Drug & Device Injury News
“Low T” Heart Risk
Low testosterone, sometimes referred to as “Low T”, is a medical condition that can affect men’s sex drive, mood, energy levels, muscle mass, and bone strength. A variety of patches, injections, gels—including the prescription drug AndroGel®— and pills are marketed to men as ways to increase testosterone levels. But testosterone therapy has been linked to an increased risk of cardiovascular injuries in some male patients.
A study published in The Journal of the American Medical Association reports a 30 percent increase in the risk of heart attack, stroke, pulmonary embolism, DVT, and even death in men who take testosterone therapy drugs such as AndroGel.
Power Morcellator Cancer Risk
Each year, surgeons use power morcellators to perform approximately 50,000 hysterectomies and myomectomies, which involve removing a woman’s uterus or uterine fibroids. The morcellator—essentially a powered device with sharp edges and cutting jaws—creates a small incision, and in theory allows patients to heal more quickly than with traditional surgery. However, according to recent studies, power morcellators can leave behind cancerous cells that migrate to tissues in other parts of the body.
Rivaroxaban, marketed under the brand name Xarelto®, is a prescription blood thinner designed to stop blood coagulation. Manufactured by Bayer and approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in July 2011, Xarelto is often given to patients who undergo joint replacement surgery or have non-valvular atrial fibrillation.
Despite its wide use, Xarelto has been linked to an increased risk of serious bleeding, stroke, blood clots, and other side effects among certain types of patients. In August 2013, the FDA required Bayer to change the warning label on packages of Xarelto. Patients who stop taking the medication have a greater chance of experiencing thrombotic events, including spinal/epidural hematomas, pulmonary embolisms, and more.

Commercial trucks such as semis and 18-wheelers are much larger and heavier than other passenger vehicles. Because of the difference in size, a collision between a truck and a car—even at low speeds—can have devastating consequences for everyone involved. In fact, truck accidents often result in broken bones, long-term disabilities, and death.Learn More
Dog bites and attacks can cause serious injuries and complications, such as severe bleeding, infection, nerve damage, and even death. Many dog bite victims—especially children—suffer from mental and emotional stress.Learn More

DeBry’s Free Rides HomeWe want to keep our community’s roads safe—especially during busy holiday weekends. Our Free Rides Home program reimburses adults who have been drinking or need a safe way home up to $35 for a cab ride home within the Salt Lake City metro area.
MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving)As lawyers, we’ve seen the tragic impact of drunk driving, and we’ve helped many families pick up the pieces after these accidents occur. We’re equally focused on finding a way to stop drunk driving before it occurs. We’re strong supporters of MADD, and for every drunk driving case we win or settle we donate $500 to MADD. Since 2007, our law firm has donated $19,345 to MADD.
Tie One On for Safety®We support Mothers Against Drunk Driving and its longest running and most visible public awareness project, Tie One On For Safety®. During the holiday season, we encourage people in the community to make a visible pledge to drive sober by displaying a red ribbon on their cars.
People in Salt Lake City, St. George, and the surrounding areas are encouraged to pick up red ribbons at our offices or other local businesses during the month of December. Ribbons displayed on vehicles indicate drivers who plan to drive safe, sober, and buckled throughout the year.
