Have you or a loved one suffered cartilage deterioration or other shoulder symptoms due to use of a shoulder pain pump?
Shoulder pain pumps are medical devices used to treat pain after shoulder surgery. These pumps are implanted into the shoulder itself. The pumps dispense pain killers directly into the shoulder area by means of a catheter.
The pain medication is distributed to the patient for up to 72 hours. Then, after 72 hours, the device is removed. Ideally, the shoulder pain pump allows a shoulder surgery patient to effectively manage their pain symptoms. This can make recovery from surgery easier.
Problems with Shoulder Pain Pumps
Medical studies have recently linked shoulder pain pumps to a condition known as Postarthroscopic Glenohumeral Chondrolysis, also known PAGCL. PAGCL is a condition that causes deterioration of the cartilage in the shoulder. One shoulder condition which may have been addressed by surgery is replaced by another.
Some of the symptoms of PAGCL are pain in the shoulder, stiffness in the shoulder, and shoulder weakness. Other symptoms include grinding, popping, and clicking. PAGCL patients have also reported a decreased range of motion. These symptoms may require a further shoulder surgery. Because of this, you may need to seek compensation to pay for the cost of continuing medical care and the pain and suffering experienced due to a problematic shoulder pain pump.
