Ongoing Thigh Pain: Experts Recommend Early Sling Revision

Dr. Greg Vigna

Dr. Greg Vigna

Thigh and groin pain after placement of TOT vaginal mesh ‘sling’ continues as the primary source of morbidity for women who undergo ‘sling’ placement for SUI.

Injured women now have resources available to understand treatment options available for mesh related complications. Unfortunately, TOT slings and mini-slings continue to be implanted.”

— Dr. Greg Vigna

MODESTO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, November 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Ongoing Thigh Pain: Experts Recommend Early Sling Revision

Thigh pain and groin pain after placement of transobturator tape (TOT) vaginal mesh ‘sling’ continues as the primary source of morbidity for women who undergo ‘sling’ placement for stress urinary incontinence (SUI). The source of chronic pain may be either direct muscle damage in the thigh (myofascial pain) or nerve damage (obturator neuralgia and/or pudendal neuralgia) caused by the polypropylene arms of the sling.

Manufacturers of the TOT ‘slings’ have kept these devices on the market despite the growing medical literature and FDA reported complaints of unacceptable risk of significant disabling pain associated with these devices. A few of the various TOT sling devices have been voluntarily removed from the market by their manufacturers, but unfortunately a majority of these devices remain as they market ‘mini-slings’ to physicians with shorter polypropylene arms that don’t pass into the thigh with hopes that these smaller slings would not cause the above crippling diagnoses.

Unfortunately, ‘mini-slings’ like their predecessors (TOT slings) continue to cause catastrophic pain syndromes including obturator neuralgia, pudendal neuralgia, and complex regional pain syndrome that cause disabling life-time pain syndromes that require costly ongoing medical care including medication management, pelvic floor physical therapy, Botox Injections, mesh revision surgery, and implantable nerve stimulators.

The American Urogynecologic Society (AUGS) has done little to publish best practice standards for clinicians who implant these devices with patients with persistent post-operative thigh pain despite published opinions by leaders such as Dr. Steven Petrou who recommends ‘that the rapid appearance of pain after the placement of a suburethral tape should embolden the surgeon to promptly proceed with removal prior to the period of tissue ingrowth’ into the sling arms. (Source: http://www.scielo.br/scielo.php?script=sci_arttext&pid=S1677-55382010000600028)

Fortunately, the standard of care for dealing with thigh pain, groin pain, painful intercourse (dyspareunia) after TOT or mini-sling implantation is early removal of these devices. Timely referral is now the standard of care to trained physicians in vaginal mesh revision surgery as a new generation of physicians have obtained the necessary training during their residencies to diagnose and treat the catastrophic pain syndromes associated with the TOT and mini-sling devices used for SUI.

Dr. Greg Vigna, a physician and national pharmaceutical injury attorney, states, “much has changed over the past 10 years. Injured women now have resources available to understand treatment options available for mesh related complications. Unfortunately, TOT slings and mini-slings continue to be implanted.”

Her mission is to educate people on better individualized nutrition so they can take responsible steps to enjoy youthfulness well beyond their 20’s.

President Clinton nominated her to the women’s health white house conference.

Dr. Jan Hamilton’s research is a vital resource for optimal health and wellness, spanning topics from Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) to the prevention and treatment of obesity in special populations. Through her publications and her cutting edge presentations, she introduces the masses to crucial healthcare advances and tips to keeping their bodies in top-notch condition with global research findings.

However, it’s not only to healthcare patients and the everyday citizen she attempts to educate. By bringing a new nutritional dialog before physicians and task force board members, Dr. Jan Hamilton hopes that she can raise instill action into healthcare professionals and beyond. In this way, her research and medical contributions will ultimately find a larger footing for the betterment of all.

“With a new focus on Preventative Nutrition, I am seeking collaboration with top policy makers and trendsetters who focus on preventing debilitating disease. My motto is: Let’s die young, as late as possible,” Dr. Jan Hamilton says.

CMS Focus on Full Crisis Continuum

Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) sent a letter to State Medicaid Directors promoting a full continuum of crisis service.

PHOENIX, ARIZONA, UNITED STATES, November 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — This week, the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) sent a letter to State Medicaid Directors promoting a full continuum of crisis services to meet the needs of individuals with Serious Mental Illness (SMI) and children with Serious Emotional Disturbance (SED). On the same day, DHHS Secretary Alex Azar addressed the National Association of Medicaid Directors and announced an opportunity for short term residential treatment in IMDs using Medicaid funds within a demonstration project.

Secretary Azar stated, “Today, CMS will be sending a letter to state Medicaid directors laying out how to apply for waivers for flexibility … to treat serious mental illness. … [W]e will strongly emphasize that inpatient treatment is just one part of what needs to be a complete continuum of care, and participating states will be expected to take action to improve community-based mental health care. There are effective methods for treating the seriously mentally ill in the outpatient setting, which have a strong track record of success and which this administration supports. … Both tools are necessary and both are too hard to access today.”

