Stryker’s OASYS spine plate product line are medical devices that are used in cervical spinal fusion procedures. The spine plates are meant to be permanently implanted into the spine of patients. These devices hit the market in April 2010 and have been used for patients who require stabilization where the occipital bone and the vertebrae meet in the cervical spine.
Unfortunately, these spine plates have raised a number of concerns for patients and doctors alike. Since the device was introduced to the public, there have been several reports of complications such as blood loss and serious nerve injuries. Finally, in April 2013, Stryker and the FDA issued an Urgent Medical Device Recall for all OASYS Midline Occipital Plates that were distributed between the dates of April 23, 2010 and February 12, 2013. Since the recall was announced, several lawsuits have been filed against Stryker.
At this time, litigation is still pending in these lawsuits, as more are expected to be filed in the near future. These lawsuits may be consolidated into a single class action lawsuit or multidistrict litigation. Therefore, compensation in these lawsuits have not yet been determined.
Medical device failures can be catastrophic depending on the seriousness of the injuries caused. In the case of the malfunctioning Stryker spine plates, serious and irreversible damage can be caused to nerves inside the cervical spine. Additionally, revision surgeries will be necessary in many of the patients who have been affected by these defective spinal plates.
