Defective Medical Devices Can Greatly Harm Your Health
The medical device industry has provided doctors with a variety of implantable devices to help patients deal with a wide range of diseases, conditions and medical issues such as birth control. These devices, while offering hope, can result in injury, when they are not well-designed or manufactured or they have not been fully tested.
Common types of medical devices that have caused injury and death to patients include:
- Hip and knee replacements
- Birth control devices (NuvaRing and Mirena)
- IVC filters
- Transvaginal mesh
- Infuse bone graft
The Potential Risks Of Off-Label Use
Beyond insufficient testing or lack of rigorous manufacturing standards, some medical device manufacturers have been found to have promoted their devices for uses they were not approved for. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approves medical devices for only certain uses. This has not prevented manufacturers from pushing doctors to use their devices for unapproved uses to boost sales. These off-label uses can lead to serious injury or death.
