statute of repose
Repose statutes differ from statutes of limitation. A statute of limitations provides protection to the valve manufacturer if an injured patient fails to file a claim of damages some number of months after being injured by the operation to implant it. The statute of repose provides the valve maker with an independent protection that states, in essence, that once a sufficient time has passed, the manufacturer has no ongoing relationship with its old products.
