Dangerous Medical Devices

Dangerous medical devices are medical devices that may do more harm than good. Instead of solving medical issues, these devices might actually make the issues worse and cause more problems.

Dangerous medical devices often lack proper research and testing prior to being sold to the public. Rather than identifying and fixing defects during the testing stages, some defects aren’t discovered until they are already on the market. Hip implants, for example, may loosen or rub together after implantation and create dangerous debris in the body. These defects can cause joint pain, joint swelling and additional pain and suffering to the patient. The makers of these defective hip implants then recall the implants.

Common dangerous devices include the following:

Fortunately, not all medical devices become dangerous. Most of the time, approved devices go on to help millions of people live better, healthier lives.

Dangerous medical devices end up on the market in various ways – sometimes due to the carelessness or lack of professionalism from a healthcare professional. If you need a medical device, like the ones listed above, be sure to do research on the device and discuss the device and procedure at length with your personal medical professional.

Patients who received dangerous devices may wish to take legal action. If a patient wishes to sue, their lawsuit will be filed as a product liability case and the patient should seek professional legal assistance.
