defective or recalled medical devices
Modern advances in medical device technology have allowed millions of people to resume normal lives after a debilitating disease or injury. These products are used in thousands of applications each year, from hip and knee replacement to birth control and smoking cessation.
Most medical devices are highly advanced, thoroughly tested before introduction to market, and safe for patients. However, some manufacturers have taken shortcuts in design or safety testing which have led to serious injury or death from side effects.
In many cases, patients injured by defective medical devices weren’t warned of the most dangerous side effects by the manufacturer.
The Medical Device Resource Center at DrugNews.net is committed to improving patient safety by providing the latest updates on research, side effects, warnings, recalls and legal action related to medical devices.
