Sacred Heart issues advisory to all transplant recipients

May 15, 2006 |

Sacred Heart Medical Center has advised testing for patients who received human tissue transplants that were later recalled after the supplier was accused of stealing body parts from corpses.

The parts came from New Jersey supplier Biomedical Tissue Services, whose owner has been indicted in Brooklyn with stealing body parts, forging consent and inspection documents and selling the unscreened human tissue to distributors.

Sacred Heart Medical Center was among thousands of hospitals being alerted by the Food and Drug Administration that some of its transplant body parts could be tainted with diseases.

So far, Sacred Heart has asked five patients who received tissue transplants in the last couple of years to get tested for HIV, Hepatitis B and C and Syphilis.

The hospital says the testing is just a precaution and that there is a good chance the patients aren't infected with any diseases.
