When the DePuy Synthes Radial Head Prosthesis System was first introduced in 2013, it was touted as a superior system that could help restore joint function in all types of patients. However, just three years later, DePuy recalled tens of thousands of its prosthesis systems after patients experienced loosening of the device that led to severe complications.
