Stryker OASYS Occipito-Cervico-Thoracic System Recall Lawyers

0 Comment

Our Michigan Stryker spine implant lawyers represent patients suffering from serious complications, or having to undergo a revision surgery after having the recalled Stryker OASYS Occipito-Cervico-Thoracic System implanted.  Patients who suffer from complications due to the defective nature of the cervical spine implant manufactured by Stryker do have legal rights and may be able to pursue a lawsuit against the manufacturer for their injuries.  Often times these lawsuits result in significant settlements for the patient.

Our Michigan defective medical device law firm is actively working with other national law firms to win the best settlement for our clients.  We are actively filing lawsuits against the manufacturer on behalf of the patients suffering complications related to the Stryker OASYS Occipito-Cervico-Thoracic System recall, or OASYS Midline Occiput Plate recall.

OASYS Midline Occiput Plate is part of the OASYS Occipito-Cervico-Thoracic System used to promote fusion of the cervical spine and occipito-cervico-thoracic junction (Occiput – T3). The OASYS Midline Occiput Plate provides stabilization at the junction between the occipital bone and the vertebrae in the cervical spine.

The OASYS Midline Occiput Plate recall was issued after reports of the pin that connects the tulip head to the plate body fracturing and causing severe harm to those who had the system implanted.

Due to the fact that Stryker Orthopaedics placed the OASYS Occipito-Cervico-Thoracic System on the market that included a part (Midline Occiput Plate) that is dangerous for the patient, the company may be held liable for damages caused by the implant.  Patients who have suffered significant injuries from the recalled Stryker OASYS Occipito-Cervico-Thoracic System or OASYS Midline Occiput Plate do have legal rights to file a Michigan defective medical device lawsuit against the manufacturer.  The lawsuits seek damages for pain and suffering, all medical costs incurred to date, medical expenses for any future treatment or surgery, lost wages, spousal damages, and punitive damages.

Some of the most common complications associated with the Stryker OASYS Occipito-Cervico-Thoracic System includes, but not limited to:

  • Blood loss
  • Nerve injury
  • Need for Revision Surgery

The FDA issued a Class 1 recall on the device, indicating that using the device could result in serious injury or death.  A Class 1 recall is one of the most serious warning labels the FDA distributes on a product.

The affected products being recalled were distributed from April 23, 2010, through February 12, 2013 and are listed below.
