Hip replacements and other defective medical devices can cause severe, crippling pain, and may require revision surgery.
Unsafe Medical Devices
Over the last several years, thousands of people have filed lawsuits against the manufacturers of hip implants, knee replacements and transvaginal mesh. Plaintiffs in many of these cases claim the products from the device makers caused them severe, crippling pain, and forced them to have revision surgery.
Hip Implants: Recipients of metal-on-metal hips have reported infections and metal poisoning after metal ions from the devices entered their blood stream. Others have shown loss of bone around the implant, which leads to loosening of the hip.
Knee Replacements: While these implants help people regain their ability to walk, the most common problem is loosening of the device, which is caused by a faulty product or surgeon error. Faulty implants also can lead to bone fractures, infection and dislocation.
Transvaginal Mesh: The product was manufactured to treat pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence in women. However, complications include recurrence of prolapse, erosion, vaginal scarring, nerve damage, bleeding and infection, among other painful conditions.
Complications from dangerous drugs and medical devices are serious to the well-being and quality of life of those affected.
