Defective Medical Devices Causing Increased Revision Surgeries
More and more hip replacement patients are coming forward with new cases of failed hip replacement surgeries involving the Zimmer Durom cup.
Another consumer has had to undergo revision surgery due to the failure of the Zimmer Durom Cup implant.
According to a recent patient the device failed to incur a permanent fixation to the bone through in-growth as the manufacturer advertised.
When this occurs the defective medical device never adheres properly to the bone and becomes incredibly painful due to the movement of the device against the bone. If you have a Zimmer Durom cup implant, contact an experienced hip replacement lawyer at The Law Offices of Nadrich & Cohen today at 1.800.718.4658 for a free consultation.
In July 2008, Zimmer Inc. announced a suspension of sales of the Durom cup. The company said it would be training doctors in best practices for implanting the device.
Design deficits of some prosthesis models, especially when they contain heat treated alloys and a lack of specialized surgical experience accounts for most of the failures.
Metal-On-Metal Implants Have Many Defects
Surgeons at leading medical centers such as the Mayo Clinic have reported reducing by 80 percent their use of metal-on-metal implants over the last year in favor of those made from other materials, like combinations of metal and plastic.
The cause of these failures remains controversial, and may include both design factors, technique factors, and factors related to patient immune responses (allergic type reactions).
Zimmer Inc. admitted that a low percentage of their 13,000 patients with implants of the Durom Cup would need replacement surgery.
Some doctors, familiar with the device, believed at the time, the revision surgeries would total many more than Zimmer expected.
Unfortunately, over 12,000 patients in the U.S. already received the artificial hip component from doctors who were not provided proper instructions or training.