Dr. Brian Hepburn with the National Association of State Mental Health Program Directors (NASMHPD) applauded these strong efforts which align with the key priorities of the Beyond Beds Technical Assistance Coalition Assessment Working Papers. NAMI’s Mary Giliberti called it a landmark day and a time to encourage states to improve outpatient services, including crisis stabilization services. She also thanked the administration for listening to the recommendations in the Interdepartmental Serious Mental Illness Coordinating Committee (ISMICC) report to Congress, “The Way Forward.”

Crisis Now co-chair David Covington stated, “With the recent passage of the National Suicide Prevention Hotline Improvement Act, and the strong call to action from CMS and DHHS leadership this week, the nation now has a clear vision to ensure an effective response for all in psychiatric emergency equal to medical care.” He also thanked the CrisisNow.com founding partners: NASMHPD, the National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, and the National Council for Behavioral Health. The Crisis Now: Transforming Services is Within

Our Reach task force recommendations were prominently featured in the CMS communication:

Improved Access to Services Across the Continuum of Care Including Crisis Stabilization Services
Adults with SMI and children with SED need access to a continuum of care since these conditions are often episodic and the severity of symptoms can vary over time. However, the only treatment options in many regions are inpatient care for acute treatment needs and outpatient care for less serious conditions and on-going maintenance therapy, with little availability of intermediate levels of care. As a result, individuals with serious mental health conditions often go into inpatient facilities or EDs when they could be better served in community-based settings. Furthermore, without supports needed to help transition from acute care back into their communities, adults with SMI are at heightened risk for relapse and readmission…

Strategies for ensuring … appropriate levels of care to meet their needs include encouraging use of evidence-based assessment tools, e.g. the LOCUS and CASII (or CALOCUS), that link clinical assessments with standardized "levels of care" using methods for matching the two. It is also important that the care provided to individuals with SMI or SED is trauma-informed. Another strategy is to increase availability of intensive outpatient and crisis stabilization programs designed to divert Medicaid beneficiaries from unnecessary stays in EDs and inpatient facilities as well as criminal justice involvement. Core elements of crisis stabilization programs include regional or statewide crisis call centers coordinating access to care in real time, centrally deployed mobile crisis units available 24 hours a day and seven days a week, and short-term, sub-acute residential crisis stabilization programs.

About RI International (d/b/a for Recovery Innovations, Inc.)
RI is a global organization that offers more than 50 programs throughout the United States and abroad, characterized by recovery and a focus on what’s strong, not what’s wrong.

The Pacific Mesothelioma Center Raises Over $143,000 for Mesothelioma Research at Annual 5K Walk for Meso!

The Pacific Mesothelioma Center raises mesothelioma awareness and funds for it's innovative mesothelioma research at annual 5K Walk for Meso.

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, November 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Pacific Mesothelioma Center at the Pacific Heart, Lung & Blood Institute marked its 7th annual 5K Walk/Hike for Mesothelioma on Oct 21, 2018, at the Paramount Ranch. With over 350 walkers, the event raised over $143,000 for malignant pleural mesothelioma research.

The 5K walk for mesothelioma plays a special role to many people for different reasons. For some, it offers them hope, that someday soon there will be better treatment options for this devastating disease. For others it offers them comfort, it reminds them of a family member or friend who died of mesothelioma too soon. And for mesothelioma warriors, who are able to see other warriors like themselves at the walk, it reminds them to keep up the fight.

Walkers arrived at The Paramount Ranch at around 9 AM and after receiving a complimentary T-shirt, and fruit products generously donated by Dole set out on the 5K or 1-mile hike.

After the walk, participants enjoyed a catered lunch by local Agoura Hills favorite Italia Deli, music by DJ Drew Young, and a program led by Master of Ceremonies CHiPS star Larry Wilcox. The live auction featured items such as a photo safari for two in South Africa and a Four Seasons Hotel luxury package. The opportunity drawing featured items such as gift baskets, dining and adventure certificates, and weekend getaways.

Many attendees walk to honor those they have lost to this devastating disease. Returning walker Delia states "I attended the walk to honor my late husband Sal, who courageously battled mesothelioma and sadly lost the fight this past March. I found the walk emotional and at the same time cathartic as it gave me hope that the money raised for research would one day find a cure. There are so very little research funds given to rare, aggressive and deadly cancers like mesothelioma.”

Lisa, a first-time walk attendee shared ” I organized Team Bruce for the walk to honor my dad Bruce Frederiksen who lost his battle earlier this year and to show support for everyone else whose lives have been devastated by this horrible disease. It was an emotionally charged day but I was so proud of the increased awareness this event brought to our cause and I'm thrilled about our successful fundraising for the research that will one day lead to a cure”.

The walk also brings together mesothelioma warriors including two-year mesothelioma survivor Tina who shared with us ”I keep telling my family that there are two fighters in this fight, me and mesothelioma and there’s only going to be one winner, and I’m going to be the winner”.

