Who should your tissue transplant lawyer hold responsible?
BA lawsuit was filed against Biomedical Tissue Services, a now-defunct tissue
bank that was located in New Jersey, accusing the company of stealing body parts
from a 43-year old woman who died of ovarian cancer in 2003. The lawsuit claims
that the tissue bank forged signatures on consent forms and listed the cause of
death as head trauma, not cancer.
Biomedical Tissue Services Ltd is just one of the firms responsible. Other
alleged defendants include: BioTissue Technologies, Lefecess Corp.; Lost
Mountain Tissue Bank; Blood and Tissue Center of Central Texas; Tutogen Medical
Inc.; and Regeneration Technologies.
As information becomes better known and more patients are notified about their
dubious tissue transplants, more tissue banks and tissue brokers may become
defendants. Click here for a list of tissue banks.
In the last few years, the demand for bone and tissue transplants has grown:
skin for wounds or burns; corneas to help prevent blindness; heart valves to
repair heart defects; and parts of bone, cartilage, and tendons used in hip
replacements, knee replacements, and ankle surgeries.
More than a million tissue transplants are performed each year, part of a $1
billion industry... a controversial industry that needs more stringent regulations
