DECEMBER 3, 2015

The District Court issued an Order approving the Consent Order To Establish Guidelines for Distributions From The Class 7 Silicone Material Claimants’ Fund. This means that the Court has authorized approved disease claims in Class 7 to be paid and has approved the parties’ agreed interpretation of “marshaling.” The order will become final once the 30-day time period for appeals has expired and no appeals have been filed. Payments can begin once the Order is final. This means that payments will not begin until sometime in January 2016 or thereafter.

CAC FILES MOTION ASKING FOR APPROVAL TO PAY CLASS 7 CLAIMS AND TO RESOLVE THE DISPUTE CONCERNING PREVIOUSLY DENIED “MARSHALING” CLAIMS

On Friday, May 22, 2015, the CAC filed a proposed Consent Order asking the Court to authorize payment of disease claims for Class 7 claimants. Most claimants in Class 7 have been previously paid a $600 Expedited Release Payment, a Foreign Gel Claimant Payment, or a $3,000 Cash-Out Offer. Claimants that rejected the Cash-Out Offer and elected for a full disease review have been waiting for payment on their approved disease claim. With the filing of the motion, the CAC hopes that these claimants can now be paid once the Consent Order is entered by the Court.

In addition, the CAC has reached an agreement with Dow Corning regarding thousands of Class 7 claims that were previously denied by the SF-DCT on the grounds that the claimant allegedly had not “marshaled” their recoveries from their primary manufacturer (Bristol, Baxter). Under this agreement, claims will be reviewed to determine if the claimant was eligible to apply for disease compensation from the Revised Settlement Program. If so, then that claimant cannot apply for the same disease in Class 7. However, if a claimant was not eligible to receive benefits for a particular disease in the RSP, then that claimant may seek compensation from Class 7.

For example, if a claimant was an Other Registrant in the RSP, the only disease option she was eligible for was Disease Option 2 (called Long Term Benefits). Other Registrants were not eligible for Disease Option 1 (Fixed Benefits) and diseases like ACTD. These claimants may now seek compensation for Disease Option 1 from Class 7.

The SF-DCT will re-review the claims that were previously denied and will send eligible claimants either a $600 Expedited Release Payment or $3,000 Cash-Out Payment. The Cash-Out Payment is available only to those claimants who submitted a disease claim in 2006. Claimants may reject the Cash-Out Payment and instead elect for a full disease review; however, if the claim is not approved, they will not be eligible for the Cash-Out Offer again.

 

MAY 4, 2015

The MDL Common Benefit Trust fund has announced that it will offer women who were not compensated for Explantation in either the MDL or Dow Corning Settlement a chance to apply for $5,000 explant payment. For more information about this program, please click here. Please note that this program is not affiliated with either the RSP or Dow Corning Settlement Plan.

If you are having difficulty getting your medical insurance to cover the cost of the explant surgery, there is a new resource for women. The Insurance Coverage Assistance Program will be available to provide advice and assistance on how to assess this Medicare, Medicaid, and health care coverage for issues related to breast implants. This program is to be operated by the National Center for Health Research, a consumer-oriented non-profit group in Washington, D.C., that has helped women seek insurance coverage for breast implant removal. The National Center currently operates the breastimplantinfo.org website. You may email them at info@breastimplantinfo.org with your name and email address for more information, including their toll-free number. If you do not have access to email, you can call them at 202-223-4000.

FEBRUARY 10, 2015

On January 27, 2015, the Court of Appeals reversed the District Court’s authorization to make 50% partial Premium Payments. Fortunately, the SF-DCT has already made 98% of the partial Premium Payments to eligible, approved claimants. This money does not need to be repaid. Claimants can keep the partial Premium Payment checks that were issued to them. Unfortunately, the remaining 2% of claimants who did not receive their partial Premium Payment check (or returned it for reissuance, or who had lost checks) are on hold pending either a consensual resolution to pay their claims or a court order. A copy of the ruling is under the tab “Court Orders.”

February 10, 2015,

CAC filed a petition for rehearing on this ruling, asking the Court of Appeals to reconsider or rehear the issue based on what the CAC believes are two serious legal errors. A copy of the petition is under the tab “Appeals to the 6th Circuit” and then under the sub-tab “Premium Payments.”

