When Medical Devices Malfunction

A manufacturer has a responsibility to make a product that is safe for its intended use. When the product is an implantable medical device, this principle is even more important. Extensive testing must be carried out in the manufacturer's development lab, by independent testing services and in clinical trials. Finally, the device must be approved for use by the Food and Drug Administration.

But sometimes, medical device manufacturers can fail to identify defects in design, materials, components and assembly. Other times, they are so eager to bring the product to market that they overlook problematic aspects of the product. The real test of a medical device, however, comes when it is implanted into a living human being.
