Digital Medical Imaging Center Now Offering Non-Surgical Biopsies

Miami, FL (PRWEB) April 18, 2014

A biopsy is a minimally-invasive procedure that removes a sample of abnormal tissue that has been previously detected for accurate diagnosis and treatment planning. This type of procedure is most commonly used to diagnose, and sometimes treat, lumps found in the breast tissue. The Center for Diagnostic Imaging of Miami announces a new biopsy procedure that does not require surgery.

Known as an ultrasound biopsy or a stereotactic biopsy, it may be performed after abnormalities have been detected in the breast as a result of a breast self-exam, mammogram or other imaging procedure. There are several different biopsy procedures available to ensure the most precise removal and analysis for an individuals condition. Many of these procedures are performed with ultrasound or MRI guidance to ensure precise needle placement while minimizing damage to surrounding healthy tissue.

A special automated needle is used for an image-guided biopsy. A specialty trained radiologist uses ultrasound, MRI, or mammography to view the breast tissue as he carefully guides the needle into the abnormal area. The needle then removes a small amount of tissue from the abnormality.

These non-surgical biopsies are done as an outpatient procedure and only require local anesthesia. The specific type of breast biopsy to be received depends on the location of the abnormality and the initial consultation with the radiologist.

About Center for Diagnostic Imaging:

The Center for Diagnostic Imaging Miami staff is dedicated to providing the highest level of efficient and excellent care for each patient who walks through their door.

The center, known for their reputation as one of the best full body PET scan Miami facilities in the state, is owned and managed by physicians, radiologists, technicians, and other highly trained and qualified staff.

Mirena IUD Lawsuit Filed by Parker Waichman LLP Alleges Bayer Failed to Warn about Risk of Spontaneous Migration, Uterine Perforation

New York, NY (PRWEB) April 18, 2014

Parker Waichman LLP, a national law firm dedicated to protecting the rights of victims injured by defective drugs and medical devices, has filed a lawsuit alleging that the Mirena IUD is harmful and caused injuries in a California woman. The suit was filed on March 27th in the Superior Court of New Jersey Law Division, Bergen County (In Re Mirena Litigation Case No. 297, Civil Action No. L-2903-14). Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals, Inc., Bayer Pharma AG and Bayer OY have been named as Defendants.

According to the Complaint, the Plaintiff was implanted with Mirena IUD in February 2009. The product is an intrauterine device that releases the hormone levonorgestrel to prevent pregnancy; once inserted, it can remain in the uterus for up to five years, the suit states. According to the lawsuit, the Defendants have admitted that [i]t is not known exactly how Mirena works. Additionally, the package labeling does not warn about spontaneous migration of Mirena, but only states that migration may occur if the uterus is perforated during insertion.

In the Plaintiffs case, it is alleged that the initial procedure was tolerated well and there was no sign that her uterus was perforated during insertion. However, in March 2012 the Plaintiff underwent a laparoscopy to remove the Mirena IUD located intra-abdominally. The suit alleges that the Defendants negligent and wrongful actions are to blame for the Plaintiffs injuries. Allegedly, she suffered severe and permanent physical injuries, endured substantial pain and suffering, incurred significant expenses for medical care and treatment and will continue to incur such expenses in the future. The suit also alleges that the Plaintiff has suffered from lost wages and loss of earning capacity.

The lawsuit also point out that Bayer has misrepresented Mirena in the past. According to the Complaint, the company was contacted in 2009 by the Department of Health and Human Services Division of Drug Marketing, Advertising, and Communications (DDMAC) for making unsubstantiated claims about the device while failing to mention its risks in the companys Simple Style program.

The Complaint notes that, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the most serious side effects associated with the Mirena IUD are:

Perforation of the uterine wall
Embedment of the device in the uterine wall
Intrauterine pregnancy
Ectopic pregnancy
Group A streptococcal sepsis
Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID)

The attorneys at Parker Waichman LLP are actively involved in the Mirena IUD litigation. Partner Raymond C. Silverman has been appointed Co-Lead Counsel in the Mirena IUD multicounty litigation centralized in Bergen County, New Jersey. Matthew J. McCauley, Senior Litigation Counsel at Parker Waichman LLP, was previously appointed Co-Lead Counsel in the Mirena IUD multidistrict litigation in New York. Mr. McCauley also co-chairs the American Association for Justice (AAJ) Mirena IUD Litigation Group. The Group is actively involved in exchanging educational materials and medical literature in order to best represent victims.

Parker Waichman LLP continues to offer free lawsuit consultations to victims of Mirena IUD birth control. If you or a loved one experienced complications following the use of this device, please visit the firm’s Mirena

Top Los Angeles Auto Accident Lawyers Mourn the Passing of One of LAPD’s Motor Cycle Officer’s After Being Hit by a DUI Driver

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 17, 2014

Los Angeles personal injury lawyer, Della Shaker, Esq., is distressed by the wrongful death of one of LAPD’s finest motorcycle officers who was struck by a suspected DUI driver while stopped at a traffic light in Sun Valley around 5:30 p.m., Saturday, April 5, 2014.

On Saturday, April 5, 2014, Amy Powell of Los Angeles News, KABC-TV Los Angeles, CA, reported that a Los Angeles police motorcycle officer was listed in critical condition after being pinned between two vehicles in the Sun Valley area Saturday afternoon. The report went on to state that Investigators say the officer was stopped at a traffic light when he was struck from behind by a red SUV travelling at a high rate of speed. The officer was pinned in between two vehicles. (Sun Valley crash leaves LAPD cop critically injured)

However, days after the accident and after being rushed to Providence Holy Cross Medical Center in Mission Hills, Officer Chris Cortijo’s condition, the victim in the auto vs. motorcycle accident, apparently turned for the worse.

On Wednesday, April 9, 2014, Carollyn Nguyen of Los Angeles News, KABC-TV Los Angeles, CA, reported that “The LAPD motorcycle officer who was struck by a suspected DUI driver in Sun Valley over the weekend has died.” It was also mentioned in the report that Officer Cortijo was a 26-year LAPD veteran who worked at the department’s Valley Traffic Division. Police Chief Charlie Beck said Officer Cortijo arrested more than 3,000 DUI suspects over the course of his career. (LAPD Sun Valley crash: Motorcycle officer dies of his injuries)

Dedicated Los Angeles auto accident lawyer Della Shaker, Esq., is saddened by the loss of an innocent life, especially an officer of the law who dedicated his life to protecting the public from DUI drivers. In a very ironic fashion, adds Atty. Shaker, Officer Cortijo suffered wrongful death in the hands of a suspected DUI driver, the evil that he diligently fought against in order to protect all of us.

“Auto accidents, especially Drunk Driving accidents are very devastating and life changing not only to the victims but their families as well. In the case of Officer Cortijo, the family members have the right to seek compensation for all their damages, from property damage, actual medical costs, loss of life’s earnings, funeral expenses, loss of consortium, loss of love and support, pain and suffering and other non-monetary losses, among others. However, regardless of the heirs’ claims, it obviously cannot replace the value of a loved one,” opines Ms. Shaker.

Ms. Shaker adds, “This is why, in LA Injury Advocates, we make it our professional commitment, to diligently pursue and put to justice, negligent parties and other third parties, including DUI drivers who cause all kinds of traffic accidents, in order to make sure that they pay a high price for their recklessness and to serve as deterrent to other automobile drivers and motorists to always be careful in operating their vehicles, because lives of innocent people are always at stake.”
