Zimmer Hip Implant Recall

Alfredo Torrijos | May 20, 2016 | Defective Drugs & Medical Devices , Mass Torts , Products Liability

The Zimmer Durom Cup hip implant was a metal on metal device implanted in patients from 2006 through 2008, before it was recalled. The implant used new metal on metal technology, which was claimed to last longer than non-metal on metal implants. The hip implant was recalled after complaints of metal toxicity and failure of the implant. The metal toxicity was a result of the metal parts grinding against each other causing the metal to be released into the body. Side effects of metal toxicity include severe pain, infection and tissue disease and often required surgical removal of the implant.

DePuy Pinnacle Hip Implants

Alfredo Torrijos | May 20, 2016 | Defective Drugs & Medical Devices , Mass Torts , Products Liability

DePuy began marketing its Pinnacle hip implant system in the early 2000s as an alternative to other hip implants. The implant is a metal on metal device claimed to be longer lasting and ideal for younger and more active patients. The metal on metal system has been found to have far more complications and adverse side effects than non-metal on metal devices. The metal on metal system often fails sooner than non-metal on metal systems. It also has caused serious side effects due to the metal components. Specifically, the grinding of metal parts causes the metal to enter into the body and blood system causing metal toxicity, which can cause severe pain, weakness, fatigue, numbness, shortness of breath and other debilitating conditions. Often a replacement of the Pinnacle system is required to help resolve these side effects.
