Newsworthy Articles from IndostarCom circa 2011



It appears this site's domain was allowed to expire and as a consequence, the site disappeared from the web. When I discovered that the domain was available I bought it with the goal of recreating some of its original content from archived pages. I did not want someone else to purchase the domain and re-purpose the site for something that had nothing in common with the original website.

The first time I read an article on Indostar News was in 2011. I was just out of college and had started the process of sending out resumes for jobs in the software development marketplace. Five years later I am a freelancing graphics artist working with a number of web site developers. My clients' list is amazingly varied ranging from being part of a team at a progressive software development company that specializes in helping physicians customize their concierge practice needs, to creating all the artwork for a site that is an affiliate for online casinos. But the project that is the most fun is for a site that sells superhero apparel. Right now I'm focused on a really popular product - Superman t shirts. Some of these shirts are really gorgeous, printed using a modern subliminal process that is super colorful and high resolution. While the superhero site is fun, restoring the archive of this news aggregator seems more like a good deed, resurrecting a legitimate news site that both informs and helps folks understand our world.

FYI: Although the content below is from the years past, IndoStar News is not dead.

IVC Filter Use: What’s Next?
July, 2011 | Edited Interview with **Dr. Matthew Johnson

Many of thousands of people in the United States suffer from venous thromboembolic disease (VTD) each year. The majority of VTD patients can be treated appropriately with anticoagulation. However, there are some who cannot take an anticoagulate therapy. They patients are recommended to have an IVC filter. The first IVC filters were considered to be placed within the patient on a permanent basis. However in order to reduce the potential risk for DVT and other less frequent complications, such as IVC thrombosis spurred the development of retrievable IVC filters. The first design of a potentially retrievable filters was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2002. Although all of the IVC filters that are available today in the US today are approved by the FDA for permanent placement, the majority of the filter designs are retrievable. It has been recognized since the introduction of retrievable filters that design modifications that were necessary due to some unexpected complications that arose in some patients.

However, my decision-making process as a surgeon has not changed. I always evaluate the indication for filter placement at the time of its request. If the indications are not clear, I discuss the case with the referring physician. If there is not a clear indication, I do not place the filter.

I think all surgeons or technicians who implant IVC filters need to consider several important things.

  • Is the indication for filter placement appropriate?
  • Do you have a plan for retrieval, or is the device intended to be permanent?
  • Do you know, to the best extent possible, the risks and benefits of the device that you are implanting?
  • Are you using what you believe to be the best device available?

**Matthew Johnson, MD, FSIR, is Professor of Radiology and Surgery at Indiana University School of Medicine, and Director of Interventional Oncology at Indiana University Health in Indianapolis, Indiana. He is a paid consultant to Boston Scientific Corporation, Cook Medical, CeloNova BioSciences, Inc., Nordion, and Sirtex Medical.

Four years later:
Even before the above interview with Dr. Matthew Johnson, there were indications there were issues with the designs of several different IVC filters specifically 6 different Bard IVC filters and 2 Cook filters. In 2010, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced a safety alert regarding retrievable IVC filters. Later in 2014 the FDA updated its safety communication recommending retrievable devices be removed between the 29th and 54th day after implantation in patients in which PE subsided. Hundreds of patients have suffered dibilitating complications and even death as a result of the Bard and Cook IVC filters. There are numerous IVC filter injury attorneys representing individuals and families against the manufacturers. If you or a loved one suffered serious complications after being implanted with an IVC filter, you should contact a lawyer who specializes in handling medical device type lawsuits.
Finally in 2015 the first large-scale, multi-specialty research trial to evaluate the safety of IVC filter use, entitled Predicting the Safety and Effectiveness of Inferior Vena Cava Filters (PRESERVE). The goal of the research is to obtain a real-world view of the safety and effectiveness of IVC filters placed in the U.S.

That Gloomy Cambodia
June 27th, 2011

The statements of four former leaders of the Khmer Rouge before a court led by the United Nations in the Cambodian capital opens a long process that is responsible for the main perpetrators of the genocide that caused two million deaths from 1975 to 1979, suspended the schools to create a regime of agrarian utopiahe suppressed religion and left in the hands of few the life of the vast majority. One of every four Cambodians were victims of the perverse fantasy imported from the Cultural Revolution of Mao in China.

The four accused, a man and a woman, scratch the eighty years and it is impossible to meet the penalties envisaged in the statement that going for very long and it is going to stir the consciences of Cambodians and those they remember that awful barbarity. In classical literature, from Thucydides to Herodotus, we see that in the exercise of political power, the human race can and wants to return to the animality. It reminds us of Steiner killings have punctuated the millennia with strident normality.

The century XX, of the great progress in all fields of knowledge, has been that more victims of political intolerance has thrown into the fires of the totalitarian ideologies.

Justice has been delayed for political reasons and also to not open more wounds in the turbulent Cambodian society that has not exceeded social tear of a barbarism which led children to denounce their parents creating a totalitarianism which penetrated to the inside of the Consciousnesses. It is a pity that manoeuvres of the United Nations as fears of Cambodian Governments have not concluded before trial. The current Prime Minister was a member of the Khmer Rouge in his youth.

Cinema and literature have told us that can be considered one of the most horrible tragedies that met the past century, a massive massacre allegations, collective famines, murders were discovered with those mass graves of thousands of skulls buried deep within the forest. That gloomy Cambodia reminds US of the value of the dignity of the people. Each time that a human being is hit, killed on hunger, stripped of respect, opens a huge hole in the lives of all.
