Description

The San Francisco Examiner reports that "more than 150 patients - perhaps many more - suffered debilitating infections that were later linked in public records to their physicians' use of ordinary medical sutures allegedly contaminated with infectious bacteria." The Examiner found "... alleged negligence on the part of a surgical manufacturer and inaction by federal regulators responsible for ensuring the safety of medical products."
