New Jersey yaz lawyers filing Yaz lawsuits for Blood clots, stroke, death and pulmonary embolism for yaz.

Joan Cummins of Hackettstown, New Jersey, today filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Bayer Corporation charging that its oral contraceptive, Yaz, caused the sudden death of her eighteen-year old daughter, Michelle Pfleger.

On September 24, 2010, Michelle Pfleger collapsed on the way to her morning class at Elon University in North Carolina. The emergency team rushed Michelle to a nearby hospital, but despite all of their efforts, they were unable to save her. The autopsy report showed that Michelle died from cardiac arrest triggered by a pulmonary emboli, which is a blood clot in the lungs that can lead to abnormally low blood pressure and sudden death. Michelle was prescribed Yaz for the treatment of acne. The Complaint charges that Yaz caused the fatal blood clot in Pfleger's lungs.

What is a Pulmonary Embolism?

  The obstruction of the pulmonary artery or a branch of it leading to the lungs by a blood clot, usually from the leg, or foreign material causing sudden closure of the vessel. (Embolus is from the Greek "embolos" meaning plug.) The risk factors for pulmonary embolism include advanced age, cancer, genetic predisposition, immobilization (especially in the hospital), pelvic or leg trauma, pregnancy, and surgery. The diagnosis of pulmonary embolism can be difficult because the symptoms are nonspecific and may mimic many other diseases. Pulmonary angiography is the gold standard test. Other tests may include oximetry and arterial blood gas analysis and imaging such as chest x-rays and ultrasonography. The treatment includes anticoagulants such as heparin and warfarin (Coumadin). About 10- 15% of patients with pulmonary embolism die from it.
