.
We are currently handling the following MoM hip implants made by the following manufacturers.
Zimmer M/L Taper Hip, M/L Taper Hip with Kinectiv Technology, and VerSys Femoral Head hip implants
Exactech Knee Implant Failure
Exactech Knee Implant Failure. Plastic polyethylene inserts with 147,732 recalled Exactech knee implant devices may degrade prematurely causing failure rates 3 to 7 times higher than other total knee replacement systems.
Scope of the Exactech Knee Implant Failure
A huge recall has begun for more than 140,000 Exactech knee implant replacement devices implanted in the United States since 2004. The Exactech knee implant replacement devices, have a defectively packaged polyethylene insert that may cause the knee implants to fail prematurely, resulting in the need for additional painful and expensive surgery.
Suboxone and Teeth Damage
Suboxone use is linked to teeth damage and the need for painful dental extractions. Suboxone is a popular prescription medication approved by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) to treat Opioid use disorder (OUD).
Suboxone oral film is highly acidic and its the acid that dissolves the enamel leading to teeth damage.
IVC Filter Fracture and Perforation
Bard Recovery & G2 IVC Filter Perforation. We are evaluating, accepting and filing Bard Recovery and G2 IVC Filter injury lawsuit cases.
The Dr Shezad Malik Law Firm is investigating serious and catastrophic injuries associated with the Cook Celect and Gunther line of vena cava filters.
Cordis Optease & Trapease IVC Filter Lawsuits. Cordis Corporation makes the OptEase and TrapEase IVC filters, which are designed to prevent pulmonary embolisms Unfortunately, recent studies have found alarming rates of filter fracture, perforation, migration, and tilting when the filters are not removed after a few months.
Bair Hugger Hip and Knee Infection
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.
