Power Morcellator News: Bernstein Liebhard LLP Comments on Recent ABC Interview With Couple Seeking to Ban Uterine Morcellation

New York, New York (PRWEB) August 11, 2014

As the controversy surrounding the use of power morcellators (http://www.injurybeacon.com/power-morcellator/) continues to grow, Bernstein Liebhard LLP notes that nearly a year has passed since a pair of doctors first launched their campaign to ban uterine morcellation. In an interview that aired on ABC News last week, Dr. Hooman Noorchashm and his wife, Dr. Amy Reed, called the past year a whirlwind and discussed their efforts to bring attention to this important public health issue.*

Dr. Reed, the mother of six, was diagnosed with stage 4 uterine cancer after she underwent uterine morcellation to remove fibroids last October. The realization that the cancer was allegedly spread by the power morcellator used in her surgery prompted Dr. Noorchashm to launch a petition on Change.org that seeks to ban such procedures. As of August 11th, more than 51,000 people had signed on in support of his campaign.**

This couple deserves so much credit for bringing attention to the alleged danger associated with power morcellators. Without their campaign, its doubtful that federal regulators would have done anything to address these risks, says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is seeking to hear from women who allegedly experienced the spread of uterine cancer due to power morcellators.

Power Morcellators and Uterine Cancer

Months after Dr. Noorchashm launched his petition, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) issued an alert discouraging doctors from using power morcellators to shred tissue during minimally-invasive gynecological surgeries, due to the risk that the devices can spread undetected cancer cells into a womans peritoneal cavity. This can result in an upstaging of the cancer, greatly reducing a patients chances of long-term survival. At the time, the FDA estimated that 1 in 350 women with uterine fibroids actually have undetected uterine sarcoma cells within that tissue.

In July, both Dr. Noorchashm and Dr. Reed told their story to a panel of FDA advisors convened to investigate the matter. When the couple ended their remarks, people assembled in the gallery to observe the meeting responded with a standing ovation.***

Just weeks after the meeting, Johnson & Johnson decided to recall several power morcellators manufactured by its Ethicon, Inc. unit.**** Highmark, Inc., one of the nations largest Blue Cross/Blue Shield insurance providers, announced it would no longer cover uterine morcellation.*****

As their crusade against power morcellators gained momentum, Dr. Reed continued to fight her cancer.

According to the ABC News report, she has shown no signs of the disease following surgery and six rounds of chemo. Dr. Reed hopes to go back to work at some point in the next few weeks. Both she and her husband also plan to continue their fight, with Dr. Noorchashm telling the network that he intends to focus on changing the way the FDA approves medical devices like power morcellators.

Women whose uterine cancers were allegedly spread via a power morcellator may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other injury related damages.

Access To Care: WWAV & LSU Health Sciences

The human papilloma virus (HPV) is the leading cause of cervical cancer; in the United States alone, the incidence of an HPV infection in women between the ages of 18-22 is 50%. These statistics by themselves are enough to cause alarm. Now consider the factors involved in a women going to an OB/GYN clinic to be screened for the virus; consider the need to take off work, how she will commute to tImagehe clinic, the amount of waiting involved once she’s finally there, and what about child care? For these reasons, Women With A Vision has paired with LSU Health Sciences in a study focusing on the usability of a home-test kit for HPV.

Outreach worker Zina Mitchell has lead the group in recruiting community participation as well as teaching current WWAV interns the most effective way of reaching individuals. The neighborhoods specified by the study are Treme, Holly Grove, and Central City. Beginning outreach during the first week in October, we have distributed over 120 flyers to individuals in grocery stores, restaurants, gas stations, and to those walking down sidewalks. General reactions have been inquisitive and friendly, asking more about what we’re doing and who we are. Conversations have allowed us to explain further the reason women need to be screened for HPV, regardless if they choose to do so through this study opportunity.

