Parker Waichman Alonso Mark LLP are Investigating Numerous
Claims for Injuries Sustained as a Result of Gadolinium Based
Contrast Agent Injections Used During MRI Scans

The Law Firm Has Been Contacted by a Number of Individuals
Who Sustained Serious Kidney Problems as a result of
Gadolinium Based Injections

Lawfuel – the Law Newswire – NEW YORK, — Parker Waichman Alonso Mark
LLP recently learned that the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) has
notified healthcare professionals of the Agency’s request for the
addition of boxed warnings and new warnings about the risk of
nephrogenic systemic fibrosis (NSF) for all Gadolinium based contrast
agents. The new warnings require highlights, describing the risk for
NSF following exposure to Gadolinium in patients with acute or chronic
severe renal insufficiency. The FDA is also requesting the addition of
a boxed warning about the risk for NSF.

In 2006, researchers found there is a direct connection between the
development of nephrogenic systemic fibrosis (NSF) and the use of
Gadolinium contrast agents during Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and
Magnetic Resonance Angiography (MRA) for those kidney problems.

An MRI scan is performed to obtain a clear detailed image of a
patient’s internal organs and tissues and an MRA is used to obtain a
detailed image of a patient’s blood vessels. During some MRI and MRA
scans, a Gadolinium based contrast agent is injected into the patient
to highlight blood vessels so they can be distinguished from other
nearby tissues.

Symptoms of nephrogenic systemic fibrosis (NSF) are:

* Burning
* Itching
* Swelling
* Hardening and tightening of the skin
* Red or dark patches on the skin
* Yellow spots on the whites of the eyes
* Stiffness in joints and trouble moving or straightening the arms,
hands, legs, feet
* Pain deep in the hip bones or ribs
* Muscle weakness
* Death
