Defective Medical Devices
Every year, millions of Americans will rely on a medical device to help them recover from a serious injury or illness.
Medical technology can progress at an incredible rate, and sometimes testing and studies cannot keep up with these advancements. It is the duty of the Food and Drug Administration to review these advances and ensure that new treatment options, medications and medical devices are safe for public consumption. Unfortunately, this is not always the case, and many people in desperate need of relief suffer from the consequences of unsafe medical devices. Far too often, the goal of drug and medical technology companies is not patient safety, but rather increasing business and satisfying shareholders.
Thousands of medical devices are recalled every year due to serious product defects that cause severe harm to patients. Many patients will require revision surgery and extensive and painful rehabilitation to recover from the damage these defective products can cause. When medical device manufacturers attempt to bypass FDA regulations by failing to disclose product failures or possible safety defects, they must be held responsible for the serious injuries that can result.
Medical devices that were recently recalled after causing serious harm to patients include:
- Metal-on-metal hip implants such as:
- Knee replacements
- Transvaginal Mesh
- Mirena IUDs
- And more
Common causes for medical device recalls include:
- Defective design
- Device failure
- Exposure to toxic substances
- Failure to warn patients about possible side effects
- High rates of revision surgery
- And more
