Inferior Vena Cava (IVC) filters are implanted in patients who are at risk of blood clots traveling into vital organs like the heart and lungs and blocking pulmonary arteries. When this happens, patients may develop a condition called pulmonary embolism, which can cause serious health problems. The filters, designed in spider-like, wiry shapes, prevent them from entering the heart and lungs.
If you have suffered complications due to the implantation of a transvaginal patch to treat POP or SUI, you are not alone, and may have a right to compensation. By filing a claim against the surgical mesh manufacturer, you could receive compensation for medical costs, lost wages, other financial burdens and for the pain and suffering caused by this defective medical device. You will also send a clear message to the manufacturer that it is unacceptable to sell medical devices that harm innocent people.
Your hearing was supposed to be protected. If you used Dual-Ended Combat Arms Earplugs from 3M when using a firearm, you probably trusted marketing that told you your ears were safe. If you're experiencing hearing loss, tinnitus or a loss of balance, it could be because of defective combat earplugs.
