Every year, an estimated 1.7 million people suffer some sort of traumatic brain injury (TBI). According to the CDC, these injuries contribute to about 30% of all injury deaths.
In a 2-part series, NBC News speaks with Dodi Froehlich, a woman who suffered multiple traumas after a car accident, putting her at high risk for blood clots. As part of her treatment, an IVC device (the Recovery) made by C.R. Bard was implanted to prevent potential clots.
Instead, just four months later, that same device almost killed her when a piece broke off, piercing her heart.
When you need some sort of assisted care for your elderly parent, grandparent, or other adult, you want the best care possible. You trust that facilities such as nursing homes know how to handle health and hygiene issues and can empathize with loneliness and forgetfulness. It is unthinkable that these facilities may be breeding grounds for elder abuse.
However, elder abuse is a serious issue.
It’s that time of year once again. Big yellow school busses are on the move taking some 23 million kids back and forth to school.
The U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) has decided to consolidate all pending IVC filter cases against C.R. Bard, Inc. and Bard Peripheral Vascular. This decision will centralize all cases filed in the federal court system before one judge, the Honorable David G. Campbell, United States District Court for the District of Arizona, allowing for coordinated pretrial proceedings.
It is anticipated that more than 200 cases will be immediately transferred with hundreds more to follow.
Approximately 34 million cars affected makes the Takata Airbag recall literally the largest vehicle recall in history surpassing Ford’s defective transmissions in the 1980s, which affected 21 million vehicles.
Truck drivers work long hours, face strenuous deadlines and often have rigorous schedules. Is it any wonder that one of the leading causes for truck driving accidents is due to driver fatigue?
Picture this scenario.
You’re on the way to pick your kids up from school. As you near a stop light, it turns from green to yellow. What do you do? Do you continue to drive through the intersection, chancing that it could turn red? Or do you stop?
Road construction is a necessary evil to maintain our roadways and keep them safe. However, it can also be very frustrating when you come up on construction work zones you didn’t expect as you’re driving to your destination, especially if there are detours you have to contend with.
More people are choosing to have a hip replacement to give them back their mobility, improve their ability to perform daily activities, and improve their quality of life.
This surgery involves removing the damaged hip joint and replacing it with a new artificial joint. One popular option is a metal-on-metal (MoM) hip replacement device where a metal femoral head (the ball) and a metal acetabular cup (the socket) replace the natural bone ball-and-socket joint.
Unfortunately, over time, some of these MoM devices are failing due to stem and neck fractures.
