MRI/MRA Contrast Dyes can cause NSF disease
NSF is an extremely disabling disease characterized by high blood pressure, burning, itching, swelling and hardening of the skin. Other symptoms include red or dark patches on the skin; pain deep in the hip bones or ribs and muscle weakness. NSF can progress to the point of causing severe stiffness in joints, and it can lead to death.
It can take some time after Gadolinium exposure for NSF symptoms to appear, and the disease often progresses very slowly. At this time, there is no treatment or cure for NSF. However, improved kidney function does seem to slow the development of the disease. Unfortunately, for many patients with NSF, the only way to improve their kidney function is with a transplant.
The MRI-NSF injury lawyers at Parker Waichman LLP can help victims of NSF obtain compensation for their Gadolinium MRI contrast dye injuries to help them recover lost wages, the costs of medical care, pain and suffering and damages from the makers of Gadolinium Contrast Dye used in MRIs.
