Shoulder Pain Pumps

A shoulder pain pump (also called a pain pump catheter) delivers pain medication through small plastic tubes and is used after certain arthroscopic shoulder surgeries. Used for several days after surgery for post-operative pain, these devices deliver local anesthetic to the affected area. However, researchers have found that certain shoulder pain pump devices provide too much medication, which can result in permanent tissue and cartilage damage. The condition that tends to appear months after use is known as postarthroscopic glenohumeral chondrolysis (PAGCL) and typically leads to serious side effects such as:

  • Decreased range of motion
  • Stiffness
  • Constant pain
  • Deterioration of cartilage in the joint
  • Loss of strength in the joint

If you have experienced a serious injury from one of these defective medical devices, it is crucial that you speak with an experienced attorney as soon as possible.
