Relation of probability of causation to relative risk and doubling dose: a methodologic error that has become a social problem. (2/270)

Epidemiologists, biostatisticians, and health physicists frequently serve as expert consultants to lawyers, courts, and administrators. One of the most common errors committed by experts is to equate, without qualification, the attributable fraction estimated from epidemiologic data to the probability of causation requested by courts and administrators. This error has become so pervasive that it has been incorporated into judicial precedents and legislation. This commentary provides a brief overview of the error and the context in which it arises.  (+info)

American Society of Clinical Oncology technology assessment on breast cancer risk reduction strategies: tamoxifen and raloxifene. (3/270)

OBJECTIVE: To conduct an evidence-based technology assessment to determine whether tamoxifen and raloxifene as breast cancer risk-reduction strategies are appropriate for broad-based conventional use in clinical practice. POTENTIAL INTERVENTION: Tamoxifen and raloxifene. OUTCOME: Outcomes of interest include breast cancer incidence, breast cancer-specific survival, overall survival, and net health benefits. EVIDENCE: A comprehensive, formal literature review was conducted for tamoxifen and raloxifene on the following topics: breast cancer risk reduction; tamoxifen side effects and toxicity, including endometrial cancer risk; tamoxifen influences on nonmalignant diseases, including coronary heart disease and osteoporosis; and decision making by women at risk for breast cancer. Testimony was collected from invited experts and interested parties. VALUES: More weight was given to publications that described randomized trials. BENEFITS/HARMS/COSTS: The American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Working Group acknowledges that a woman's decision regarding breast cancer risk-reduction strategies will depend on the importance and weight attributed to the information provided regarding both cancer and non-cancer-related risks. CONCLUSIONS: For women with a defined 5-year projected risk of breast cancer of >/= 1.66%, tamoxifen (at 20 mg/d for up to 5 years) may be offered to reduce their risk. It is premature to recommend raloxifene use to lower the risk of developing breast cancer outside of a clinical trial setting. On the basis of available information, use of raloxifene should currently be reserved for its approved indication to prevent bone loss in postmenopausal women. Conclusions are based on single-agent use of the drugs. At the present time, the effect of using tamoxifen or raloxifene with other medications (such as hormone replacement therapy), or using tamoxifen and raloxifene in combination or sequentially, has not been studied adequately. The continuing use of placebo-controlled trials in other risk-reduction trials highlights the current unanswered issues concerning the use of such interventions, especially when the influence on net health benefit remains to be determined. Breast cancer risk reduction is a rapidly evolving area. This technology assessment represents an ongoing process with existing plans to monitor and review data and to update recommendations in a timely matter. (See VALIDATION: The conclusions of the Working Group were evaluated by the ASCO Health Services Research Committee and by the ASCO Board of Directors.

A medico-legal review of some current UK guidelines in orthodontics: a personal view. (4/270)

This article is a critical analysis from a medico-legal perspective of some current authoritative UK clinical guidelines in orthodontics. Two clinical guidelines have been produced by the Royal College of Surgeons of England and four by the British Orthodontic Society. Each guideline is published with the analysis immediately following it. Following recent UK case law (Bolitho v City & Hackney Health Authority, 1997) which allows the courts to choose between two bodies of responsible expert medical opinion where they feel one opinion is not 'logical', it is likely that the UK courts will increasingly turn to authoritative clinical guidelines to assist them in judging whether or not an appropriate standard of care has been achieved in medical negligence cases. It is thus important for clinicians to be aware of the recommendations of such guidelines, and if these are not followed the reasons should be discussed with the patient and recorded in the clinical case notes. This article attempts to highlight aspects of the guidelines that have medico-legal implications.  (+info)

Inguinal hernia: medicolegal implications. (5/270)

Repair of an inguinal hernia is one of the commonest operations undertaken by surgeons but the role of trauma in causing inguinal hernia is not well understood.

