Fluoroquinolones and Aortic Disorders Webinar
About the Webinar:
Fluoroquinolone antibiotics (FLQs), including Cipro® and Levaquin®, have been linked to increased incidents of aortic aneurysms and dissections. On December 20, 2018 the FDA updated the safety announcement to recognize the risk of aortic disorders, expanding on the previously recognized risks for permanent damage to tendons, joints, nerves, and central nervous system. Hear from John Restaino, John Dalimonte, and Kim Loutey for a rapid response discussion on the science, important studies, future litigation, and case selection considerations.