New Silicone Breast Implant Approved

Written by lisaspitzer on . Posted in Dow Corning Breast Implant Stories and Sharing

Breast Implant Helpline keeps you updated on all breast implant news. Years after the Dow Corning Silicone Breast Implant disaster a new silicone breast implant hits the market. The FDA has  approved a  new silicone gel breast implant from Johnson & Johnson.

 Next Generation breast Implant?

The Food and Drug Administration said it has  approved a next-generation silicone breast implant from Mentor, a unit of New Brunswick-based Johnson & Johnson. Ladies let’s remember who this is. The same folks that bring you the vaginal mesh implant that is ruing lives nationwide. We watch with skepticism. The company’s MemoryShape breast implant uses a cross-linking gel design that the FDA says is firmer than previous implants. FDA regulators approved the new implant for breast enhancement and reconstruction in women at least 22 years old.

Can Silicone Breast Implants Make A Comeback?

Silicone gel implants have made a comeback recently after safety concerns kept them off the market for nearly 25 years.

The FDA banned sales of silicone breast implants in 1992, saying manufacturers had not provided enough medical data showing their safety and effectiveness. At the time, there were worries about a connection to a variety of diseases, including cancer and lupus. Alarming cases of ruptures added to the concern. Women are still waiting on settlements from the Dow Corning Class Actions and a new breast implant explant program has been announced.

An Overview

The FDA said Friday it approved Mentor’s new implant based on studies tracking six years of data in 955 women. The agency said complications with Mentor’s MemoryShape implants were similar to those from previously approved silicone gel implants.

 New Requirements

FDA is requiring Mentor to meet a number of requirements in connection with the new approval, including:

• Tracking the 955 women with the new implant

• Conducting a new study of 2,500 women who receive the new implant

• Evaluating women’s comprehension and perception of the implant’s labeling

• Analyzing any implants that are removed from women and returned to the manufacturer

More than one in five women who get implants for breast enhancement will need to have them replaced within five years, accord to an FDA analysis of company data released in 2011. Despite that relatively high failure rate, FDA regulators concluded that the silicone-gel implants are basically safe, as long as women understand they come with complications. Some critics of the implants say the failure rate may be even higher, since many women have dropped out of the company studies.

We will be watching.

You may have received a letter from the Dow Corning Trust explaining a Breast Implant explant program. For help in understanding your rights and to speak to a breast implant explant lawyer contact the Breast Implant Helpline today

There is a Breast Implant Explant Program Deadline

The final deadline to submit an Explant Claim to the SF-DCT is June 2, 2014. You must have acceptable Proof of Manufacturer before you can be considered for the Explant benefit. The Explant benefit is $5,000.00. To qualify for this benefit, you must have your Dow Corning implants removed and not replaced with silicone.

It can take six months or longer to schedule an explant surgery and to obtain the necessary medical records from your surgeon or hospital.  If you are eligible  to apply for this benefit, you should keep this deadline date in mind. Do not  wait  to discuss your  explant surgery with your doctor. This should be done as soon as possible.

What Is Breast Implant  Explant Surgery?

Breast explant surgery  is mplant removal. Explant surgery is the process by which your breast implants are removed from the breasts. Depending upon the reason for the surgery, additional material may be removed.

Dow Corning Explant Benefits Notice

EXPLANT DEADLINE IS JUNE 2, 2014

The Settlement Facility will mail letters to Class 5 and 6 claimants on April 26, 2013 reminding them of the Explant Deadline of June 2, 2014.

What is the Explant Deadline? To be eligible for the $5,000 Explant benefit (Class 5 only), you must have your Dow Corning breast implant removed by June 2, 2014 and you cannot receive another silicone gel breast implant after that. To file a claim, you must submit the Explant Form and the operative statement from the Explant surgery. Only claimants in Class 5 and 6.1 (non-U.S. Dow Corning breast implant claimants) are eligible for the Explant Payment.

