Olympus Medical Device Linked to Life-Threatening Superbug
Every year more than 500,000 ERCP procedures take place in the U.S. and are often performed on patients with pancreatic cancer and colon cancer. This medical procedure is used to diagnose and treat diseases of the liver, bile ducts, and pancreas, such as tumors, stones, blockages, and narrowing.
A duodenoscope is used in ERCP procedures. It consists of flexible, lighted tubes that are threaded through the mouth, throat, then stomach into the top of the small intestine. If the scope is not properly cleaned, residual body fluids and debris can remain embedded in microscopic crevices in the device. This could expose subsequent patients to Carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE), an antibiotic-resistant "superbug" infection.
If you or a loved one has were injured as the resulf of an ERCP procedure, you could be entitled to serious financial compensation. There is no obligation, no risk, and no financial outlay for you or a loved one.
