The attorneys at the Infinity Law Center are currently investigating potential lawsuits on behalf of men that needed a stent implanted after using testosterone replacement therapy. Testosterone gels and creams marketed as “safe” have been linked to heart attacks, blocked arteries, blood clots and other unexplained health problems in the men who they were prescribed to. Many otherwise healthy men have had to undergo stent procedures after using “Low-T” products prescribed by their doctors.
The number of testosterone therapy prescriptions has more than doubled in the last five years. Much of this demand is fueled by aggressive advertising on radio, TV and magazines which blame “Low-T” for common male health concerns like weight gain, reduced energy and low libido.
Experts warn that many men whose problems are not caused by low testosterone, and in many cases is a natural progression of aging, are needlessly putting themselves at great risk. A number of recent studies suggest that testosterone therapy, especially in older men or men with pre-existing heart disease, may significantly increase the risk of cardiovascular side effects, often requiring undergoing a stent procedure.
A study published in January 2014 in the journal PLOS One, which looked at over 55,000 testosterone patients, found that testosterone therapy more than doubled the risk of a non-fatal heart attacks in men 65 years or older and more than tripled the risk in men 75 years or older. This same study also discovered that testosterone therapy nearly tripled the risk of heart attacks and stent implantation in men under the age of 65 who had a prior history of heart disease.
An earlier study published in November 2013 in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) found that men had a 30% increase risk of stents, heart attack, stroke or even death after taking testosterone therapy.
In response to the published PLOS One and JAMA articles, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a Drug Safety Communication on January 31, 2014, announcing that it was “investigating the risk of stroke, heart attack and death in men taking FDA-approved testosterone products.” The FDA also noted that “testosterone products are FDA-approved only for use in men who lack or have low testosterone levels in conjunction with an associated medical condition.” The FDA has since issued another statement this year warning of the increased cardiovascular risks for men using products like Androgel and Androderm.
