Another 1.7 million or so suffered serious or life-changing injuries because of them.

Examples of Highly Dangerous Medical Devices

There are thousands of medical devices available on the market today. While all of them have the potential to become hazardous if they become defective, there are a handful that are known by the FDA and other health and medical groups to be particularly problematic.

Five of the most dangerous medical devices according to the FDA are:

  1. Hernia mesh devices: After surgery to correct or alleviate a hernia, mesh devices are often implanted to keep the hernia in place as the wound heals. Some of these devices have been known to cause internal organ perforation due to migration, which can cause severe side effects like internal bleeding.
  2. Hip prosthesis: Metal ball-and-joint hip implants of various designs have been known to splinter after implantation. The metal slivers can cause internal bleeding, metal poisoning the blood, and other health complications.
  3. Spinal stimulators: In an attempt to fight chronic pain, a spinal stimulator can be implanted in a patient. It is meant to send electrical signals to the spine that nullify pain signals. However, defective spinal stimulators can exacerbate the patient’s pain, cause paralysis or debilitation, and require dangerous surgery to remove again.
  4. Defibrillators: Electrical implants have been used to regulate the heartbeats of patients at risk of heart attack or stroke. Automatic defibrillators such as these can become fatal when defective, triggering the heart problems they are meant to stop.
  5. Insulin pumps: An implanted insulin pump is meant to supplemental the pancreas by regulating the body’s insulin levels. Defective insulin pumps – with a sensor or not – can cause hyperglycemia or hypoglycemia.

    "Satisfied client"
    I hired Ken Barton to help me through a pretty significant legal dispute that I experienced. Throughout the litigation, Ken communicated well with me and was very responsive, and I could tell that he really cared about my case. We got a decent outcome from the case, and I was able to move on with my life. I hope that I won’t need his services in the future, but I would definitely hire him again.
