DePuy Synthes Radial Head Prothesis System Lawsuits

The DePuy Synthes Radial Head Prosthesis System is an implant device that replaces elbow joints. In 2016, DePuy recalled over 50,000 implants due to concerns that the stem attached to the device was prone to loosening. In devices that have loosened, patients are at risk of suffering serious side effects including fractures, bone tissue loss, and severe discomfort.

What is the DePuy Synthes Radial Head Prothesis System?

The DePuy Synthes Radial Head Prosthesis System replaces the arm’s natural radial head. The two-part device contains a stem that is implanted into the radius and a head that supplants the natural radial head. The device is designed to restore joint function through primary and revision joint replacement. Replacement of the natural radial head may be indicated when the patient: (i) has suffered a fracture that can’t be repaired, (ii) requires revision surgery to replace worn out elbow implants, or (iii) suffers from certain degenerative diseases, such as arthritis.

What is Happening with the DePuy Synthes Radial Head Prothesis System?

Numerous patients have informed the manufacturer that the stem on the device had become loose. DePuy could not immediately determine why the device had malfunctioned in some patients. DePuy concluded that the head component was not implicated in the defect and would continue to be used for revision surgeries that only required replacement of the head component.

By late 2016, Johnson & Johnson issued a voluntary recall of the DePuy Synthes Radial Head Prosthesis System because a component that implants the device in the radius bone could detach. When this occurs, the patient may experience destruction of bone tissue, pain, fracture and joint problems.

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reported that 40 individuals experienced loosening of the DePuy Synthes replacement system. The FDA labeled the company’s action a Class 2 Device Recall which involves a product that may cause “a temporary or reversible health problem or where there is a slight chance that it will cause serious health problems or death.”
