Whistle Blower Cover-up Case Study:
How medical device companies and the ACOG work with public relation firms specializing in “crisis management” suppress the truth, silence whistle blowers, work to erase history, and “sabotage” medical malpractice cases to protect their $tock.
Silencing Whistle-Blowers & Erasing History…
Issues of Tubal Ligation/female sterilization, Essure, Morcellation, Hysterectomy, uterine fibroid artery embolization (UFE)/(UAE) & Dr. Vikki Hufnagel, MD.
Medical Device Mayhem (MDM): There is no term for medical devices which failed to have proper basic research and have been marketed for profit without proper informed consent and proper review or data bases. This has been seen in the Dalkon Shield, Ovabloc, Essure and other devices that have mutilated the body causing physical harm and psychological and family/life complications. If there is no term it is difficult to educate the public and government to make things understood so that these issues can be discussed properly and action take place. Language is needed to deal with complex medical issues and thus I am giving a name to these events so we have foundation to build on.
MDM stands for "Medical Device Mayhem". MDM means a device was created and for a variety of reasons exists it has caused Mayhem. Mayhem this is an action that renders the patient victim in a disorder of confusion, depression, and havoc. It renders the victim to be impaired so that they cannot function in a previous normal status in which they were functional and could protect themselves. The injury inflected is from the device and or its use application that data provided to have significant permanent crippling, mutilation, dysfunction and or disfigurement of the human body. That these events have been committed needlessly, or with willful damage or negligence and by the nature of the event can be classified as an act of violence. ~ Dr. Vikki Hufnagel, MD
Ovarian Isolation: Occurs when an ovary is surgically isolated or removed from its blood supply (oopherectomy). The ovary(s) are castrated but not physically removed from the body. The isolated ovary(s) becomes atrophic and nonfunctional. Ovarian isolation occurs most often with hysterectomy, salpingectomy and tubal ligation.
Hormone Shock: Sudden loss or abrupt change of hormones triggering physical shock and manifesting with shock related symptoms.
The symptoms of hormone shock that can manifest after the loss of ovarian function includes: Chills, hot flashes, vaginal dryness, painful intercourse, bladder dysfunction, loss of sex drive, sleep disturbances, headaches, heart palpation's, fuzzy logic, confusion, rage, depression, and memory loss that can mimic an Alzheimer’s type state.
In addition to these symptoms, women who lose both ovaries, or lose the function of their ovaries also lose the protection these hormones provide against heart disease and osteoporosis many years earlier than if they had experienced natural menopause.
Women who have had their ovaries removed or rendered nonfunctional due to ovarian isolation are seven times more likely to develop coronary heart disease and much more likely to develop bone problems at an early age than are pre-menopausal women whose ovaries are intact and functioning.
