  • You want a reliable source about safe medical devices? Look at what EMA(European Medicines Agency) has approved, not FDA. There is a very good reason as to why it is MORE difficult to get something approved for the European market than for the U.S. and that reason is stricter rules and way more scientific work.

  • I had an IUD and had to have it removed after 18 months of pain. I complained since the first day. And was dismissed. It also didnt solve my initial issue. At 17 months, I could barely move without feeling a sharp stabbing pain inside. The following year, I had a doctor who allowed me to get a hysterectomy, which finally stopped my 3 year long period.

  • I'd be afraid to learn that malpracticioners studying to use medical devices to alter peoples' features for their secret agendas to entertain the idea of espionage and causing oppsies to sarcasticly apologize and act like thats not defamation by malpractice and a stupid apology supposed to clean up improper functions that caused an easily avoidable technique causing a traumatic ordeal. Thorough background checks for proper credentials to be practicing medicine for students of healthcare are extremely important. The time that we live in, people from out of nowhere shouldn't be tinkering around with peoples' medical records or even trying to pry their greedy ways to falsely diagnose people needing of proper conceltation and healthcare. Even if it is corrective surgery. An agreement of the process should be explained properly to the patient and no changes in processes should ever be taken while the patient is under anesthesia. The blood-type of the doctor should also be taken note of. For someone with a blood-type not comparable to the patient could be second guessing ideas to use out of context on a possible victim of malpractice. Getting hurt and not being properly taken care of by doctors and physicians to explain why and what happened to the patient can easily be overlooked by malpracticioners. They don't like to blow up a dirty doctors laundry out in the open because it would be humiliating and hard to find a well paying debt-free job. Some individuals look very entitled and super important outside of work, that's not the type of person you'd want playing boardgame, 'Operation', with your body or even your mouth! Doctors that write their hypothesis and proof their theories are good-students that don't need to teach others not serious about the craft of healing. Wasting money to get malpracticed on by a random know-how is a serious lawsuit waiting to happen. If my doctor is learning on the job, why didn't they attend school to practice on dummies instead of practicing on real life people without the okay to go. If a doctor that dropped out of school and didn't attend the proper college to be practicing medicine is ripping around in somebodys person why were they even there in the first place, what honest business hires malpracticioners to make peoples' wrongs worse? None; guilty by association is always a go to. Being a doctor is supposed to be an honest job, not about money and laughing at patients because they let a dunce practice on them. Quick fixes are not allowed and anyone fixing someones body like a automobile is totally in the wrong field of study. Quickly diagnosing patients, taking the wrong steps by choice, and letting a patient heal thinking everything's okay because a new doctor says so has been malpracticed on. They'll be left going to a second opinion to figure out how a very simple surgery was complicated because of techniques not needed to be taken. Having a random know-how to install a foreign object into a persons' body can not be safe. Some malpracticioners are prone to missing pieces being stuck in their patients body, all they'll say, "it's biodegradable and totally safe". Those people don't mean to cure or heal any ailment. Life at a mature age isn't meant to be taken for granted and patients shouldn't be sarcasticly talked to when attempting to install foreign objects that have severe effects by having a certain purpose to assist in living a quality life. If the object fails while in the patients body, that could be a lawsuit for the malpractisioner depending on the patient and the pain and suffering they're being forced to withstand because of their trust being betrayed by a "doctor". I bet some people didn't know malpractisioners do go to jail, and their families too get investigated on their attitudes and lifes' purposes. It's disgusting what people; that should be working at a hardware store; would do to a person asking to be healed! Gross lengths male-shovenists would go just to get a peekaboo of a woman's vagina. Personally... there's adult film. Being a pervert in a professional learned setting is obviously a wrong route to take to snoop around work places for the man. Going to a professional hospital is the best way to get an opinion and even multiple opinions whether or not to go through "special" surgeries. My friend wanted a penis-enlargement... he just snipp't his lager. What a joke, be happy with what your mother gave you! STOP MALPRACTICING!!! Kids stay in school and don't talk to strange men.

  • There's another problem that it discussed here... I have a medical device that I need for a health condition (that I won't go into because... gross and personal) but the company who makes it tried to market it as a cool Convenient thing for people who don't desperately need it like me... but for people without health issues it's annoying and many of them hate it. So they collected all of the complaints from people they marketed it to who don't need it and are discontinuing it, even though I need it to function and find it works perfectly for me. So I guess I'm just out of luck because of their misguided advertising.

  • While it's true that there are certainly charletons out there who will release products without proper testing, only looking to make a quick buck, there are also many out there working in the medical device industry who DO genuinely care about helping patients and improving lives. Please don't lump everyone working into medical device industry together simply because there are greedy idiots out there.

At least with overly lax standards, you can see the problem and know to be alert. With overly strict standards, there's nothing that you can really do except maybe go the a country where the standards are less strict.

  • My mom had that hip. But the doctor installed it wrong, so instead of rubbing, the socket just wasn't attached, so she had horrible pain for 2 years, doctors told her it was her back and wanted to do spinal surgery, and when they finally found out it was the hip, she had escaped cobalt poisoning. So, two bad luck events got canceled out to one less-bad bad.

Aka bacteria free! So if you are reading this and your loved one needs to have an ercp procedure, ask your doctor if they can use a “single-use duodenalscope.

  • As a biomedical engineering student, it hurts me to see patients get hurt. However, the regulation work is just not that simple. In order to produce scientifically sound result, and catch all potential problems, a clinical trial can and probably should last years, and cost is easily in the tens of millions of dollars. Compound the development failure rate, it would be hard for companies to justify investing into innovation. Further, 510(k) allows a lot of less critical devices to be cleared. When a company produce a similar enough device to a existing device, and the failure of the device is not a cause of immediate or serious health concern, it would be unfair to require a clinical trial for it. So getting rid of 510(k) completely would block off a lot if innovations. That's not to say 510(k) is a perfect process. It allows new, low risk device that shows "significant equivalence" to an existing device to be cleared for marketing. However, the term "significance equivalence" needs a lot more enforcement mechanism. For example, I would argue the metal-on-metal hip replacement is not "significantly equivalent" to previous devices. Metal-on-plastic hip replacement allows the harder metal to wear down the softer polymer, and shed harmless particles. However, metal-on-metal hip doesn't have the same mechanism to prevent shedding of metallic particles. So 510(k) does need to be revised to allow FDA to better regulate cleared devices, and ensure they are safe and effective.

That makes me really happy to live in Europe, where the EU has agonizingly detailed (and sometimes really annoying) rules and guidelines for everything, from toilet paper to car tyres, from filling material for pillows to ingredient lists on food packages, and yes ... they actually make sure your pacemaker doesn't shock you to death and your artificial hip doesn't make your flesh rot.
