Tissue implant scandal heightens FDA’s concer

Due to the tissue suppliers’ scandals, the patients who received tendons, cartilage and other parts from donated cadavers//, are being advised to undergo tests for hepatitis and HIV. This is happening for the second time in a year.

Since the federal officials won’t tell the number of people, across the country, who had got tissue before the recalls were announced, it is difficult to tell about the risk recipients face.

Patients may be unaware that they had got cadaver tissue implanted. All the doctors may not tell the patients about the donated tissue. Usually, the doctors themselves don’t know the source of the tissue.

Clifford McDonald, an infectious disease specialist at the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “Chances are good that an infection would have taken hold by then, or at least shown up in blood tests,” he said.

Annually, cadaver tissue is being used in more than 1.3 million procedures, from knee repairs to spine surgeries. Reputed companies supply most of the tissue. However, a 3-month Associated Press investigation earlier this year, revealed that this industry is not regulated properly.

Philip Guyett Jr. and Donor Referral Services of Raleigh, N.C. were shut down by the U.S. FDA on August 18, due to "serious deficiencies" in manufacturing practices. A mismatch of the records with the official death certificates and lack of information on the donor’s history of cancer or drug use, making the tissue ineligible for transplantation, were some of the flaws reported i
