hHw do medical device defects occur?

The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) require manufacturers and sellers to notify the FDA when there are chances of device flaws. These instances consist of the use of a device which can result on illness, injury, or even fatal consequences. The manufacturers are then asked to submit Medical Device Reports (MDR) to the FDA which will be published as a notice for the public. The FDA receives about 100,000 MDRs annually. Some examples of defective medical devices are the following but not limited to:

  • Transvaginal Mesh
  • Hip Replacements
  • Talc Baby powder
  • IVC filters
  • Hip Implants & Hip System
  • Hip Implant
  • Essure
  • Attune knee system
  • Taxotere
  • Zofran
