The devices by Cook and other manufacturers have been known to fracture, or become dislodged and drift towards vital organs. Designed to be removed, they often can’t. One Cook Celect IVC filter lawsuit filed last April alleges negligence and a defective design.

Medtronic SynchroMed Infusion Pump: a History of Problems October 15, 2017. By Gordon Gibb.

Similarly, medical device manufacturers duly note the shortcomings of their devices on their websites, but only after you land on the home page that boasts the virtues of their product. Meanwhile, the plaintiff filing the Medtronic SynchroMed lawsuit, for example, shakes his head as he recalls the time the life-saving device allegedly landed him in the hospital.
