Patients are harmed and placed in medical and legal purgatory because Congress has directed the FDA to approve implanted medical devices without clinical testing 510(k) with no warranty or post-market independent data or UDI so that consumers can select a safe device. Representative Paulsen has personal financial investments in medical device companies and is a cheerleader for the industry. He is not impartial and he is aware of FDA Adverse Event #5009052.