Doctors on tribunals. A confusion of roles. (6/270)

BACKGROUND: Mental health review tribunals are required to apply legal criteria within a clinical context. This can create tensions within both law and psychiatry. AIMS: To examine the role of the medical member of the tribunal as a possible mediator between the two disciplines. METHOD: Observation of tribunal hearings and panel deliberations and interviews with tribunal members were used to describe the role of the medical member. RESULTS: The dual roles imposed on the medical member as witness and decision-maker and as doctor and legal actor create formal demands and ethical conflicts that are hard, in practice, either to meet or to resolve. CONCLUSIONS: The structure for providing tribunals with access to expert psychiatric input and advice requires reconsideration.  (+info)

Evaluation of new online automated embolic signal detection algorithm, including comparison with panel of international experts. (7/270)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The clinical application of Doppler detection of circulating cerebral emboli will depend on a reliable automated system of embolic signal detection; such a system is not currently available. Previous studies have shown that frequency filtering increases the ratio of embolic signal to background signal intensity and that the incorporation of such an approach into an offline automated detection system markedly improved performance. In this study, we evaluated an online version of the system. In a single-center study, we compared its performance with that of a human expert on data from 2 clinical situations, carotid stenosis and the period immediately after carotid endarterectomy. Because the human expert is currently the "gold standard" for embolic signal detection, we also compared the performance of the system with an international panel of human experts in a multicenter study. METHODS: In the single-center evaluation, the performance of the software was tested against that of a human expert on 20 hours of data from 21 patients with carotid stenosis and 18 hours of data from 9 patients that was recorded after carotid endarterectomy. For the multicenter evaluation, a separate 2-hour data set, recorded from 5 patients after carotid endarterectomy, was analyzed by 6 different human experts using the same equipment and by the software. Agreement was assessed by determining the probability of agreement. RESULTS: In the 20 hours of carotid stenosis data, there were 140 embolic signals with an intensity of > or =7 dB. With the software set at a confidence threshold of 60%, a sensitivity of 85.7% and a specificity of 88.9% for detection of embolic signals were obtained. At higher confidence thresholds, a specificity >95% could be obtained, but this was at the expense of a lower sensitivity. In the 18 hours of post-carotid endarterectomy data, there were 411 embolic signals of > or =7-dB intensity. When the same confidence threshold was used, a sensitivity of 95.4% and a specificity of 97.5% were obtained. In the multicenter evaluation, a total of 127 events were recorded as embolic signals by at least 1 center. The total number of embolic signals detected by the 6 different centers was 84, 93, 108, 92, 63, and 78. The software set at a confidence threshold of 60% detected 90 events as embolic signals. The mean probability of agreement, including all human experts and the software, was 0.83, and this was higher than that for 2 human experts and lower than that for 4 human experts. The mean values for the 6 human observers were averaged to give P=0.84, which was similar to that of the software. CONCLUSIONS: By using the frequency specificity of the intensity increase occurring with embolic signals, we have developed an automated detection system with a much improved sensitivity. Its performance was equal to that of some human experts and only slightly below the mean performance of a panel of human experts  (+info)

Government laboratory worker with lung cancer: comparing risks from beryllium, asbestos, and tobacco smoke. (8/270)

Occupational medicine physicians are frequently asked to establish cancer causation in patients with both workplace and non-workplace exposures. This is especially difficult in cases involving beryllium for which the data on human carcinogenicity are limited and controversial. In this report we present the case of a 73-year-old former technician at a government research facility who was recently diagnosed with lung cancer. The patient is a former smoker who has worked with both beryllium and asbestos. He was referred to the University of California, San Francisco, Occupational and Environmental Medicine Clinic at San Francisco General Hospital for an evaluation of whether past workplace exposures may have contributed to his current disease. The goal of this paper is to provide an example of the use of data-based risk estimates to determine causation in patients with multiple exposures. To do this, we review the current knowledge of lung cancer risks in former smokers and asbestos workers, and evaluate the controversies surrounding the epidemiologic data linking beryllium and cancer. Based on this information, we estimated that the patient's risk of lung cancer from asbestos was less than his risk from tobacco smoke, whereas his risk from beryllium was approximately equal to his risk from smoking. Based on these estimates, the patient's workplace was considered a probable contributing factor to his development of lung cancer.  (+info)

