Legislators push for medical device regulation reform

Posted on October 13th, 2011 No Comments

Three members of the U.S. House of Representatives and the House Energy & Commerce Committee recently wrote a letter to three House committees, asking them to hold hearings on the regulation of metal-on-metal hip implant devices and brain stents.

Medical device regulation reform has recently become a common topic of discussion due to the recall of products like DePuy’s ASR hip replacement and the fact that many new medical devices do not need to meed safety requirements, but only have to prove that they are similar to an already approved device.

The letter states, “We believe that looking further into the ‘metal-on-metal’ hip implants and brain stents, two high-profile devices that appear to have resulted in significant harm to human health, would shed further light on the regulation of medical devices … We should also be examining evidence as to whether FDA device regulation has been ineffective in protecting the public from dangerous medical devices.”

If you or someone you love had a DePuy ASR hip implant that failed, contact the DePuy hip implant defect lawyers of Williams Hart at 800-761-3187 to speak with one of our attorneys about taking action against DePuy.
