Ozurdex Recall Attorneys in Los Angeles

If You Received This Intravitreal Implant between November 2016 and December 2018 and Your Vision Suffered, You May Have a Claim

Ozurdex, made by Allergan, is an injectable implant that releases dexamethasone, a corticosteroid, into your eye. Its use has been increasing since 2014, when it was approved to treat a wider variety of conditions; doctors now recommend this treatment to patients with:

  • Macular edema secondary to branch or central retinal vein occlusion (BRVO/CRVO)
  • Noninfectious posterior uveitis
  • Diabetic macular edema (DME)

Once it is injected, the product dissolves, providing a slow-release delivery of corticosteroid dexamethasone, which can reduce inflammation of the retina to help patients see better.

In December 2018, Many Batches Were Recalled

However, in December 2018, after many batches of Ozurdex were recalled in 7 other countries around the world, Allergan recalled 22 separate lots of Ozurdex here in the U.S. Allergan indicated that the reason for the recall, which it reported to the FDA, was that during a routine inspection a silicone particulate approximately 300 microns in diameter was observed in the implants. Allergan confirmed that the silicone particulate originated from the needle sleeve used to inject the implant into the patient’s eye. The Ozurdex injections had been distributed by Allergan in the U.S. between November 2016 and November 2018. Allergan reported that there was a remote possibility of corneal reaction if the particulate migrates to the anterior chamber of the patient’s eye.

Patients who were injected with recalled Ozurdex can experience injuries including retinal detachments, corneal damage, the need for surgery and even the need for corneal grafting and transplant surgeries. Additionally, patients injured by the injection of an Ozurdex product that was later recalled, can suffer permanent blindness from the destruction caused by toxic levels of migrated steroid.

The complications of an Ozurdex migration are both uncomfortable and expensive for patients. If you have gone through this painful process, you might be able to receive compensation for your damages. Our experienced team at Shoop | A Professional Law Corporation has been helping injured patients file cases against the manufacturers of defective medical devices for decades. We want to help you receive the compensation you deserve after this ordeal.
