Shoulder Pain Pump Manufacturers Have Been Silent
What’s even more alarming, reports are showing that pain pump manufacturers, which did not seek FDA approval for the procedure in question, are aware of the risks, but have remained silent. Only I-Flow has issued warnings on product labels making physicians aware of the dangers.
According to reports, physicians were placing the catheter portion of the pain pumps directly into patient’s shoulder joints. The problems don’t generally arise until three to 12 months later when victims discover that the cartilage in their shoulder joint has disintegrated.
If you have suffered from chondrolysis following the use of a shoulder pain pump, you may be able to file a claim against the manufacturer. For information regarding your rights and legal options, contact one of our experienced Northern Kentucky injury at (859) 578-4444 or (888) 606-5297.
