Depuy Shoulder Implants Cause Complications
Shoulder implants manufactured by Depuy have recently been linked to complications and shoulder pain. The Depuy Shoulder Mitek Versalock Anchor is a knotless anchor system used to repair rotator injuries, designed to help sutures or stitches hold tendons firmly in place against the bone during surgery. However, the design of the anchor may cause the rotator cuff tendons to separate from the bone.
The Versalock Anchor may partially pull out of the bone or completely detach from the bone, causing complications that may require revision surgery. Failure is usually linked to anchor pull-out.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has filed countless reports about Depuy Shoulder Mitek Versalock Anchor failure. Recent medical studies confirm that the post-surgery rate of complications with Depuy shoulder implants is around 10 percent.