Donations for the 5K Walk for Mesothelioma are still being accepted at www.phlbi.org/5k-walk-for-mesothelioma.

About the PMC: Established in 2002, the Pacific Heart, Lung & Blood Institute (PHLBI) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

Chicago Attorney: Parents Are Left in the Dark About Birth Injuries

A Chicago attorney offered vital information to parents in an interview about what a hospital might not say about complications regarding labor and delivery.

The main thing we can do is get them sufficient money to pay for a better quality of life. These cases are especially complicated, and they’re always fought tooth and nail by the insurance companies.”

— Bob Baizer

CHICAGO , ILLINOIS , US, November 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — A Chicago attorney offered vital information to parents in an interview about what a hospital might not say about complications regarding labor and delivery.The interview took place on the AskTheLawyers.com™ Facebook page, and it featured injury attorney Bob Baizer. He explained that the three main types of birth injuries that he sees the most are cerebral palsy (caused by lack of oxygen at birth), shoulder dystocia (where the baby is too large to be delivered via vaginal birth, causing permanent arm or shoulder injuries), and infections that go untreated, leading to brain injuries.

He said that one major cause of all these injuries is the lack of a timely cesarean section.

“If the fetal monitor strip is not looking like it should, it's time to do a C section,” he said. “If you wait too long, the baby is denied oxygen. And that injures the baby's brain and that can cause horrible, horrible damages throughout the baby's life.”

He stressed that birth injuries have permanent effects for the entire family, and that parents have an overwhelming amount of responsibilities to consider. These include home modifications, medical treatments, and full-time care.

Baizer explained that doctors may not tell the parents if something went wrong during childbirth that caused complications later on. He had a case where a mother happened to notice something odd in her child’s medical records. She noticed it right before the eight-year statute of limitations expired.

He urges all parents of children with conditions like cerebral palsy and shoulder dystocia to speak to a birth injury attorney and explore their options.

“The main thing we can do is get them sufficient money to pay for a better quality of life. These cases are especially complicated, and they’re always fought tooth and nail by the insurance companies that are representing the doctors and also the hospitals,” he said in a news report.

Bob Baizer is an injury attorney and founding partner of Baizer Kolar Neiman P.C. He has more than 40 years of legal experience, and he focuses most of his practice on assisting victims of medical malpractice and vehicle accidents. He has obtained several multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements for victims of negligence.

Hickey Law Firm Announces $4.5 Million Verdict in Car Crash Survivor Action

Attorney John H. “Jack” Hickey

The verdict stands, and the insurance company was required to pay the verdict amount plus post judgment interest for a total of $5,087,699.93

This may not be the largest verdict in the world. But it is the largest verdict in the world for an 89-year-old woman who was involved in a car crash and died 4 1/2 years later of unrelated causes.”

— Jack Hickey

MIAMI, FLORIDA, US, November 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Florida’s Third District Court of Appeal on September 5, 2018 entered a PCA (per curiam affirmance) of the trial court’s order. That court on October 17, 2018 denied Defendant’s Motion for entry of an option making the PCA final. The verdict stands, and the insurance company was required to pay the verdict amount plus post judgment interest for a total of $5,087,699.93

Miami attorney Jack Hickey said: “This may not be the largest verdict in the world. But it is the largest verdict in the world for an 89-year-old woman who was involved in a car crash and died 4 1/2 years later of unrelated causes. The case then became a “survivor action” which is for the pain and suffering of a woman who never set foot in the courtroom and whose deposition was not taken. She was brought to life in the courtroom through the photos of Maria “the energizer bunny” before the crash, the medical records, and the testimony of Maria’s daughter and granddaughter. I am proud of the result and happy for my clients.”

Judge Michael Hanzman’s 41 Page order denying defendant’s post-trial motions for remittitur (asking the judge to reduce the verdict) and for new trial (asking for a do-over) said:

“As one court aptly noted, deciding an amount of damages to award for pain and suffering is an “attempt to measure that which is immeasurable…” Food Fair Stores, Inc. v. Morgan, 338 So. 2d 89, 92 (Fla. 2d DCA 1976). For this reason a jury’s award of such damages should be given even greater deference. See, e.g. Berger v. Philip Morris USA, Inc., 3:09 – CV-14157, 2016 WL 2620134, fn. 2 (M.D. Fla. May 5, 2016) (“where damages for pain and suffering are involved” court should be “deferential to ‘the enlightened conscience of the jury’ because these kinds of damages are ‘even further removed from exact calculation and certain measurement.’”);”

Jack Hickey: represented defendants for 17 years; for past 20 years has represented only people with life changing injuries; Past President of the Dade County Bar Association; Currently: Board of Governors of The Florida Bar, Board of Directors of the Florida Justice Association, and Board of Trustees of the American Association for Justice; Double Board Certified in Civil Trial and Admiralty and Maritime Law; Recognized by The Best Lawyers in America in the areas of Admiralty and Maritime and Personal Injury – Plaintiffs.
