Pharmaceutical Cases Newsflash July 2013

The Law Office of J. Neil Lanzi, P.A. is associated with counsel who handles pharmaceutical cases involving drugs or medical devices that injure people.

First, we try to keep you informed of the latest developments. A serious issue has now arisen with regard to the Triathlon knee replacement prosthesis. This is a Stryker product that has been used in connection with knee replacements that use a “ShapeMatch” cutting system. The ShapeMatch Cutting System helps the surgeon size the bone and now has been recalled as a Class 1 recall by the FDA. A Class 1 recall means that the product might cause serious injury or even death.

Second, problems have arisen from the use of the Transvaginal Mesh Devices for the treatment of urinary stress incontinence or pelvic floor injuries.

Third, due to serious complications, investigations are currently under way for products made by DePuy known as “ASR” or “Pinnacle” used for hip relacements.

If you, your family member or friend have been exposed to these devices and have developed any of the problems listed, or wish to have the matter checked out, please feel free to call my office for a free consultation with regard to the problem. We will be happy to investigate whether or not you have rights with respect to this pharmaceutical product or device based upon your use of the same as well as your current medical history.

As always, thank you for your consideration of my firm for these legal services. If you have any questions, please contact us by phone or email at 410.296.0686 or nlanzi@lanzilaw.com
