Zimmer Durom Hip Cup Cases Lawyers in Austin
Understanding the Dangers
When joints fail, many people turn to artificial joint replacement systems in their efforts to regain mobility. These systems, however, are not always flawless and in some cases can cause their patients to suffer from serious injuries – sometimes requiring that the patients endure further surgeries for revision purposes. One example of this is Zimmer Holdings who released an artificial hip component in 2006 that was to be used in a hip replacement surgery.
This device has been implanted in over ten thousand patients since its release, however, has been found to be less than functional. Complications that were commonly associated with the Durom Hip Cup have mostly been association with the component loosening after the surgery. Not only was this painful, it would also cause the patient to suffer from stiffness in the joint and limping – making it difficult for them to participate in the everyday functions that they were used to.
Defective Product Lawsuits
In 2008, Zimmer suspended sales of this device, however, there has been no formal recall made. They claim that complications of the device are not actually from the device itself, but rather from improperly trained surgeons. However, many still put the blame on the device, claiming it was defective in nature.
