Omni Life Apex ARC Hip Replacement Lawyers

OMNI Life Science’s ARC hip Replacement has a  chromium and cobalt ball connecting to a titanium stem, is a metal-on-metal design. This hip replacement is like  DePuy. The OMNI’s ARC system   has   a metal ball inside a titanium stem, resembling the femur. There are increasing reports of failure of the hip implant and out lawyers are filing lawsuit on behalf of victims with a failed hip implant.

 Florida Woman Files Omni Life Hip Replacement Lawsuit

A recipient of the implant  in Florida sued OMNI in June 2014. Her physician determined her ARC hip system caused her to develop a fibrotic and necrotic pseudo tumor and dangerous buildup of chromium, cobalt, and titanium in the blood. Her lawsuit alleges OMNI ignored the flaws in the artificial hip system, which led to its early failure.

DePuy Hip Replacement Helpline has launched a DePuy Pinnacle Helpline to locate all people with a faulty DePuy Pinnacle. You must file your DePuy Pinnacle lawsuit right away.

Recipients of the various metal on metal hip implants are suffering nationwide.

“I used to ski, hike and swim. Tennis was my favorite sport and I miss it so much. I can’t do any of that anymore. All I can do now is watch videos on the computer or watch TV. As you can imagine, I gained weight (I just went on a diet) since I had my hip replaced. I can’t lose weight by exercising, and because I can’t exercise, my whole body aches. I guess I will get revision surgery at the last minute, if they can still do it. The doctor told my mother that my hip might not even be able to get fixed again, so that has made me even more hesitant.”

History Of the Failed DePuy

2009

In August, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warns DePuy about the safety of an artificial hip device sold abroad. DePuy’s research and clinical data are inadequate, so it can’t sell the product in the United States. Meanwhile, DePuy continues to market the product outside America.

2010

DePuy begins phasing out two models of its all-metal implants that are sold in the United States. The company cites falling sales. (According to a 2012 New York Times report, DePuy actually started planning the phase-out shortly after receiving the FDA warning.) Reports of complications and high rates of early device failure have already surfaced. DePuy defends its devices by blaming failures on surgeon errors.

2010

DePuy finally recalls its Articular Surface Replacement (ASR) Acetabular Hip System and ASR Hip Resurfacing System. It cites “higher than expected revision rates” for the all-metal devices.

2011

The FDA warns DePuy to stop selling certain products, including artificial joint systems, without proper approval. It also cites ineffective quality control procedures.

2012

 Biomet Magnum Hip Lawyers Appointed to Leadership Roles in MDL

Posted: 17 Dec 2012 08:17 AM PST

More than two dozen lawyers have been appointed to serve in various leadership positions in the federal multidistrict litigation (MDL) established for all Biomet M2A Magnum hip lawsuits filed in the federal court system.

These attorneys will take various actions throughout the litigation that will benefit all plaintiffs who filed a product liability lawsuit after experiencing problems with the Biomet metal-on-metal hip replacement system.

On October 2, the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) ordered that all product liability lawsuits filed against Biomet in federal courts throughout the country that involve the M2A Magnum metal hip implant will be centralized for pretrial proceedings before U.S. District Judge Robert L. Miller, Jr. in the Northern District of Indiana.

Centralizing the litigation is designed to reduce duplicative discovery in dozens of cases, avoiding conflicting pretrial rulings from different judges and to serve the convenience of the parties, witnesses and Courts.

In an order (PDF) issued on December 5, Judge Miller established the organizational structure of the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee (PSC) in the Biomet MDL, appointing 22 different attorneys to serve in various roles throughout the consolidated proceedings.

The Biomet Magnum hip lawyers selected for the PSC will conduct pretrial discovery that applies to multiple cases, examine witnesses and introduce evidence on behalf of all plaintiffs at hearings and perform other tasks during pretrial proceedings that may apply to all cases in the MDL.

Judge Miller appointed Thomas R. Anapol and W. Mark Lanier to serve as Co-Lead Counsel, with Robert T. Dassow and Frederick R. Hovde appointed to serve as Liason Counsel. In addition, another six lawyers were designated to serve on the Executive Committee of the PSC.

