defective heater cooler heart bypass lawsuit

Defective Heater-Cooler Heart Bypass Lawsuit

The Rappaport Law Firm is currently accepting clients in all 50 states who are interested in filing a defective heater-cooler heart bypass lawsuit.

*The specific defective heater-cooler heart bypass device under scrutiny is the Stockert 3T Heater-Cooler System.

The heater-cooler system is used for patients with specific temperature needs due to recent heart surgery.

“The Sorin 3T Heater-Cooler System provides 3 circuits for fast and efficient heating and cooling to meet your patient and cardioplegia temperature needs,” says the manufacturer’s website.

“The FDA continues to evaluate Nontuberculous Mycobacteria (NTM) infections associated with heater-cooler devices, primarily in patients undergoing cardiothoracic surgical procedures. This includes reviewing adverse event reports, medical literature, and information from state, national and international public health agencies,” says the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. “Our current analyses have identified potential root causes of contamination from heater-cooler devices, which we are evaluating to determine whether they definitively contribute to patient infection.”

Why File a Defective Heater-Cooler Heart Bypass Lawsuit?

A heater-cooler lawsuit for heart bypass patients has surfaced following reports of contamination.

According to recent reports, those who have undergone heart bypass surgery involving a heater-cooler device may be eligible to file a lawsuit against the manufacturers of the heater-cooler product.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) report that the contamination has been linked to a manufacturing plant in Germany.

“More than 250,000 heart bypass procedures using heater-cooler devices are performed in the United States every year. Heater-cooler units are an essential part of these life-saving surgeries because they help keep a patient’s circulating blood and organs at a specific temperature during the procedure. Approximately 60 percent of heart bypass procedures performed in the U.S. utilize the devices that have been associated with these infections,” the CDC says.

“The bacteria, Mycobacterium chimaera, is a species of nontuberculous mycobacterium (NTM) often found in soil and water. In the environment, M. chimaera rarely makes healthy people sick. Patients who have been exposed to the bacteria through open-heart surgery can develop general and nonspecific symptoms that can often take months to develop,” says the CDC. “As a result, diagnosis of these infections can be missed or delayed, sometimes for years, making these infections more difficult to treat. There is no test to determine whether a person has been exposed to the bacteria. Infections can be diagnosed by detecting the bacteria by laboratory culture; the slow growing nature of the bacteria can require up to two months to rule out infection.”

If you think you may have suffered contamination as a result of a defective heater-cooler device, call the Rappaport Law Firm today, at (216) 407-5199 to file a heater-cooler lawsuit for heart bypass patients.

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Lawsuit

Recall: Samsung Galaxy Note 7 lawsuit after explosion

Recall: Samsung Galaxy Note 7 lawsuit after explosion

The makers of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 are being sued after a Florida man reported second-degree burns to his leg. The device allegedly exploded in his pocket.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is now also being recalled.

According to recent reports, a man named Jonathan Strobel has reportedly filed a lawsuit against Samsung. Samsung is responsible for dispersing and making the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. The company is based in South Korea.

In 2015, the New York Times reported on Samsung’s presence in South Korea, calling it, “…the most dominant conglomerate” in the country.

“You can be born in the renowned Samsung Medical Center, attend a prestigious Samsung-owned university, live in Samsung housing complexes — even buy life insurance from a Samsung subsidiary and go for vacation to the Samsung-owned Everland amusement park,” the Times reported.

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Lawsuit

The makers of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 face a lawsuit after allegations of one device exploding in an unassuming consumer’s pocket.

Jonathan Strobel, of Palm Beach County, Fla., says that the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 burst while inside the pocket of his pants. According to reports, the lawsuit against the makers of Samsung Galaxy Note 7 attempts to award those injured by the device more than $15,000 in pecuniary damages. This amount includes medical costs and personal suffering.

According to reports, over one million Galaxy Note 7 smartphone devices have been sold in the United States. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has calculated that approximately 97-percent of those Galaxy Note 7’s sold contain the defective battery.Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Lawsuit

What is causing the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 to explode?

The Samsung Galaxy note 7 is detonating without warning because of a faulty battery, according to news sources.

Incidents of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 exploding were first reported in China. According to the Financial Times, “Samsung China said that in a case of sudden combustion on September 18, the damage to the phone was ‘brought about by heat from an external source.'”

It is also said that many cases of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 occurred while the battery was charging.

“The company’s affiliate Samsung SDI has been widely blamed for the faulty batteries that prompted the recall,” the Financial Times reports.

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Recall: What You Need to Know

Samsung has issued a recall for the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. It includes all Samsung Galaxy Note 7 devices bought on or before Sept. 15, 2016.

In a statement released by Samsung, the company urged all consumers in possession of a Samsung Galaxy Note 7 to power them down and locate a facility that will take the device back.

Efforts to remove this dangerous device from consumer homes will be held conjointly with the CPSC.

According to Samsung, consumers may exchange their current Galaxy Note 7 with a new and improved version approved by the CPSC. Galaxy Note 7 owners can also exchange their current Galaxy Note 7 with a Galaxy S7 edge, or Galaxy S7, receiving a refund for the difference in cost between the devices.

Consumers may also contact their place of purchase and request a refund for their defective Galaxy Note 7.

So what kind of damage has this chimera caused?

The Express UK reports that one Note 7 caused an estimated $1,800 in damages after exploding in a hotel room. It is also said to have badly burned the inside of a JEEP.

The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has also warned consumers against turning the devices on during a commercial air flight. They have also been prohibited from any baggage that is check-in. The FAA cites experiencing a number of battery issues.

IKEA DRESSER RECALL

Ikea Recalls Dresser after Child Deaths

One Pennsylvania mother was horrified to find her two-year old crushed beneath an Ikea dresser. He was pronounced dead a few hours after the incident occurred.

