DePuy Synthes Elbow Implant Lawsuit

Defective elbow implant recalled, pulled from the market

The DePuy Synthes elbow implant has been pulled from the market after people who received the devices began to have problems with the radial stem loosening at the stem-bone interface. Affected patients are filing elbow implant lawsuits against Depuy Synthes in order to be compensated for pain, disabling side effects, lost wages and medical costs. RPWB’s respected pharmaceutical and medical device lawyers are represent patients nationwide who have been injured by defective medical implants.

In December 2016, DePuy Synthes, a division of Johnson & Johnson, recalled the elbow implant after patients and doctors began reporting problems with loosening where the stem attached to the bone. At the time of the recall, more than 50,000 of the elbow implants had been manufactured and distributed, according to the FDA. Reports of problems with the devices had been known for several years prior to the devices being recalled.

Patients who received the Depuy Synthes Radial Head Prosthesis System may experience the following problems:

  • Pain
  • Device loosening
  • Bone loss
  • Poor range of motion
  • Bone fracture
  • Soft tissue damage
  • Revision surgery