Toning Shoes Causing Hip Fractures, Skechers Sneakers Lawyers Filing Lawsuits

Written by lisaspitzer on . Posted in Skechers Tone Ups Hip fracture Injury lawyer, Toning Shoes Lawsuits

Toning shoes cause Hip fractures and Hip replacements are no laughing matter. With sneakers causing hip fractures and hip replacements being recalled what are we to do? Lawsuits galore for malfunctioning devices that wreck havoc on seniors. Beware and call for an injury lawyer now.

By ELISABETH LEAMY (@elisabethleamy)
Feb. 16, 2011

A new lawsuit alleges that Skecher's Shape-up shoes can cause serious injuries.

An Ohio woman is suing the company after developing stress fractures in both hips — which she blames on the shoes.

Skecher's Shape-ups have a distinctive round sole. They are marketed as toning shoes, the fastest-growing segment of the athletic shoe market.

Toning shoes are meant to help you get in shape as you walk or work. But at least one person says rather than helping them, the shoes hurt them.

Holly Ward, 38, says her routine involves physical therapy and she now has pins in her hips because of injuries she says were caused by wearing Sketcher's Shape-ups.

"The extended use of these shoes has injured me catastrophically," Ward told "Good Morning America."

Shape-ups are advertised as helping you get in shape and helping reduce pain. Kim Kardashian and former NFL quarterback Joe Montana have appeared in commercials for Shape-ups.

Ward says she wore the shoes during her work as a waitress and while on walks and developed severe pain after five months. According to her lawsuit, she had fractures in both hips near where they meet the thigh bones even though she has the healthy bone density of a young woman.
 

"The femoral bone is the strongest bone in the human body and I fractured not one but two of them without being in a car crash or any traumatic incident," she said.

Skechers and its critics do agree on one thing: Shape-ups shoes change the way you walk.

A Skechers training video advises wearers to "step forward with the middle section of your heel hitting the ground first. Roll forward onto the ball of your foot and push off with your toes."

Company Says Millions Wear Shape-Ups Without Problems

The company calls its shoes revolutionary. Ward's lawyer calls them dangerous.

"We do not know of any testing or safety studies that Skechers did to determine safety," said Ronald Johnson, Ward's attorney. "If they're going to invent a whole new way for a human being to walk, the very first thing they should do is studies to make sure that's not going to harm their customers."

Ward says the potential gain is not worth the potential risk.

ABC spoke to half a dozen orthopedists and most were skeptical that shoes alone could cause stress fractures.

Skechers told ABC that "since this lawsuit is brand new, we have not had an opportunity to review Ms. Ward's allegations … millions of people wear Shape-ups without experiencing what Ms. Ward alleges."

Sketcher sneaker lawyers are accepting sketcher sneaker injury claims for:

Foot Injuries including:
Stress Fractures, Fallen Arches, Hammer Toe, Turf Toe, Inflammation of the Forefoot, Plantar Fasciitis, and Joint Displacement.

Leg Injuries including
Strains and Sprains, Fractures, Dislocation, Joint Injuries, Shin Splints, Tendonitis, and Nerve Damage.

Many seniors have fallen victim to the new Stryker hip replacement recall. This is not metal on metal but, Metal stems and components but, has shown the same rate of complications and metal toxicity factors. Seniors must see a doctor immediately and contact our Stryker helpline for a lawyer. Revision surgery for seniors includes months of rehabilitation.

Stryker Lawsuit Updates, Stryker Lawyers Propose Consolidation

Current news and updates regarding the Stryker Hip Replacement

Consolidation Of Lawsuits Against Stryker Are In the Works
The Logic Behind The Consolidation

Lawsuits have been filed against Stryker Orthopaedics over its defective hip implants.  Cases are under consideration for consolidation New Jersey.The  The proposal is to move for an MDL or consolidation in Bergen County Superior Court in Hackensack, N.J., Honorable Brian Martinotti, who is the judge presiding over that court, has experience overseeing Depuy ASR hip implant lawsuits.

