U.K. Issues Warning On Metal Hip Implants

Warnings have been issued in the United Kingdom over metal-on-metal hip implant devices. The move followed an investigation there and adds to the growing concern about metal-on-metal medical device appliances and their adverse impact on human health.

Cruise Line Makes Offer To Costa Concordia Survivors

The cruise line behind this month’s historic crash has made financial offers to Costa Concordia cruise ship survivors to compensate for lost luggage and psychological trauma.

Friday, January 13, the Costa Concordia luxury liner struck the rocks off the Italian island of Giglio, tearing a 160-foot gash in its hull and causing the vessel to capsize. The Costa Concordia, owned by the Italian company Costa Crociere SpA, a subsidiary of Miami-based Carnival Corporation, was carrying 4,200 passengers and crew at the time of the crash that left 16 dead and at least 22 passengers and crew missing, including an American couple.

Costa Concordia Owner Had Early Word Of Accident

The owner of the doomed Costa Concordia cruise ship had early word of the historic accident, according to emerging reports. The liner, owned by the Italian company, Costa Crociere SpA, is operated by Costa Cruises, a unit of U.S.-based Carnival Corporation.

Testimony presented by Costa Crociere to the Italian Senate revealed that it was aware—within minutes and, shockingly, more than one hour before the 4,200 passengers were told to evacuate—that the ship was flooding as a result of a crash off the Tuscan coast, wrote The Wall Street Journal. The testimony delivered by Pier Luigi Foschi, chief executive of Costa Crociere was, said The Journal, the first time the company publicly acknowledged that Captain Francesco Schettino had been keeping the company advised on crisis events.

Democratic Lawmakers Seek Hearings On Transvaginal Mesh, Lap-Band

House Democratic lawmakers are seeking Congressional hearings on transvaginal mesh and Allergan Lap-Band medical device products. The group says the devices post hazards to patients.

Representative Henry Waxman (Democrat-California) and three fellow lawmakers have asked key Republicans in the House Energy and Commerce Committee to hold the hearing and order involved device makers to provide documentation, said Bloomberg News.

Women suing Yaz, Yasmin maker, Bayer, for injuries they alleged to have suffered from the controversial birth control pills, have urged U.S. District Judge, David Herndon, to review evidence pointing to conflicts of interest at the agency, wrote The Madison Record.

Kessler, an expert witness for the plaintiffs, noted panel conflicts in an expert opinion in which he stated, after reviewing internal Bayer documents, that Bayer wrongfully withheld safety information from the agency, said Pharmalot.

The shamed Costa Concordia captain who abandoned ship in Friday’s deadly luxury liner crash has been ordered to house arrest.

Captain Francesco Schettino claims his abandoning the doomed Costa Concordia cruise ship was accidental, that he slipped and fell onto a lifeboat while helping passengers exit the ship that went aground late Friday on the rocks of Giglio Island, an island off Italy’s Italian coast.
