FDA Issues Recalls to da Vinci Robotic Products
In December 2013, The U.S. Food & Drug Administration issued a Class II recall to Intuitive Surgical Inc., the parent of the da Vinci surgical system. The recall of 1386 devices involves friction with the instrument arms that can cause them to stall; thus causing malfunction in the product and potential harm to the patient.
Typically an FDA Class II recall indicates that a device may cause “temporary or medically reversible” health problems, as well as a remote possibility of serious health problems.
In addition to the FDA recalls the company has issued two (2) voluntary Recalls of numerous parts to the intricate surgical robot, it is estimated that the recalls affect close to 100K components and parts.
The da Vinci machine is used in close to 400K surgeries a year and has reportedly caused many patients serious harm according to lawsuits filed, including but not limited to the following items listed below:
- Lacerations to internal organs, including intestines
- Burns to internal organs and blood vessels
- Excessive bleeding
- Nerve damage
- Severe Bowel Injuries
- Punctured blood vessels or ureters
- Various Vaginal injuries
The reported injuries have led to Intuitive Surgical Inc., being the subject of anticipated 100’S of lawsuit to be filed throughout the U.S. in both State and Federal Courts. However, it is expected that close to 1000 plaintiffs have signed up with national law firms prosecuting da Vinci claims, though many of these claims are signed up under what is called a “tolling agreement”, which stays the statute of limitations to file a claim. Thus, it is impossible to fully know how many lawsuit claims Intuitive is facing at this current time. Intuitive has reported in SEC 10-K filings that they have reserved $67MM to defend and settle some product liability claims in respect to the Robotic Surgery Claims. Although there have been no global settlement discussions to date in the news media, it is anticipated that some cases – if settled- could top $500K in some cases according to legal experts that Legal-Bay has conversed with.
