CHICAGO, May 10, 2019 /Standard Newswire/ -- The final clues are falling into place in a 12-year-old mystery about how patient protections were bypassed during open heart surgery for hundreds of patients. The Model 5100 heart valve ring was implanted into nearly 700 patients without their consent or approval from the Food and Drug Administration. Documents recently obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request outline how this practice escaped regulatory notice.
On Thursday, one of the Model 5100 patients was in a Chicago courtroom, seeking a new trial in a malpractice lawsuit due to the newly released documents. Her petition alleges fraudulent concealment of critical information, which is now public.
"He was putting it into patients, seeing how it worked, and not telling them," Obermeier's attorney Adrwin Boyer said during opening statements of the 2016 court trial in Cook County, according to Fox 32 in Chicago.
Dr. Nalini M. Rajamannan's report, The Myxo File X and The Myxo Report, offers a comprehensive look at the Senate Finance and Senate Judiciary Investigations from 2008-2014 for the 667 heart valve patients, media, regulators, lawmakers and patients' rights advocates.
The Myxo File X published Saturday, May 4, 2019 on Amazon.com also provides an in-depth analysis by Dr. Rajamannan, an eye-witness to the human experiments, regarding the release of responses sent to the Senate.
