Stockert 3T Heater-Cooler Device

Our Virginia Product Liability Attorneys Can Help!

Individuals who have undergone invasive surgeries where a Stockert 3T heater-cooler device was used may be at risk of developing a dangerous infection. Heater-cooler devices are often used in heart surgeries as a form of body temperature control. However, evidence of contaminated water in certain heater-cooler devices has led to numerous cases of bacterial infections as well as other serious side effects.

At Kalfus & Nachman PC, our Virginia product liability lawyers are prepared to advocate on your behalf. Since 1979, we have fought for the rights of the injured and we are not afraid to face big insurance companies or large corporations in order to defend the rights of our clients. We have recovered millions of dollars on behalf of our clients, and we want to help you too.

Know the Risks

Between 2010 and 2016, the FDA received 79 reports of serious infections caused by contaminated heater-cooler devices and 12 associated deaths. These Stockert 3T products use water within the product as a means through which to control body temperature while a person undergoes an invasive surgery. The most common types of surgeries that require the use of heater-cooler devices are open-heart surgery and open-chest bypass surgery.

Symptoms of infection include:

  • Abnormal fatigue
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Loss of appetite
  • Weight loss
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Muscle and joint pain
  • Night sweats
  • Persistent coughing, especially with blood
  • Redness and irritation at the surgical site

While most infections can be treated through the administration of medicines, there have been reports of severe infections and even death caused as a result of Stockert 3T heater-cooler device infections.
