Joint replacements are the #1 expenditure of Medicare. The process of approving these medical devices is flawed according to the Institute of Medicine. It is time for patients' voices to be heard as stakeholders and for public support for increased medical device industry accountability and heightened protections for patients. Post-market registry. Product warranty. Patient/consumer stakeholder equity. Rescind industry pre-emptions/entitlements. All clinical trials must report all data.

'The Bleeding Edge' Netflix documentary July 27, 2018 (Friday)

"I don't know how anyone could let this happen."
JUL 23, 2018


Years after the first reports of hazardous effects of birth control device Essure—and days before a Netflix documentary about it drops—manufacturer Bayer announced it will stop selling the controversial implant. The company framed its decision as based on poor sales, but the timing is hard to ignore: The Bleeding Edge, a documentary about medical devices gone awry that uses Essure as a prime example, drops on July 27. Essure was pulled July 20.
"We continue to stand behind the product's safety and efficacy," Bayer said in a statement. The company has maintained for years that Essure, a kind of metal coil that is implanted in the Fallopian tubes to block sperm, is safe, despite facing roughly 16,000 lawsuits from women who say they suffered ill effects after using it, including organ perforation, chronic and excessive pain, and unintended pregnancies. Yet Essure was discontinued due to a "business decision," the company said, citing "a decline in sales."
Meanwhile, Friday marks the launch of The Bleeding Edge, a Netflix documentary from the creators of The Hunting Ground. The Hollywood Reporter describes it as "a terrifying eye-opener," and Indiewire writes that it "stands a good chance at enlightening more people who have been (or might be) hoodwinked." The documentary isn't just about Essure—it focuses on a handful of medical devices that have caused major complications, including "vaginal mesh" and hip replacements—but Essure is framed as a banner example of good intentions gone haywire.

When it comes to Essure, Bayer has suffered a particularly nasty year. Essure has been pulled or withdrawn from every country where it had been offered outside of the United States—Canada, the U.K., the Netherlands, you name it—and in April, the FDA announced it would be restricting sales of Essure to ensure that all women who consider it are fully aware of the risks. (Restricting sales, in this case, means only selling the device to facilities that agreed to review a set checklist with doctors and patients.) That said: "The FDA continues to believe that the benefits of the device outweigh its risks," the statement noted.

Once billed as the only permanent contraceptive device on the market, Essure has since become a buzzword for unexpected complications. On Facebook and other social media sites, there exists a growing community of Essure-affected women who congregate to share their experiences. Between 2002 and 2017, close to 30,000 women filed formal reports of "adverse effects" with the FDA after using Essure.

You can stream The Bleeding Edge on Netflix from July 27.

  3. Happiness is all i see now I never thought that I will be cured from HERPES virus again. I have been suffering from a deadly disease (HERPES) for the past 3 years now, I had spent a lot of money going from one places to another, from churches to churches, hospitals have been my home every day residence. Constant checks up have been my hobby not until this faithful day, I was searching through the internet, I saw a testimony on how Dr Ogudugu helped someone in curing his HERPES disease, quickly I copied his email which is greatogudugu@gmail.com just to give him a test I spoke to him, he asked me to do some certain things which I did, he told me that he is going to provide the herbal cure to me, which he did, then he asked me to go for medical checkup after some days after using the herbal cure, behold I was free from the deadly disease, he only asked me to post the testimony through the whole world, faithfully am doing it now, please brothers and sisters, he is great, I owe him in return. If you are having a similar problem just email him on ( greatogudugu@gmail.com ) or you can whatsApp his mobile number on +27663492930

  4. Dear beneficiary,

    RE: Your Swift ATM credit card € $ 10,000

    You can make a lot of verses with the fast credit card system through the (A.T.M) automated platter system, which favors direct access to make the withdrawal of funds from any international banks in the world. The Federal Government under the Ministry of Finance with the World Bank and the IMF (International Monitory Fund) has approved this.

    Administrative measure resulting from various complaints / petitions received by the beneficiaries, which require the delays in obtaining their contract / inheritance fund as expected. Please be informed that this is real and not a fake card so be assured that the money will be cleared immediately as soon as a withdrawal is concerned. I made everything necessary

    Arrangements to send the card to your nominated post address. All other documents, such as your letter of recommendation and certificate from the Economic Finance Department, confirm that these funds are free from pledges or charges and are clean, clear and non-criminal.

    This ATM card contains a maximum of € $ 10,000 . And you have a daily withdrawal limit of € 2,000 dollars. For your information, you are responsible for the cost of sending the ATM to you, the ATM card will be shipped via a World Delivery Service to ensure that the card is sent to you Wherever you are are somewhere in the world, but before I continue, I want you to reaffirm the details below. The receptionist, Mr Barr.Femi Ade, will call you as soon as the reply is received.
