Report Says Wright Sought to Block Rival Smith & Nephew’s Implant

Mass Device , a publication covering the medical device industry, is reporting that Wright Medical Group Inc., an Arlington, Tennessee-based maker of orthopedic medical devices, filed a citizen’s petition with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to stop rival Smith & Nephew’s Birmingham metal-on-metal hip implant from getting into the U.S. marketplace.

Smith & Nephew, a London-based global medical device maker, has facilities in Memphis.

According to the report, as the FDA in 2006 was reviewing Smith & Nephew’s pre-market approval application for the device — the first metal-on-metal hip implant — Wright filed a citizen’s petition alleging that the study behind the application was not adequate enough to prove the product’s safety and effectiveness. Wright argued that the clinical data behind the pre-market approval application was flawed because it covered the cases of only a single surgeon — Dr. Derek McMinn, inventor of the metal-on-metal hip implant.

The FDA granted two pre-market approvals to Smith & Nephew for the device. The first was in May 2006 and the second came in October of that year for additional sizes.

Wright Medical, meanwhile, has submitted at least two entries in the metal-on-metal class: the company’s Conserve and Lineage implants.

Lemonade Stand Philanthropy

If you’re anything like me, you’ve grown weary of constantly hearing about how selfish, uncaring and just plain awful kids are nowadays. I’m blessed to know some really terrific kids in our community, and a local girl named Janie Kathryn is a perfect example.

While I don’t know her personally, I was moved when I came across her story on Facebook. After successfully raising $117 for the Mid-South Food Bank back in May, Janie Kathryn once again set up her lemonade stand, this time with the intention of raising money to buy toys for children in need.

Her mom suggested Janie Kathryn use the proceeds to help stock the Memphis Child Advocacy Center’s Teddy Bear Wall. The center serves Memphis and Shelby County children who are victims of sexual and severe physical abuse. Staff members say everyone who enters the center is moved by its large Teddy Bear Wall, which houses dozens of cubbyholes stuffed with big, plush teddy bears of all colors and styles. Upon arrival at the center, each child selects a cuddly toy to bring them comfort during a traumatic time.

So, after selling out of lemonade in 3.5 hours on a recent June day, Janie Kathryn took the $134.50 she’d raised and headed to Build-A-Bear Workshop, where she personally built eight unique, huggable bears. She then delivered them to the staff at the Memphis Child Advocacy Center.

You can read more about little Janie Kathryn’s grassroots philanthropy by visiting her family’s blog.

Memphis Animal Services Seeks Logo Design Entries

Memphis Animal Services (MAS) is seeking entries for its logo contest, open to all Memphis residents ages 14 and older. The original contest deadline has now been extended to September 15.

“We extended the deadline to allow a window of opportunity for high school students to participate,” said James Rogers, MAS administrator. “We are looking forward to the creativity that our youth can bring to this contest, and hope to gain more entries once the school year begins.”

MAS says the logo contest was designed to reflect the city department’s community partnership and outreach efforts with animal owners, collaborative organizations and the general public.

Winners of the contest will be invited to adopt an animal from MAS, along with a month’s supply of pet food and a $50.00 PETCO gift card, sponsored by Friends of Memphis Animal Services. Minors, of course, must have parental consent for the adoption of any animal.

To participate, the design must be submitted in JPEG or PDF format (10 megabyte maximum) along with the entrant’s name, address, e-mail address and phone number.

Entries can be submitted to maslogocontest@memphistn.gov. Click here for official rules.

 

Huey’s Employees Host Shoe Drive

Huey’s Restaurants is asking its employees to collect new and gently-used shoes for people in need.

The shoes will be given to Soles4Souls, a Nashville-based nonprofit that since 2005 has donated over 17 million shoes to people in the U.S. and countries such Kenya, Nepal and Thailand.

Each Huey’s location will host a shoe drive starting Monday, July 16,, and ending Tuesday, July 31. A shoe bin will be provided by Soles4Souls, and the restaurant that donates the most shoes will be thrown a congratulatory party by Huey’s home office.

Huey’s is also partnering with Stacey Reed, a Memphian who’s hosting her own personal shoe drive for Soles4Souls, with a goal of collecting 30,000 pairs of shoes by the end of this year. Reed has garnered local support from the Memphis Fire Department and Office of Sustainability, as well as several offices, schools and churches.

For more information about Huey’s employee-wide shoe drive, read their blog entry.

Prison Stories

“Prison Stories V” will be staged Friday, July 13, and Saturday, July 14, at 8:00 pm at TheatreSouth, located in the basement of First Congregational Church, 1000 S. Cooper St.

In late 2009, Memphian Elaine Blanchard, a member of theatre troupe Voices of the South, approached the Shelby County Division of Corrections requesting that she be allowed to listen to women behind bars – 12 at a time, who would sit with Blanchard in a circle twice a week for 90 minutes at a time, over a period of four months. January 2010 saw the birth of Prison Stories, a long-term project inviting women in prison to openly communicate their stories of family, motherhood, violence, crime, love and loss.

After the end of each session, the women’s stories are interpreted on stage for the public by local actresses. The upcoming installment is directed by Irene Crist, stage managed by Gail Black and performed by Leah Nichols, Mandy Martin, Brooke Sarden, Jaclyn Suffel, Randi Sluder and Ann Wallace, with Tamar Love playing cello.

The goal of Prison Stories is to create improved future stories for the Memphis community as a whole.

Contact Voices of the South for ticket information.