June 2, 2014 may seem like a long time away, but our experience has been that it often takes up to 6 months or more to schedule an appointment with your surgeon, schedule the surgery, and obtain the necessary medical reports (such as the Operative Report) to submit a claim by the deadline.

If your Dow Corning breast implant is not removed by June 2, 2014, then you cannot apply for the Explant benefit.There is still money available to help you remove your defective Dow implants. There is money available to help you remove your defective breast implants

 

Drugs and Devices Harming Women, VaginaL Mesh, Mirena IUD, And Others

Written by lisaspitzer on . Posted in Dow Corning Breast Implant Stories and Sharing, Drugs and Devices Harming Women

There have been so many drugs and devices targeting women over the years with so many ending up in FDA warnings, recalls and resulting in lawyers in the courtroom arguing for justice for 1000's of injured women. To name a few; equal and maybe far surpassing the Dow Corning Breast implant Class Action is the Prolene vaginal mesh. This device, used by OB GYN's for urinary incotinence and  uterine, bladder and bowel prolapse, has been falling apart in women. The result has been pain suffering and  the destruction of lives and marriages.

The failing mesh can erode thru the vaginal wall or even into the bladder or bowel, The pain is relentless and infections are ongoing. Many women are having a difficult time finding sympathetic doctors to remove the mesh as urinary incotinence returns and re prolapse occurr.

Two others are both manufactured by Bayer Pharmaceuticals. Yaz birth control pills has warnings for blood clots in young women, strokes, pulmonary embolisms and deep vein thrombosis. The latest is the popular Mirena IUD.  The Mirena can stay inplanted for up to five years but  can gravitate or migrate and cause uterine and abdomen perforations. The stories of lives ruined goes on and on. Even the metat on metal hip replacements like the recalled DePuy and Stryker are more detrimental to women sdue to the smaller frames.

Every day we hear about more  dangerous drugs and medical devices. Our T.V's are filled with lawyer ads seeking injured women. These products like Fosamax, birth control medications and uterine devices; the transvaginal mesh and metal-on-metal hip implants all focus on women as their market. Eventually these products  end up with warnings, are recalled and are consolidated in a multi-district litigation to defend 1000's of harmed women. In some cases they are fatal.

These products we see lawyer ds for include: Yaz, Transvaginal Mesh, Mirena IUD, Fosamax, DePuy Hip Replacement  and others  are flashing cross our T.V screens " have you been injured by" "Call th law firm of….." We encourage women to file their lawsuits, not necessarily with the lawyer they see on T.V but with a qualified experienced class action lawsuit lawyer who understands the MDL process and has experience in these matters. Be sure the lawyer you choose is not just taking your case to get his piece off the top and sending it to a"buddy".

The Breast Implant Helpline's new mission is to help all women find justice against manufacturer who choose profits over  accurate warnings, and direct you to a dangerous drugs and devices lawyer for women.

 

 

Dow Corning Ruptures, Dow Corning Breast Implant Claims, SFDCT

Dow Corning Ruptures

Dow Corning implants were originated in the 1940’s by Dow Corning Chemical Company. The implants were found at the University of California Los Angeles in 1995 that the silicone could be expected to be a bioactive material and immunological data at the experimental level was compelling. The implants will continue to rupture and leak within 10 years of placement in 1995, yet the Commissioner stated the ruptured silicone implant would range from 5 to 51%. We do not know with any confidence where within that range the real rupture rate lies. They felt that even 5% was too high a risk to allow use of silicone in humans.

The Canadian General of Plastic Surgery found after a 12-year period of use, 40% of the 1,717 silicone Dow Corning breast implants after six years of use had a rupture rate and 95% after 12 years of use. In the Annals of Plastic Surgery in 1995, it was found that 71% of the 300 patients examined had either ruptured silicone or silicone bleed and 63% of 592 patients were found to have rupture of the Dow Corning implants. This led to the conclusion that most implants will lose their integrity of the silicone shell between 8 and 14 years, which could leave free silicone both intra and extracapsular in the breast.