Ikea has announced that it will recall more than 29 million dressers after the death of at least three toddlers since 1989, reports say.

The world’s leading furniture manufacturer, Ikea, announced the involuntary recall alongside the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) this June. It is the MALM series dresser, sources say, that is the prime target of this consumer safety recall.

“I didn’t know to anchor my furniture and, in my mind, I feel that we really shouldn’t have to,” Collas said. “Get rid of it, it’s dangerous, it’s a really dangerous product,” Jaquelyn Collas told ABC news.

According to Collas, the manufacturers of this product are not ensuring its safety; nor are they providing consumers with a comprehensive warning, as to tip-over risks.

According to reports, the company will offer refunds for recalled Ikea dressers; or a safety update/repair for existing furniture.

“…a child in the U.S. is killed every two weeks in a tip-over related incident involving furniture or TVs, and hundreds more are injured. In addition to agreeing to the recall, Ikea, the world’s largest furniture retailer, made a commitment to sell in the U.S. only dressers that comply with the most up-to-date performance standards for furniture stability,” writes Consumer Reports.

Which Ikea Dresser Models are Being Recalled?

Several Ikea models of dressers and drawers are being recalled, including any children’s model that is more than 23.5 inches tall. This Ikea Dresser recall also includes adult models which are taller than 29 inches.

The following Ikea Dresser models are also being recalled: 

  • MALM 3-DRAWER
  • MALM 4-DRAWER
  • MALM 5-DRAWER
  • THREE 6-DRAWER MODELS

How to Report a Recalled Ikea Dresser as a “Tip-Over” Risk

Those who believe they have one of the above-mentioned Ikea Dreser MALM models, are encouraged to call 1-866-856-4532 or email: secureit@ikea.com, for customer support and more information regarding the Ikea Dresser Recall.

Xarelto Lawsuit Filed Against Makers of Drug

Xarelto Lawsuit Filed Against Makers of Drug

A Xarelto Lawsuit has been filed against the makers of the drug, according to recent reports.

On Nov. 20, 2015, remaining family members of individuals who had taken Xarelto, and passed away in a serious bleeding event, filed a wrongful death lawsuit. Involving 10 plaintiffs, according to the Digital Journal, the Xarelto Lawsuit was filed in St. Clair County Circuit Court. (IL)

The Xarelto Lawsuit was filed against the makers of the drug, which includes Bayer and Janssen Pharmaceuticals.

“The (Xarelto) suit alleges that because of deceptive marketing using celebrities as spokespersons, the public was not sufficiently informed about the potentially dangerous side effects of taking Xarelto. It is alleged that despite the company’s research showing otherwise, the makers of the drug knowingly and fraudulently depicted it as a safe option for patients that had undergone knee and hip replacement procedures or as a treatment for a medical condition impacting the heart called atrial fibrillation,” writes the Digital Journal.

According to reports, the manufacturers of the prescription drug Xarelto were warned in June 2013, by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), that their marketing of the drug was misleading. They were warned to stop such advertising practices. However, no changes were made on behalf of the makers of Xarelto.

Xarelto Lawsuit Filed Against Makers of Drug

Those who have filed a lawsuit against the makers of Xarelto are reportedly asking for $50,000 in damages, per each deceased family member; in addition to attorney’s fees and other legal costs.

“The plaintiffs, in this case, are requesting a minimum payment of $50,000 for each deceased family member with the purpose of covering medical bills, funeral expenses, legal fees and other such costs to compensate for the pain and suffering endured by those family members left behind,: writes the Digital Journal. “There have been nine counts of misconduct ranging from wrongful death to fraud.”

Proton-Pump Inhibitors and Medical Complications

Proton-Pump Inhibitors and Medical Complications

Aside from causing kidney complications, it is now alleged that some antacids carry an increased risk for dementia.

According to a recent study published by the JAMA (Journal of American Medicine Association) ‘neurology’ division, certain antacids; including both proton-pump inhibitors (PPIs) and H2 blockers, may speed up the process of cognitive decline in some individuals.

“This finding is supported by recent pharmacoepidemiological analyses on primary data and is in line with mouse models in which the use of PPIs increased the levels of β-amyloid in the brains of mice,” the study further states. “Randomized, prospective clinical trials are needed to examine the connection in more detail.”

According to the study published by JAMA in April 2016, “the avoidance of PPI medication may prevent the development of dementia.”

Linking Antacids with Health Problems

Many antacids are available without a prescription. This means, they are widely-available to all consumers for purchase over-the-counter.

Antacids, or PPIs, can be prescribed for long-term use, or utilized on an as-needed basis. Some medical officials recommend not using antacids for more than four to eight weeks at one time.

Antacids work by altering the acid content in the stomach, which is known to cause heartburn and discomfort.

Another type of health problem linked to antacid use is a type of infection, known as C. difficile. 

C. difficile kills an estimated 14,000 to 30,000 people a year in the United States, federal reports show,” says the Center for Health Reporting.

According to the site, when a young man named Wei Wang, a pharmacy resident at St. Joseph’s Medical Center in Stockton, Calif., began leafing through patient’s charts, he found a startling connection between those with C. difficile and antacids.

He found that 76-percent of patients who contracted the infection C. difficile, had taken one or more of the antacids Nexium, Prevacid and Prilosec. Individuals are now seeking a Nexium Lawsuit Attorney, due to allegations that the popular PPIs may also cause kidney problems.

In the US and some countries, these wonder drugs are available as OTC (over the counter) drugs for treating gastric acid reflux diseases (GERD),” writes   These drugs are also prescribed for long-term use in our country. The US Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) recommended use of these drugs for 4-8 weeks only,” reports the Hindu Business Times.
