Advertisements for Medical Devices, Implants Should Carry Warnings of Dangerous Side Effects, Infections
Date:12/17/2007

ee prosthesis surgery to be a serious source of infection, in some cases a high-risk source, and in some of the reporting hospitals, the infection rate may run as high as 5 percent or more.

Another recent study of 2003 nationwide data for primary total, partial, and revision hip replacements found the rates of readmission for any cause within 90 days of surgery ran between 9 percent for total replacement to 21 percent for partial.

"We do not want to discourage those in pain and facing loss of mobility from seeking out medical advice on implants. But we do believe that unintended side effects, which can include death, can be minimized if the public is better educated to avoid facilities which are not practicing the highest level of anti-infection practices," Vaughan said.

"Placing information about the danger of infection from surgery in device advertisements will speed the day that America's surgical centers and hospitals address this life-and-death problem," he added.