In 1956, Dow Corning Chemical researchers knew that liquid silicone injected in the body will migrate to all major organs, including the spleen, liver, heart and brain. They also confirmed in 1970 silicone after injection will migrate to the bone marrow of animals and change brain weight. It also showed that silicone particulate will migraine from a human finger joint into the lymph node.

Also found by research from the ruptured Dow Corning implants was that silicone produces abnormalities in the immune system functioning. Elevated T helper cells to T suppressor cells were found. In 1992, the General Toxicology Industrial Health activities of natural killer cells were suppressed in 50% of the women with silicone implants of Dow Corning nature, putting women at a higher risk for developing other problems. Silicone produces a classifiable possible new disease within autoimmune systems. Tens of thousands of women had their implants removed after over 20 years. They sought help for their symptoms which included autoimmune dysfunction, connective tissue disorders, scleroderma and fibromyalgia; however, at this time the FDA has reviewed these symptoms as being consistent or correlated with silicone gel implants. Neither cancer or autoimmune disorders in 2012 have been shown to be associated directly with ruptured Dow Corning implants.

The settlements for the Dow Corning rupture claims resulted in over 100,000 settlements to women, permanently closed on December 15, 2010. The Dow settlement from the Dow Corning Trust Fund was processing classified claims for disease and explant benefits. The deadline to file and explant claim if you have your Dow Corning implants removed and not replaced with silicone is June 2, 2014. Deadline to file either a claim or expedited relief claim is June 3, 2019.

Dr. Linder has presented with multiple cases of Dow Corning ruptured silicone implants, including having patients referred directly from Dow Corning in Michigan. Upon taking these patients into the operating room, it was found clinically that these patients often present with severe Baker IV capsulation with hardened scar tissue contracture, visible distortion, pain and hardened, distorted, disfigured breasts. Removal of the silicone implant material is not as easy as it looks. Dr. Linder performs the incision usually either through the inframammary approach or periareolar.

After making the incision through the skin, electrocautery dissection is carried down through the glandular pocket. These implants are most commonly placed subglandular. At this time, the capsule is usually rock hard solid, thicker than chalk, and requires often a blade in order to cut through and remove it from the overlying tissue. Breast tissue itself is often difficult to find, as there is significant mastitis associated with silicone gel bleed directly into the surrounding breast tissue. Many of these patients have been seen to have complete disintegration of the shell of the thin Dow Corning implants which no longer exist. The calcifications and granulomas are extraordinary, and the difficulty in removing the entire shell is extraordinarily difficult, including the posterior wall.

Only Board Certified Plastic Surgeons should be performing open capsulectomies with silicone Dow Corning implant rupture material removal and reconstruction. When removing these implants permanently without replacement, it is important to use a drainage tube for 7 to 10 days with patients on oral antibiotics in order to prevent seroma formation. It is not unlikely that these patients will have a slightly elevated temperature over the next 7 to 10 days with associated slight toxemia from the silicone spreading through the bloodstream, especially for the first 72 hours. The challenge of removing these implants is equally as amazing as the intraoperative photographs. The following shows intraoperative photographs of ruptured silicone Dow Corning material being removed from the breast, the Dow Corning implants with the patch materials on the posterior wall, as well as the massive amounts of calcified granulomas from the capsule removed around the implant bag or internal silicone viscous liquid.

Finally, in 1992, the FDA approved adjunct study protocols for silicone gel implants for reconstruction revision patients. In 1995, major manufacturers of silicone and other implants, including Dow Corning Corp. have faced over 19,000 legal suits for defective breast implants which forced Dow Corning into filing bankruptcy. The FDA has now approved implants of silicone nature for women 22 years of age and older, as well as all women having breast reconstruction for cancer purposes. They do warn women that there are certain risks involved, including rupture, encapsulation, scar tissue contracture, and the requirement for replacement of the implants due to non-lifetime devices. The indications of a ruptured Dow Corning implant are similar to those of the other gels, including severe breast pain, chemical sensitivity, achy or swollen joints, fatigue, rashes, swollen breasts, loss of upper pole fullness, increased pain or scar tissue contracture, fever, erythema and redness.

