Our #TBI  attorneys in #Raleigh  learned the Congress of Neurological Surgeons' journal published a report of a controlled application of vacuum pressure used on traumatic brain injury victims. This procedure is called “mechanical tissue resuscitation” and involves a vacuum pressure application on damaged areas of the brain. (North Carolina had a small part in refining this technique: the research was completed by two doctors at Wake Forest University of Health & Sciences.) Currently mechanical tissue resuscitation has been promising in non-human trials (pigs) and has yet to be implemented on a human patient. This still provides hope for traumatic brain injury victims. The application reduced bleeding, minimized the injured area, and helped brain tissues return to a "normal" state. No side effects like further brain damage or seizures were reported.

The medical device industry has laced the field of gynecologic surgical repair with land mines in the form of inadequately tested pelvic mesh. And the FDA refuses to do anything about it. SHARE this latest article about how the FDA is leaving dozens of products on the market with questionable safety. -

What's more important than an insurance claim after an accident? Getting medical treatment as soon as possible and advising your healthcare provider how your injuries were caused.
