IVC Filter Injuries May Take Years to Notice

Over the past two years, our law firm has been actively investigating claims and filing lawsuits relating to a variety of inferior vena cava filters (“IVC filters”), including those manufactured by Cook Medical and C.R. Bard.
IVC filters are tiny, metal cages implanted in a person’s vein and intended to prevent blood clots. They are most often used during other surgeries or in people that cannot take regular blood thinners.

Fifth Jury Says Johnson & Johnson Talcum Powder Causes Ovarian Cancer

For the fifth time in six trials, a jury has found Johnson & Johnson liable for hiding the fact that its popular Baby Powder and Shower to Shower products can cause ovarian cancer.

Most recently, a jury in St. Louis awarded Lois Slemp more than $100 million, after she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer following more than 40 years of talcum powder use.

FDA Highlights Ties between Breast Implants and Cancer

It has been reported that on February 1, 2017, the FDA had received over 350 reports of a specific type of cancer that was tied to the breast implants. This cancer, the anaplastic large cell lymphoma is also known as ALCL and is a very rare. There have been at least nine deaths tied to this ALCL which is a malignancy of the immune system that is generated in scar tissue in the breast capsule.

Silicone Breast Implants Back In The News

Two lawsuits filed recently in California have put the spotlight back on breast implants. As you probably recall, there were hundreds if not thousands of lawsuits filed against the makers of silicon implants in the Eighties and Nineties. Silicone-filled implants were banned by the federal government in 1992.

New Study: IVC Filters May Not Be Worth the Risk

We’ve previously reported on IVC filters—small, cage-like devices designed to prevent blood clots from reaching the lungs, and most commonly used in patients that cannot take blood-thinners or for whom blood-thinners are not effective.

Unfortunately, the “temporary” and “retrievable” devices are often anything but. In 2014, the Food and Drug Administration warned that IVC devices can move inside the body or break up into tiny pieces, causing serious injury to the heart, lungs, or other organs.
