New Study Confirms Link Between Pain Pumps and Cartilage Damage -- Searcy Denney Law Firm Investigates Claims

West Palm Beach, FL (PRWEB) September 22, 2008 -- South Florida law firm Searcy Denney Scarola Barnhart & Shipley PA (Searcy Denney) has stepped up its investigation into claims stemming from the use of pain pumps following a recent study confirming their dangers. According to the new study, the medication delivered by these pumps causes significant cartilage damage. This study confirms and explains earlier reports of adverse outcomes associated with pain pump use. The cartilage damage caused by these pumps results in a condition known as Post Arthroscopic Glenohumeral Chondrolysis (PAGCL), which can lead to significant pain, disability, repeat surgery and not infrequently, the necessity for total joint replacement.

Published in the American Journal of Sports Medicine and presented in July 2008 at this year's American Orthopedic Society for Sports Medicine meeting, the in vitro study measured the extent of cartilage damage caused by directly exposing cartilage to various concentrations and amounts of the pain medicines commonly used in these pumps. After seeing compelling evidence of cartilage destruction, the authors concluded the use of some medications should be discontinued. Others were recommended for use in minimal concentrations and for very short periods of time.

This study follows an earlier study finding pain pumps caused severe cartilage damage. Published by the American Journal of Sports Medicine (AJSM), the prior study found a strong association between the use of high volume pain pumps after arthroscopic surgery and a loss of cartilage in the shoulder.