The most recent type of civil commitment for dangerous sex offenders is found under the sexually violent predator laws. Forensic psychiatrists or psychologists must render an opinion as to whether the sex offender has a diagnosed mental disorder and, as such, represents a risk to public safety if released from custody into the community. Thus, expert testimony provided by these professionals has taken a central role in the commitment determinations. There is considerable debate as to what disorders predispose individuals to sexual recidivism and what the term likely signifies. In this article, the authors explore the debate in terms of whether Antisocial Personality Disorder is a qualifying diagnosed mental disorder for classification as a sexually violent predator and how a likely threshold of risk of sexual recidivism can be conceptualized.. ...

Admissibility of Damage Photos & Impact Evidence without an Expert in Illinois. WITHOUT EXPERT TESTIMONY, THE ADMISSIBILITY OF DAMAGE PHOTOS (AND PERHAPS OTHER EVIDENCE SHOWING THE SEVERITY OF IMPACT) IN PERSONAL INJURY ACCIDENT CASES MAY NO LONGER BE AUTOMATIC IN ILLINOIS.. It is common-place in the circuit court to see motions in limine to bar admission of vehicular accident photos offered to show the extent of injuries. In personal injury claims, most states (except Delaware) tend to admit damage photos and other evidence indicating the severity of impact without expert testimony. In Illinois, the admission of such evidence is not automatic, but rather within the sound discretion of the trial court which decides whether expert testimony is required to show relevancy.. Although juries tend to accept or reject injury claims based upon the totality of the evidence adduced at trial, photographic damage photos have traditionally been a part of the equation. However, the admissibility of damages ...
As discussed above, the expert testimony regarding the studies relied upon by Respondents is conflicting. The greater weight of the persuasive expert testimony demonstrates the following: The basic research, the Pantuck Study, and the Carducci Study, relied on by Respondents, support the conclusion that pomegranate juice has a beneficial effect on prostate health. F. 1142. Competent and reliable scientific evidence supports the conclusion that the consumption of pomegranate juice and pomegranate extract supports prostate health, including by prolonging PSA doubling time in men with rising PSA after primary treatment for prostate cancer. F. 1142. However, the greater weight of the persuasive expert testimony shows that the evidence relied upon by Respondents is not adequate to substantiate claims that the POM Products treat, prevent, or reduce the risk of prostate cancer or that they are clinically proven to do so. F. 1143. Indeed, the authors of the Pantuck Study and the Carducci Study each ...

Introduction. Delawares Supreme Court recently decided a trio of cases concerning the admissibility of biomechanical expert testimony. Biomechanics is the study of the mechanical bases of biological, especially muscular, activity; also: the study of the principles and relations involved.[2] The decisions, Eskin v. Carden,[3] Mason v. Rizzi,[4] and Potter v. Blackburn[5] have changed the manner in which biomechanical expert testimony can be offered into evidence in Delaware. In these cases, the Delaware Supreme Court, for the first time, held that biomechanical expert testimony is admissible when offered to show a relationship between the force of a collision and the resulting injuries.[6] The Court did, however, place substantial limitations on those who would proffer such evidence. The Court held that trial judges cannot admit biomechanical expert testimony unless the method of evaluation used is properly calibrated in such a way as to take into consideration the particular medical history ...

