Medical Device Failures: Learning from Unexpected Outcomes


As indicated by a 2011 FDA study, medical device complications are growing faster than the industry. This webinar will examine common causes of medical device failures, including both surgical tools as well as implants. Pertinent case studies will be reviewed, as well as lessons to be learned from these unexpected outcomes.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • Common causes of orthopedic and vascular medical device failures
  • Why medical device failures do not necessarily indicate a device problem
  • Analysis techniques and tools to help determine the root cause of the failure
  • Basic fractographic interpretation of common device failure modes