Recruiting participants has proved to be an interesting endeavor; learning how best to explain the risks involved in contracting HPV as well as why learning one’s own status could lead to preventing cervical cancer. The procedure of the study randomly assigns individuals to either a clinic visit or to use a home-testing kit. Among other forms required by the Institutional Review Board (IRB), we then present the individual with a questionnaire to verify eligibility (only those between the ages of 21-64 qualify) and a pre-test that will later be compared to the post-test. For those who are assigned to the clinic, WWAV provides either bus or street car tokens or a gas card—depending on the need of the client—and then we schedule an appointment.

For those assigned to the home-testing kit, the process is a bit more involved. We have pre-made kits for the women, including instructions on how to do the test. She then inserts the provided tampon for 2 hours, removes it and places it in the given tube and plastic bag, then places the pre-paid box in the mail, destination LSU Health Sciences.

Although we are in the beginning stages of this project, we anticipate a positive response from the communities participating. The mentality behind this study, the convenience and accessibility of testing for HPV at home, explains our involvement and support of the project. The clients that we work and interact with could only benefit from an easy method allowing them to determine their own HPV status when considering the many obstacles involved in preventing them from accessing services at an OB/GYN clinic; money, child care, and transportation being just a few of the deterrents.

Limited access to care especially in the realm of health services is a known reality for the individuals and families we serve. The idea of being able to assess one’s own health status at home opens a world of possibilities and allows for the individual to reclaim his or her own power; the power of autonomy. Removing stigma as it relates to health care opens the door to myriad opportunities for individuals to protect their own bodies from disease and to manage a life-style that will lead them to a long and happy life. At-home testing for HPV will do just that.

The Personal is Political

It’s been a little over a year since I became involved in Women With A Vision. And as anyone who has ever worked with us knows, that means I’ve been tasked with anything and everything. I’ve created outreach materials, helped clients complete Medicaid applications, provided clean syringes to injection drug users. But of all activities I’ve taken part in during my time at Women With A Vision, our story circles stand out.

Twice a month WWAV hosts story circles—a community-based storytelling session. Our staff, interns and participants gather around in a circle to tell stories, share our lived experiences, and find a collective voice. WWAV’s participants are overwhelmingly low-income women and transgender women of color, a number of whom are involved in the street-based economies. Story circles thus achieve the important task of centering the voices of people who are too often made invisible in our society. They not only engender a sense of community and awareness, but they also promote healing and collective action.

Timid and a little quirky, afraid that I wouldn’t gain the acceptance of our participants, I did very little talking in the first few story circles. I had come to WWAV as a student intern from University of New Orleans. And while my coursework in the sociology of gender had impassioned me, serving as the impetus for my politicization as a young Latina woman living in the South, there was also a gap between what I had been taught in the classroom and what I was now learning in our story circles. My courses at school had given me a theoretical understanding of the ways in which systems of race, gender, class, and sexuality intersect to create social inequality. But story circles lent a face and a voice to the people who live under the pressure of those inequalities. I admire our participants’ resilience, and I admire the generosity with which they shared their lives with me.

Eventually, my timidity washed away, allowing me reciprocate the same generosity our participants had shown me in sharing their stories. As I developed relationships with our participants, they came to call me ‘White Chocolate.’ Not only is this a delicious nickname, but I felt it validated my place in WWAV. That nickname is a reminder of my personal trajectory at WWAV—from a reserved to a more confident person with a deep social justice commitment.

Perhaps that’s why I so vividly remember my incredulous reaction when I got Deon’s message that “our office was torched.” Torched? As a non-native English speaker, I had initially thought: perhaps there is another definition of the word “torched” that eludes me. Because “torched” certainly couldn’t mean that our office had been set on fire. My denial was quickly punctured as our photos and videos began to circulate on the web.

In the month since fire, all of us have experienced many ups and downs. WWAV has not only been a safe haven, but it has also been a place of growth for all us. The violence of this attack is an ever-present reminder that the personal is indeed political. As we continue our rebuilding process, this awareness is what keeps all of us going. Someone tried to stamp us out by destroying the materials we use to do our work, but our work—our vision—goes so much deeper than that. It is inside all of us who are part of the WWAV family. That’s something that can’t be burned down.