At issue are Stryker’s Rejuvenate and ABG II modular-neck hip stems, which were marketed as a way for orthopaedic surgeons to give patients a better fit with their hip implants because they can be customized using various parts. The Rejuvenate hip offers surgeons six stems and 16 necks, and the ABG II has 10 necks and 16 stems that work together.
Metal-on-Metal Problems

The problem, however, is that the neck and stem parts have all-metal conjunctions, Stryker stated, which are to blame for complications similar to those seen in DePuy hip implant patients. Stryker patients are experiencing painful, early failure of their devices because the metal parts are grinding against each other and wearing out. Most hip implants have an average life of 15 years, but the Rejuvenate and ABG II modular-neck hip stems are failing after just months, by some reports. All-metal hip implants also have been associated with metallosis, or the poisoning of the bloodstream.

Stryker recalled the Rejuvenate and ABG II on July 6, 2012. The Rejuvenate had only been on the market since February 2009.

Stryker Hip Replacement Helpline, Stryker Recall Lawyers

Written by lisaspitzer on . Posted in Stories and Sharing

A Stryker Hip Replacement Helpline has been launched for victims of the latest Stryker voluntary recall of the Stryker ABG II modular-neck stem used for total hip replacement surgery and the Stryker Rejuvinate modular-neck stem hip implant. The  Stryker hip implants have been recalled due to the fact that they could fret or corrode, harming body tissue and causing pain or swelling.

Complications and Injuries that are noted include:

  •     Severe inflammatory reactions
  •     Pain in the groin
  •     Need for additional medical care and revision surgeries
  •     Breakdown of muscles, tendons and other soft tissues in and around the hip joint
  •     Loss of surrounding bone
  •     Loss of mobility

The Stryker Rejuvenate side effects  appear to be similiar to the  Metal on Metal Hip Replacements that have caused a landslide of lawsuits against DePuy Orthopedics.
While other types of hip implants such as those made by Johnson & Johnson and DePuy Orthopaedics Inc. involve a metal ball rubbing against a metal socket, the Stryker Rejuvenate products involve a metal neck inside a metal stem. It appears that lawyers are beginning to build cases against Stryker as a part of the complete metal on metal hip replacement lawsuits. Stryker does run the risk of metal toxicity as chromium and cobalt poisoning may occur.

Anyone experiencing side effects from these Stryker products is advised to call the Stryker Hip Replacement Helpline for a Stryker Hip Replacement lawyer.

 

Stryker states that the rate of complications arising from the recalled devices was "extremely low." The company based its recall decision on information collected since the products hit the market, saying it "may be predictive of a trend." It instructed patients implanted with the devices to contact their surgeon.

Hip replacement lawyers are accepting clients for the The Stryker ABG II modular-neck stem used for total hip replacement surgery and
The Stryker Rejuvinate modular-neck stem hip implant. Stryker recalled both of these products on July 4, 2012 because the metal of the neck and stem can corrode, releasing toxic metal ions that can damage tissue and bones around the hip implant.  This can cause severe pain, inflammation, metal poisoning (metallosis from chromium and cobalt), tissue death (necrosis), bone damage, pseudotumers, gait issues, and other serious problems. Revision surgery (to remove and replace the recalled Stryker hip product) may be required.

Hip Replacement Lawyers and the DePuy Hip Replacement Helpline has launched a special division and helpline for victims of a failed Stryker hip implant.

