Upcoming Lawsuits for Zimmer Durom Cup


Upcoming Lawsuits for Zimmer Durom Cup
The medical use of prosthetics has seen much improvement over the past few decades. This improvement, along with advancements in technology, gives much promise for the use of prosthetics in the future.

While many areas in the use of prosthetics have seen improvement, some areas have seen devastating failures. The Zimmer Durom Cup, a prosthetic used in hip replacement surgeries, is an example of one such failure.

Zimmer Durom Cup Recall

After being approved for use in the U.S., the Zimmer Durom Cup became associated with revision surgery being needed following the original hip replacement surgery. Maxwell Schmickman, a writer for EternLive.com, writes about what some doctors have noticed during these revision surgeries.

These doctors found that the cups loosen over time and eventually result in them just popping out of the sockets at the slightest touch. This has led many physicians to predict that a number of Zimmer Durom Cup’s currently in use will fail fairly soon.

The outrageous number of seemingly defective devices has led to a recall of the product in July of 2008.

Legal Options

Zimmer, the maker of the Zimmer Durom Cup, contends that the device itself is not at fault but rather it is the physicians who improperly installed the devices that are at fault.

With the number of cases of the device failing and the variety of physicians and conditions at which the devices were implanted, the evidence seems very scarce to conclude that it is the physicians’ fault.

Many states have laws that are in place to help protect patients who suffer because of defective or faulty prosthetic devices. National attorneys such as Nadrich & Cohen are currently working on cases involving the Zimmer Durom Cup.
