Medical device manufacturers are responsible for making sure their devices – devices implanted directly into the human body – are safe. When these companies fail to live up to that responsibility, it’s important to have an attorney experienced with medical device litigation on your side.
When a medical device is implanted in a patient’s body, even a minor issue can become life threatening. Manufacturers of these devices have a responsibility to protect consumers from harm. When a patient faces injury or even death due to a defective device, the manufacturer may be responsible for compensating them or their loved ones.

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is estimated to affect between two and nine percent of the U.S. adult population. Still, many cases are thought to go undiagnosed, fitting with studies that have discovered much higher rates of OSA. Once diagnosed with OSA, patients are generally instructed to sleep on their sides, quit smoking, lose weight, and decrease their use of sedative medications. In conjunction with these measures, many are prescribed nightly use of a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) or bi-level positive airway pressure (BiPAP) machine. These machines push air through a hose, into a mask, and into the patient’s airway to keep it open during sleep. Patients are to wear them at night or anytime while they are sleeping to decrease the risk of airway collapse.
DePuy ASR hip replacement systems have been recalled by the manufacturer after years of doctors warning of large numbers of defective DePuy metal hip replacements. Many individuals who received defective hip replacements have had to undergo painful subsequent revision surgeries to replace or even remove the failed hip implants.

There are a number of medical conditions or accidents that could cause a person to develop a hernia or a weakness in the abdominal wall. Many patients were told a simple surgery with a medical device called hernia mesh would correct their hernia, but these devices have now proven not only ineffective, but also dangerous.
IVC filters are medical devices designed to prevent blood clots. IVC filters are most commonly implanted in patients diagnosed with deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or pulmonary embolus, trauma victims, immobile patients, and patients at risk for clotting that have recently undergone a surgical procedure or will soon have one; however, they have now proven to incredibly dangerous.
Transvaginal mesh was designed to help treat prolapsed pelvic organs and stress urinary incontinence (SUI). Now, the FDA has issued a warning that not only is transvaginal mesh ineffective at treating pelvic organ prolapse and SUI, it can degrade and cause significant additional damage.
Energy-based laser devices have been used to help treat serious conditions like cancer and genital warts, while also aiding in surgeries such as hysterectomies. These devices have helped many patients, but the manufacturers of these devices are promoting them for uses unapproved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). In July 2018, the FDA sent out a warning to doctors and patients regarding serious injuries reported after the use of these dangerous medical devices. The FDA warns against using energy-based devices to perform vaginal rejuvenation or other vaginal cosmetic procedures.
Minimally invasive procedures are designed to reduce surgical risks for patients. Unfortunately, in one type of surgery used to treat epilepsy, defective medical devices used during the operations are harming patients and causing permanent damage. In April 2018, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warned patients and doctors that a device used in minimally invasive epilepsy surgery was subject to a Class I recall, the most serious type of recall issued by the FDA.
