Zimmer Hip Replacement Lawsuit - Durom Cup Recall
Zimmer Hip Replacement
Sales of the Zimmer Durom Cup hip replacement have been suspended in the United States since many doctors have reported a substantially higher need for revisions and further hip surgery. There have also been numerous patient complaints of crippling pain they experienced following their implantation with this defective device.
Zimmer Hip Replacement Failure
The Zimmer Durom Cup was approved in the United States in 2006 for use during total hip replacement. The Durom Cup was designed for use in young, active patients who were likely to outlive a conventional hip replacement.
The component has been implanted in over 12,000 patients. According to information released by Zimmer, some doctors have encountered post-hip surgery problems requiring further surgery and revision as much as 5.7% of the time
The problems with the hip implants were brought to light by Los Angeles surgeon Dr. Lawrence Dorr. Dr. Dorr wrote a letter that warned other orthopedists about cup failures his patients were experiencing. According to Dr. Dorr and other physicians, x-rays showed that the socket was separating from bone, rather than fusing with it. This caused severe pain and the need for further surgery for the patient.
