Bard Pelvic Mesh Implants

Mesh Implants a serious women's health issue

FDA Warning On Mesh Implant Failure

Some issues are so tragic it is hard to report the full details, but we owe it to the women suffering to tell this story. The Bard Pelvic Mesh - a device marketed to help women who suffer from Pelvic Organ Prolapse, and Incontinence - has allegedly caused much more severe and painful conditions than the one it was designed to eliminate.

Woman pensive - Pelvic Mesh ImplantSome women have endured horrific pain and additional invasive surgeries in an attempt to correct the damage from defective impants. We have heard from scores of women who have courageously stepped out of the shadows to tell their stories. Make your voice heard!

The FDA warning issued in 2008 is sobering:

Over the past three years, FDA has received over 1,000 reports from nine surgical mesh manufacturers of complications that were associated with surgical mesh devices used to repair POP and SUI. These mesh devices are usually placed transvaginally utilizing tools for minimally invasive placement.

The most frequent complications included erosion through Vaginal Epithelium, infection, pain, urinary problems, and recurrence of prolapse and/or incontinence. There were also reports of Bowel, Bladder, and Blood Vessel perforation during insertion. In some cases, Vaginal scarring and mesh erosion led to a significant decrease in patient quality of life due to discomfort and pain, including Dyspareunia.

If you or a loved one have suffered the pain and humilation of the failure of a Bard Pelvic    Mesh implant we are here to help. Don't suffer in silence. Get the facts, and contact MedRecallNews today.

DePuy Hip Implants

Defective Hip Implants

DePuy Hip Implants Worldwide Recall

DePuy Hip Implant RecallDePuy Orthopadedics, a division of Johnson & Johnson, has issued a worldwide recall of it's ASRTM Acetabular System for Total Hip Replacement, after determining that these hip implants may fail at an alarming rate.

The "metal-on-metal" composition of these implants can release particles into the patient potentially causing serious and painful reactions-sometimes requiring complete revision surgery.

Reportedly, Johnson & Johnson has been seeking medical releases from Recipients so that their claim adjustors can speak with you directly and possibly take down statements without your having counsel present. This is an unwise action for any recipient of these defective devices.

Having a defective hip implant in your body clearly demands having your own lawyer. You must be very cautious with dealing with the manufacturer or its representatives without proper legal representation.

Wright Hip Implants

Wright Hip Implant Failure Rate a Concern

Data Suggests High Rate of Failure

The United States has poor record keeping for the tracking of Implants and their long term success. But in Australia national records have shown an alarming statistic - the Wright Profemur Z hip had a failure rate of well-over 11 percent percent at three years.. The history of Hip Implants has not been great. The FDA created a website specifically to track recalls and warnings related to problems with a number of manufacturers. Now the Wright Profemur Z Hip is also a cause for concern.

Wright Profemur StemThe Wright Profemur Total Hip System is designed with an adjustable femoral neck. The neck can bend and were designed to be modular to allow adjustments for leg length. However, it appears that the Wright Profemur neck may be prone to fracture, break, degrade, fret and ultimately fail. An alarming number of individuals have had the Femoral Stem/Neck snap and break during normal activities of daily life. This can lead to debilitating injuries and require risky hip revision surgery to remove the defective hip implant and replace it.

If you or a loved one have had a Wright Hip Implant within the last three years and have suffered hip pain, or perhaps have already been forced to undergo replacement surgery, we are here to help.
