Defective Products

A defective product poses a serious health risk to people requiring its use. Millions of people use a variety of devices under the belief that they are safeguarded from a serious health risk. Medical device defects leave patients at serious risk of incurring a debilitating injury or even death if the issue goes undetected. A medical device is an instrument designed to aid in the diagnosis and/or treatment of health-related issues. When functioning properly, medical devices have the potential to vastly improve the lives of people suffering from chronic diseases, illness or health-related abnormalities. As the technology incorporated in the design of medical devices continues to improve, so too does the potential with which said devices may aid in the diagnosis and treatment of many health-related issues.


NuvaRing Birth Control

The NuvaRing Birth Control Ring has health risks relating to blood clots in the legs and lungs, which may lead to embolismsstroke, or heart attack. The FDA forced a warning for birth control patches relating to a similar problem and several young women have died as a result of complications. The drug’s warning section now notes that the these types of birth control expose women to higher levels of estrogen than most birth control pills.


Defective Hip Replacements

DePuy Orthopaedics announced a recall of their prosthetic hips recently. Depuy announced they recalled two types of hip implants on Aug. 26, 2010. The company said it was recalling the defective devices because many patients needed further surgery to replace the implants after they failed.

The two devices being recalled are the ASR XL Acetabular System and the ASR Hip Resurfacing System. Both are known as metal-on-metal implants.
