What is the ExploR Modular Radial Head System?
The ExploR Modular Radial Head System device uses a modular design. This design allows the head to be replaced without removing the implanted stem and reproduces the natural articulation of radio-capitellar and radio-ulnar joints. During partial elbow replacement surgeries using the Explor Modular Radial Head System device, surgeons implant the stem into the bone on one side of the joint and load the head from the side, secured with a set screw to the stem.
The Statement of Claim (SOC) alleges the device was improperly designed, manufactured and tested, resulting in the screw backing out into the elbow and ultimately device failure. The design of the screw came with no warnings about tightness and/or torque limiters for operating surgeons to follow.
