The Artimplant Artelon Spacer is a defective medical product for patients with thumb disabilities manufactured by Arimplant AM and distributed by Small Bone Innovations. The product is sold without any warnings about its potentially dangerous side effects. The product is intended for patients who suffer from Arthritis; it is meant to relieve pain and, at the same time, keep the thumb sufficiently strong to perform daily tasks.
Like many other implants, the Artelon Spacer can potentially be rejected by the body into which it was implanted. There have been many reports of serious injuries being sustained as a result of the negative reaction to the implant. These reactions are usually manifested by lessened hand and thumb mobility, egregious pain, inflammation, swelling, and inflammatory synovitis. Essentially, many symptoms of Arthritis become exacerbated.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has received a number of complaints about the Artelon Spacer and about Artelon Spacer adverse effects. However, it has not yet taken action to recall this product. Osteoarthritis patients are still languishing as a result of this lack of action.
Many patients unfortunately need painful and costly revision surgery. Sometime surgeons will have to borrow tendons from one part of the body to replace tendons damaged beyond repair in the thumb area. If you are a patient who has needed revision surgery, you might be entitled to recover damages in an Artelon CMC Spacer settlement.
