Have you suffered debilitating injuries after shoulder surgery? These problems could be due to the use of a Shoulder Pain Pump.
Shoulder Pain Pumps are devices that deliver pain medication through a catheter directly to the shoulder joint. The devices are typically used after surgery and are removed after a short recovery time – Typically 48 hours. There are multiple manufacturers of Shoulder Pain Pumps.
Numerous companies that manufacturer, market or distribute the pain pumps, including Stryker, DJO, Inc., I-Flow Inc., BREG Inc. and others have been named as defendants in litigation.
The use of a Shoulder Pain Pump and the effect of introducing medication directly into the shoulder joint have had catastrophic consequences for many patients. It has been linked to causing a debilitating condition called Postarthroscopic Glenohumeral Chondrolysis (PAGCL). PAGCL is an incurable and extremely painful condition marked by the deterioration of cartilage in the shoulder joint. The loss of this protective cartilage results in weakness of the afflicted joint, constant pain, diminished range of motion, and clicking, grinding or popping sounds when the arm is moved.
Dempsey and Kingsland, P.C. is experienced and well qualified to bring lawsuits on behalf of those who have suffered serious injuries due to the use of a Shoulder Pain Pump. The manufacturers of these pumps should be held accountable for failing to do adequate research and for marketing the pumps to the medical community for uses not approved by the FDA.
