Cellino & Barnes is Investigating Serious Injuries Associated with Pain Pumps
A device used to help reduce pain, has been found to actually cause pain in patients after shoulder surgery.
Many patients who undergo arthroscopic shoulder surgery receive pain pumps to help in their recuperation. The pain pump is inserted through a catheter and stays in place for several days after surgery to deliver pain relief to the shoulder joint.
Recent studies suggest that these pain pumps may deliver too much medication, which can cause a condition known as Postarthroscopic Glenohumeral Chondrolysis (“PAGCL”).
PAGCL is a loss of cartilage in the shoulder following shoulder surgery and is very painful. Side effects, such as increased pain, stiffness, clicking or popping in the shoulder, decreased range of motion, and loss of strength usually appear 3-12 months after shoulder surgery.
“There could potentially be thousands of people affected by these pain pumps throughout the country” states attorney Stephen Barnes of Cellino & Barnes. “We urge anyone who has been diagnosed with PAGCL to contact us as soon as possible.”
