Medical Device Injuries: FDA Data Reveals Increasing Risk

Posted by Jim Miron | May 31, 2016 | 0 Comments

The FDA receives thousands of reports each year detailing the deaths, serious injuries, and malfunctions associated with medical devices in order to monitor the safety and performance of medical devices. As a service to device manufacturers, physicians, patients, and researchers, the FDA has collected the data retrieved in these reports and made it available through its Manufacturer and User Facility Device Experience, or MAUDE, database. While the data can be complicated by the submission of incomplete or inaccurate information, as well as the potential for events to go unreported, the database does offer some significant insights into the way medical devices are interacting with the patients they are made to help.

We took a look at MAUDE data with a leading medical device expert, as well as additional reports produced by the FDA, to obtain a snapshot of how the medical device industry has changed over the past decade, and discovered an increasing trend towards major negative events (such as death, injury, and disabilities) being caused by failures in medical devices.