About Silicone Breast Implants
There are two types of breast implants. Silicone gel-filled breast implants have a silicone outer shell that is filled with silicone gel. Saline filled breast implants contain a silicone outer shell filled with a sterile saltwater (saline) solution.
Both types of implants have had adverse affects to the human immune system.implants   Any amount of silicone, no matter how small, can cause your body to have an internal allergic reaction or toxicity disease. Medical Studies have shown that there is probably nothing that you can place in the human body that the body will not attempt to break down. Silicone implants in the body are broken down over time through a lipolysis reaction. Most silicone-filled breast implants leak or rupture within 8 to 15 years.

  •  joint pain with swelling
  •  skin rashes,
  • face rashes,
  • numbness and tingling in hands and toes,
  • chronic fatigue,
  • fibromyalgia,
  • muscle pain,
  • abnormal blood work

women who had received breast implants should notify their doctors of any changes in their breasts because of a possible association with a rare type of lymphoma. In breast implant patients, ALCL has occurred in the scar capsule adjacent to the implant.

Symptoms of breast implant lymphoma include:

  •     Pain
  •     Lumps
  •     Swelling
  •     Asymmetry that developed after their initial surgical sites were fully healed

The myths and controversy of Silicone Breast Implants
Breast Implants were introduced onto the market in 1970’s, women were told their implants would last forever. For someone who had under gone mastectomies due to Breast Cancer, they were getting a new lease in life; they had a chance to feel like a woman again. Others, whose breast unfortunately never fully matured, felt they finally had a chance to love their bodies and figure. Everyone was under the impression that these implants were indestructible and there would never be any complications. Unfortunately, we were all misled.
Problems relating to breast implants began to surface in the late 1980’s. They were finally removed from the market by the FDA in 1992.New studies have proven that Breast Implants are not lifetime devices. The longer you have breast implants, the more likely it is that complications will occur. Even though the FDA has made these claims, many physicians still do not believe there is any connection to autoimmune disease and Breast Implants. To this day, most women had no idea that their sicknesses and diseases could have been related to their silicone implants.

MARCH 30, 2012

During the move, the phones, emails and access to the "My Claim" feature on the SF-DCT website will be shut down from March 27th to April 2nd, 2012. This means representatives will not be able to answer any calls or emails during this time. Please be patient during this transition.

P.O. Box 52429, Houston, Texas 77052-2429

UPDATE ON PREMIUM PAYMENT MOTION

The court heard oral argument from the parties on the Finance Committee's motion requesting authority to make Premium Payments. As we anticipated in previous newsletters, the court did not rule on the motion at the hearing. The matter is now under consideration by the court. We do not know when the court will issue a ruling. As soon as an order is entered, we will send out a newsletter and update our website with the information.

The briefs are on the CAC website (www.tortcomm.org) under the heading "Pending Motions." If you are not receiving the Enewsletters via Email and you have registered your email address, please check your spam filters to make sure the emails are not being filtered out.

JANUARY 5, 2012

The briefing on the Finance Committee's motion requesting approval of Premium Payments to approved Rupture and Disease claimants is now complete. Copies of the briefs are available on the CAC's website. The hearing on this matter will be on January 31st. For more information, please read the January 5, 2012 e-newsletter available on this site.

April 2012 Updates – Dow Settlement lawyers Announce

The SF-DCT has moved, and their new address effective April 3, 2012 is:

SF-DCT
3200 SW Freeway, Ste. 1500
Houston, TX  77027

Their telephone number remains the same: 1-866-874-6099.
Their P.O. Box also remains the same: P.O. Box 52429, Houston, TX  77052

Premium Payments

Regarding Premium Payments: the matter of if and when the SF-DCT issues premium payments is now under consideration by the Court. We do not know when the Court will issue a ruling. As soon as an order is entered, we will post it on our website and contact any potentially eligible LCHB clients.

Regarding Class 7 Payments: Because some unreviewed Class 7 claims were found during an audit at the SF-DCT, the SF-DCT cannot issue any Class 7 payments until those unreviewed claims are processed and given the one year time period within which to cure deficiencies. As of this date, the SF-DCT cannot predict the exact date when Class 7 payments are going to be made, but it will probably be at least another year before they can issue payments.