One of the biggest obstacles in any medical malpractice case is discovery. Discovery is the portion of a lawsuit in which each side gathers information before trial. In a medical malpractice case, this involves gathering expert testimony from other physicians, obtaining patient records, and getting the details of the negligent actions that caused injury.. Hospitals and doctors often fight discovery requests tooth and nail. They are very reluctant to disclose information for fear of revealing negligent actions on the part of the hospital or physician. This means that often, the most important part of a medical malpractice lawsuit occurs during discovery.. In the case before the Illinois Supreme Court, the issue is whether the states Data Collection Act and the Health Care Quality Improvement Act allow a hospital to refuse to give over documents regarding physician credentials. The case arose after a doctor at the hospital allegedly botched a gallbladder surgery that ended up causing ...
Issue By: Thomas J. LoSavio. Cuevas v. Contra Costa County. First Appellate District, Division One (April 27, 2017). In an ordinary personal injury lawsuit, a defendant may not introduce evidence of amounts the plaintiff received from insurance covering the injuries. This rule is called the collateral source rule. The public policy behind the rule is that a plaintiff who has had the foresight to have paid insurance premiums for medical benefits should not be punished for that foresight and thrift, even if it means that, to some extent, the plaintiff might recover for the same damages twice, once from the insurance carrier and once from the defendant. The collateral source rule is not available to plaintiffs in cases where the injuries are caused by medical malpractice. In medical malpractice cases, evidence of insurance payments may be considered by the jury to reduce the damages to plaintiff. The reason for this different treatment is because the California Legislature responded to what it ...

An expert witness is a witness, who by virtue of education, training, skill, or experience, is believed to have knowledge in a particular subject beyond that of the average person, sufficient that others may officially (and legally) rely upon the witnesss specialized (scientific, technical, or other) opinion about an evidence or fact issue within the scope of their expertise, referred to as the expert opinion, as an assistance to the fact-finder. Expert witnesses may also deliver expert evidence about facts from the domain of their expertise. At times, their testimony may be rebutted with a learned treatise, sometimes to the detriment of their reputations.. Typically, experts are relied on for opinions on severity of injury, degree of insanity, cause of failure in a machine or other device, loss of earnings, care costs, and the like.

A Florida judge will allow plaintiffs in a Bard G2 IVC filter lawsuit to present expert testimony about fracturing and dislocation of the device. However, according to information on Harris Martins website, the judge will exclude opinions about the adequacy of the testing, design, manufacture, and labeling of Bards G2 filter.. IVC filters such as Bards G2 filter have been in use for roughly 50 years, with an estimated 100,000 devices implanted. IVC filters are designed to prevent blood clots from forming and travelling throughout the body, which can cause strokes and other life-threatening complications. However, the devices allegedly have unexpectedly high failure rates. Numerous studies have found that pieces of IVC filters, and sometimes entire devices, can break away and become lodged in vital organs like the heart and lungs.. Plaintiffs in Bard IVC filter lawsuits allege that as early as 2003, Bard knew that its Recovery IVC filter posed an unacceptably high risk of injury due to ...

By Cheryl Sullenger. Denver, CO - On this forty-fifth memorial of the Roe v. Wade Supreme court decision that decriminalized abortion in the U.S., this abortion horror story illustrates the human price of that tragic decision.. Last week, a local pro-life activist attended one day of the malpractice trail against late-term abortionist Warren Hern, who is accused by a former abortion patient, Jennifer D., of botching her abortion by leaving a piece of her babys skull inside her womb that resulted in a hysterectomy. The activist, who wishes to remain anonymous, visited the courtroom on Tuesday, January 16, 2018, for Day 5 of the proceedings. The observer took notes and reported to Operation Rescue about the days testimony. According to the pro-life observer, a psychologist, Dr. Robert Arias, a psychologist from Lincoln, Nebraska, who specializes in neuropsychology and behavioral sciences, gave testimony through a video deposition. He spoke of the plaintiffs pain and suffering that resulted from ...
The Tribunals three faces spotted Nebulos as he tried escape, and Nebulos told them that the time was not yet ripe, but that in eons to come, his power would be...but the Tribunal cut him off, denying him time or escape and preparing to unleash his full, grim, judgment. Realizing power used against Nebulos would be absorbed by the Staff, the Tribunal instead summoned the Flames of Faltine and threatened to destroy Nebulos world. Nebulos watched in horror as the Tribunal shattered a mountain with a single blast and then told Nebulos he might have mercy if he relinquished the Staff immediately. Nebulos refused, despite the Tribunal shattering a series of mountains. Desperate, Nebulos prepared to unleash the Staffs full power, but -- as the talons of cosmic fire had faded as the Tribunal focused his concentration elsewhere -- Strange swooped in and snatched the Staff from Nebulos hands; lacking the Staffs power, Nebulos was buried by the avalanche caused by the Tribunals blasts.

