The U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a recall on June 19, 2015 for Zimmer M/L Taper Femoral stems and necks. The products are alloy implants used for hip replacements that allow the surgeon to fit the implant specifically to the patient. During hip replacement surgery, the damaged portions of the hip joint are removed and replaced with an integrated system of products, which includes the femoral stem and neck . The recall is due to manufacturing residues left on the implants because of a process monitoring failure. This residue on the alloy hip implant could cause adverse health effects including pain, allergic reactions, infections and even death.
The FDA has issued its second Zimmer® recall in a matter of just three months, the Zimmer Persona® Trabecular Metal™ Tibial Plate, a knee implant component, was recalled in March, 2015. Cory Watson Attorneys is investigating claims and injuries related to the hip and knee implants.
