Does my implant put me at risk?
Patients in the United States use medical devices to repair a bodily dysfunction and to better their quality of life. Although these devices must be approved by the Food and Drug Administration, not all defects are immediately apparent, making long-term use risky. We represent clients who have been injured by defective medical devices, including:
Transvaginal Mesh (TVM) – This medical device is used to treat stress urinary incontinence and to repair pelvic organ prolapse. Approximately 10% of women with this mesh implant suffer vaginal erosion within one year of their surgery.
Metal-to-Metal Hip Implants – This device is used to help patients with painful hip deterioration. In 2013, after industry conferences and studies, the FDA announced that in the long-term the device can begin eroding, causing damage to the surrounding bone and tissue. Pieces of metal may also break off from the implant, and the metal will then enter the patient’s bloodstream.
Patients with these devices have suffered severe side effects, and the threat for injury is very real. If you or a loved one have one of these medical devices implanted, it is in your best interest to contact both a doctor and a lawyer immediately – especially if you are suffering from the device’s associated injuries.
