Defective Medical Implants

Alabama Defective Medical Equipment Lawyers


Each year medical device makers offer for sale and use hundreds of medical devices designed to be implanted in the human body. These devices include joint replacement implants, such as knees, hips and other joints; bone stabilization implants, such as plates, rods, pins and screws; synthetic surgical mesh, such as transvaginal mesh, transabdominal mesh and mesh slings; cosmetic implants, such as facial implants, dental implants and breast implants; and other surgical instruments, devices and monitors. Improperly designed or tested medical implants can and often do cause serious injuries and even death.


Before a medical implant, such as an artificial hip or knee or cardiac pacemaker, can be sold in the United States, the manufacturer must put the device through testing and trials. The manufacturer then must submit the implant to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for approval before the device can be distributed in the United States. Due to its limited resources, the FDA is unable to carefully test and screen all such devices or surgical tools. Sometimes, the FDA approves a new device or implant on the basis of its "substantial similarity" to an already existing device. Unfortunately, this can and has led to instances where a device has been approved and it is later discovered that the device is defective as failures occur after the device or implant has been placed in patients.