Styker Orthopaedics has announced a recall of the ABG II modular-neck stem hip implant. Metal-on-metal parts of the device can corrode, shed toxic nano-particles into the body, and cause severe pain, inflammation, metal poisoning (metallosis), pseudotumors, and more
What You Can Do & How a Stryker ABG II Hip Implant Lawsuit Can Help

The Stryker ABG II modular-neck stem

The Stryker ABG II modular-neck stem is a new type of multi-piece hip replacement system. When it was approved, the company claimed that its many interchangeable parts made it ideal for matching each patient’s unique biomechanics.
Although the Stryker ABG II is technically a plastic-on-ceramic hip implant, the device has a unique neck/stem junction that is a metal-on-metal design. Like other metal-on-metal hip implants (including the DePuy ASR, which was recalled in 2010), the Stryker ABG II was fast-tracked through the FDA’s approval process via the 510(k) system. The FDA allows manufacturers to avoid conducting long-term safety studies of new devices so long as they are “substantially similar” to existing devices
Stryker ABG II Recall

Stryker first warned orthopedic surgeons about the risks of the ABG II hip implant in an Urgent Field Safety Notice that was sent in May 2012. The warning advised doctors to be aware of the following severe side effects associated with the ABG II hip implant:

  •     Excessive corrosion at the neck joint, which could shed toxic nano-particles into the patient’s body
  •     Pain, inflammation, tissue damage, and swelling caused by toxic metal nano-particles
  •     Allergic reaction, especially in patients with metal sensitivity
  •     Osteolysis (dissolving bone loss) caused by metal nano-particles

Complications

  •     Chronic pain in the hip joint
  •     Inflammation, swelling
  •     Less walking ability, changes in gait
  •     Metallosis (metal poisoning)
  •     Corrosion of the hip implant
  •     Tissue damage or death (necrosis)
  •     Bone loss in the hip
  •     Pseudotumors

The Stryker Rejuvenate hip implant

Stryker Rejuvenate Recall
In July 2012, Stryker voluntarily recalled its Rejuvenate and ABG II modular-neck stems from the market. The products were recalled due to reports of fretting and corrosion. According to some reports, the FDA received two adverse events linked to the recalled devices, including one in which the device was removed.

On May 28, 2012, Health Canada announced that Stryker Rejuvenate was being recalled so the instructions for use could be updated. The recall affected only Rejuvenate devices sold in Canada and was based on a reported rate of less than one percent for revisions associated with the Rejuvenate. So far, no such Stryker recall has been announced in the US.

Injury Lawyers  announce launch of Medtronic Infuse Bone Graft Lawsuit  Division and Medtronic Infuse Bone Graft Helpline
to educate individuals and families harmed by  off-label bone graft procedures and to help them understand the complications and how to pursue legal action with a Metronic Infuse Bone Graft Lawyer.

Medtronic faces an increasing number of product liability and personal injury lawsuit. Most recently, a Louisiana man, filed a lawsuit alleging that the company’s Infuse bone graft caused unwanted bone growth along his spinal cord, which worsened his back pain following a lumbar fusion.

The plaintiff, Martin Gavin alleges that Medtronic concealed information about the risk of complications from the Medtronic Infuse bone graft.

What is Medtronic Infuse?

Infuse, also known as bone morphogenetic protein-2, is a powerful bioengineered agent used in spinal fusion surgery. The product stimulates bone growth and eliminates the need to harvest a small amount of a patient's own bone to create a fusion between two vertebrae. As a result, it is highly popular with spine surgeons.

FDA Approved Infuse for limited use

The FDA approved Infuse in 2002 for use during anterior lumbar fusion surgeries. But as a result of slick and pressured marketing, it has been widely used off-label for a number of other types of spinal surgery, which have been found to increase the risk of severe adverse side effects.

Plaintiffs allege that they were never told that the Infuse was only approved for single-level anterior lumbar fusion, and had ever been adequately tested or approved for the type of spine surgery they underwent.

Medtronic Infuse Off Label Use

Off-label use of the Medtronic Infuse bone graft during procedures other than single-level anterior lumbar fusion have been linked to the growth of bone in those areas, leading to swelling and nerve damage.

FDA 2008 Warning

The FDA issued an alert in 2008, advising doctors not to use the Medtronic Infuse in neck or cervical spinal fusion procedures. The FDA had received numerous adverse event reports, involving potentially fatal complications that included swelling of the neck and respiratory difficulties.

U.S. Department of Justice investigation

The U.S. Department of Justice initiated an investigation focusing on the actions of Medtronic in 2008. The U.S DOJ was particularly interested in investigating whether Medtronic illegally promoted and marketed the Infuse bone graft for uses that were never approved by the FDA.

