But Doctor, It's My Hip!: The Fate of Failed Medical Devices
Fielder, John H.
Kennedy Institute of Ethics Journal. 1995 Jun; 5(2): 113-131.
It is difficult to study failed medical devices because of a lack of data. Routine device retrieval and analysis (DRA) is essential to performance evaluation, which, in turn, is essential to good patient care. We argue for the development of a national DRA program and medical device database and discuss the major ethical and policy issues associated with this proposal.