Health and justice have to communicate whenever the question of legal responsibility is formally raised with respect to a person accused of a serious crime. Clinical and legal definitions of insanity do not match up in a 1:1 fashion. Once a criminal charge has been laid, the New Zealand (NZ) Justice system operates on adversarial, as opposed to inquisitorial, principles. The defence can seek a verdict of not guilty by reason of insanity (NGRI). In which case, to assist the Court, both defence and prosecution seek independent psychiatric opinions on the applicability of criteria prescribed in section 23 of the NZ Crimes Act (1961) and subsequent, relevant, case law. From the outset the situation is contested in the sense that the prosecution and the defence seek opposite outcomes. Psychiatric evidence is presented to the court by expert witnesses whose opinions are separately sought by both the prosecution or the defence. Those witnesses are expected to be dispassionate and their opinions ...
There are certain hospitals and physicians that supply their patients with forms that state arbitration will be required for any claims of medical malpractice. However, within the state of Florida, such alternative dispute forums are not mandated by law. If parties present do not accept the offer of a defendant to make use of arbitration, the maximum amount that can be recovered under state law will not be able to exceed that in economic damages. Specifically, no more than 80 percent of lost wages can be recovered, and in non economic damages, the limit is $350,000.. Whenever a person wants to file a suit against a hospital or a physician under the premise of medical negligence, there must be expert testimony present. Specifically, there must be a written medical expert opinion that supports there are merit to the patients claims of negligence in the actions or inactions of each defendant named in the suit. Defendants who believe that reasonable grounds do not exist within the claim must supply ...
The dissolution of the Water Tribunal nine months ago created a fair amount of controversy and now that the water and environmental department is reviving the administrative body, the question is whether it will be any more effective than it was before.. The Tribunal is a specialised administrative body meant to provide an informal, expeditious, cost-effective and easily accessible platform for dispute resolution in the implementation of the National Water Act. It hears appeals against administrative decisions and directives relating to water which is critical to industry and communities. Given waters elevated importance nationally, a fully functional Water Tribunal is a necessity.. The rationale offered by Water and Environmental Affairs Minister Edna Molewa in initially dissolving the Tribunal was to change the law governing it, thereby making it more efficient. An amendment to the Act increasing the Tribunals powers is definitely welcome, however, suspending the Tribunal while waiting for ...

An expert witness for the defence questioned the nature of memory in the Brent Hawkes sexual assault trial today, suggesting that memories are not as reliable as some might believe.. Hawkes, a longtime leader of Torontos gay community and recipient of the Order of Canada, is facing one charge of indecent assault and one charge of gross indecency for allegedly having oral sex with a 16-year-old more than 40 years ago in Kings County, NS, when he was a high school teacher. The Crowns case against Hawkes is based almost entirely on the eyewitness testimonies of three witnesses.. Memories can undergo a substantial amount of modification over time and the longer the time, the more opportunity for these kinds of misinformation effects to occur, Timothy Moore told the court Nov 21, 2016.. The more often a memory is revisited, or recollected or rehearsed, the more confident the rememberer will be with its authenticity..
