As we have written in previous issues, pain pumps used after shoulder surgery have caused injury to the shoulder joint in many individuals. Approximately 100 number of lawsuits have been filed all over the country. One pain pump manufacturer settled a case in the fall of 2008. There was a trial in Portland beginning on February 23, 2009 on behalf of several plaintiffs against one manufacturer Stryker. Stryker is one of several pain pump manufacturers which marketed the pumps off label resulting in cartilage death in the shoulder joint. This injury can lead to devastating damage to the shoulder joint potentially resulting in additional surgeries, including shoulder replacement or fusion. We have cases filed all over the country and we are working with the lawyers who have trial scheduled in Portland to help them get ready for trial. We have a case set for trial in Birmingham, Alabama, later this year.