Other Medtronic Infuse Side Effects

Last year, concerns also emerged that the Medtronic Infuse bone graft may increase the risk of cancer. There have also been concerns that med treated with Medtronic Infuse may face a risk of sterility.

Shareholders said Infuse sales and Medtronic's share price fell after the company revealed that the U.S. Department of Justice was probing off-label marketing and the U.S. Senate began its own inquiry.

he Infuse Bone Graft is  manufactured by Medtronic. The infuse Bone Graft is a  biologically-engineered protein (known as rhBMP-2) that is used to promote bone growth and replace damaged spinal discs. It is used in conjunction with a metallic cage implant (LT-Cage Device) that works to stabilize the spine as the new bone grows. Infuse Bone Graft is designed to reduce the pain and complications that are associated with treating degenerative disc disease (DDD) by eliminating the second surgery that is typically required to remove bone from a patient’s hip for transplantation to the spine for repair.

FDA Alerts on the Infuse Bone Graft

The FDA put special emphasis on the fact ”that the safety and effectiveness of rhBMP in the cervical spine have not been demonstrated and these products are not approved by FDA for this use.”

The FDA stated that they had received at least 38 reports of complications during the last 4 years with the use of rhBMP in cervical spine fusion. These complications were associated with swelling of neck and throat tissue, which resulted in compression of the airway and/or neurological structures in the neck. Some reports describe difficulty swallowing, breathing or speaking. Severe dysphagia following cervical spine fusion using rhBMP products has also been reported in the literature.

The Infuse Bone graft has been Approved for

DDD occurs when a spinal disc deteriorates to the point of causing back pain, a diagnosis that must be confirmed by history and x-rays. Spinal fusion is a surgical method used to treat DDD and involves removing the damaged disc and replacing it with bone graft that will fuse – or join – the two adjacent vertebrae together in order to stabilize the spine. Infuse Bone Graft is used in over 100,000 U.S. spinal fusion surgeries each year.

Infuse Bone Graft is currently approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in anterior spinal fusion of the lumbar spine, as well as for the repair of open tibial shaft fractures and two minor dental procedures.

                                                                 Infuse Bone Graft should not be used  for

  • Women who are pregnant or who suspect pregnancy
  • Individuals with infections near the area of the surgical incision
  • Individuals who have had a tumor removed from the area of the implantation site
  • Individuals who currently have tumors in or near the area of the implantation site
  • Individuals whose bones have not stopped growing
  • Individuals who are sensitive to titanium, titanium alloy, bovine (cow) Type I collagen or rhBMP-2.

The Infuse Bone graft is being Used for off label not FDA approved Use

The FDA originally approved Infuse Bone Graft in 2002 but as with many drugs and devices, off-label use of Infuse Bone Graft was permitted once the device received FDA approval. The practice of using a drug or device off-label is permitted if physicians believe it will benefit their patients and if they fully advise their patients of the risks associated with the off-label use. In July of 2008, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a warning to healthcare providers about reported life-threatening complications associated with the off-label use of Infuse Bone Graft for cervical (neck) spinal fusions. This warning was issued in response to 38 reports of complications received by the FDA between 2004 and 2008. These complications include neck and throat swelling leading to airway compression, swallowing and breathing difficulties, as well as problems with speech. In the warning, the FDA noted that “the safety and effectiveness of rhBMP in the cervical spine have not been demonstrated and these products are not approved by FDA for this use.”

Infuse Bone Graft lawyers are Filing lawsuits for complications from the infuse bone graft

The Medtronic Infuse Bone Graft has been linked to life-threatening complications in patients who were given Medtronic off-label. Medtronic bone graft complications include swelling of the airways, which can cause difficulty breathing, speaking and swallowing. Medtronic Infuse has also been linked to retrograde ejaculation which can lead to male sterility. A number of Medtronic lawsuits allege the manufacturer illegally promoted the Medtronic bone product for off-label uses.
