Description

CBS 60 Minutes II reports on dangers of tissue transplants. The story focuses on the case of Brian Lykins, a healthy 23-old, who has died from a routine knee surgery after a gangrene-like infection. The main finding: the infection was caused by contaminated tissue supplied by Cryolife, a company that had known of dangers of contamination for at least four years and had settled previous cases of deaths out of court.
