Defective Medical Devices

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recalls defective medical devices on a regular basis. Sometimes there have been reports of injuries. In other cases, insufficient test trials have come to light, calling into question the safety of the medical devices. When medical treatments do not have the expected effect or when a patient using a medical device becomes unexpectedly worse, or dies, it is reasonable to question the integrity of that device. Reviewing FDA medical device recalls is one way of determining a possible cause of injury.

Potentially dangerous medical devices subject to FDA safety alerts and manufacturer recalls in recent years have included:

  • A range of knee, hip and other joint replacement devices, including implants from DePuy Orthopaedics and Stryker Orthopaedics
  • Certain Covidien Shiley adult tracheostomy tubes
  • Smiths Medical Medfusion Model 4000 syringe infusion pump
  • Respironics Inc., Trilogy 100, 200 and 202 ventilators
  • Arrow International Inc. (subsidiary of Teleflex Inc.), Multi-Lumen venous catheterization Set with Blue FlexTip ARROWg+ard catheter
  • Ikaria INOmax DS drug delivery system

Many others have been recalled in recent years. Other medical devices might be shown to be defective because of manufacturing defects, even if the devices do not appear on any recall lists. If you had surgery or were recently hospitalized, you might not even know what medical devices were used to treat you, but you have the right to know. You also have the right to know who made decisions that may have resulted in your injury caused by a defective medical device. Was the responsible party your doctor or a hospital administrator, a medical device manufacturer or a government entity?

You also have the right to know whether you have a viable product liability claim against one or more responsible parties. At Eichen Crutchlow Zaslow & McElroy, LLP, we review potential medical malpractice and product liability cases on behalf of people who may have suffered serious harm because of negligence of another person or company. We will gladly discuss your potential injury claim and explain how we can help determine what your next step should be toward pursuing compensation for your injuries.
