There are an ever-growing number of medical devices that help people achieve greater mobility and enhance their longevity. However, certain medical devices contain harmful defects that inflict serious injuries on their users.

Effects of Defective Medical Devices

When these devices function as indicated, no one questions the value they bring to people’s lives. However, a number of these devices have been known to malfunction at high rates. As these devices are implanted in a person’s body, they present major problems when they fail.

In some cases, the device may be replaced at no charge to the patient. However, undergoing another surgery to install a new device is an incredible burden for people. The resulting physical and emotional stress from installing the second device may be more than many patients are willing or able to bear.

Known Defective Products

There are certain medical products that are already known to cause patients serious discomfort and harm. Some of these devices include:

  • DePuy hip replacements
  • Medtronic Infuse bone grafts
  • Stryker Rejuvenate hip implants
  • Pelvic mesh slings
  • Pacemakers

The health effects of a defective medical product can be severe, and potentially fatal. The pain, the physical discomfort and the time spent at recovery are all costs people should not have to bear.
