Signs of Zimmer Durom Cup Problems
The Zimmer Durom Acetabular Component was introduced in 2006 by Zimmer. Within two years, potential problems with the device began to emerge.
Attorneys are attempting to help identify the scope of the problem to decide whether victims will benefit by seeking compensation for injuries related to their Zimmer Durom Cup hip replacement. If you have suffered any of the following, you should contact Zimmer Durom Cup hip recall attorneys for more information:
- Hip pain after 3 months’ time from hip replacement surgery
- Hip implant loosening
- Revision surgery of the hip replacement
Patients who pursue compensation may be able to receive payment for pain and suffering, lost wages, medical bills, and diminished quality of life.
Ongoing Zimmer Durom Cup Issues
In 2008, Zimmer Holdings, Inc. announced that it was suspending sales of the Zimmer Durom Cup until it could determine the best way to overcome problems associated with the hip replacement. The plan was to reintroduce the Zimmer Durom Cup once adequate instructions and training protocols could be developed for surgeons to successfully implant the Zimmer Durom Cup.
From its introduction to its suspension of sale, it is suspected that about 12,000 patients in the United States received the Zimmer Durom Cup. It’s unknown how many of these patients suffered problems with their implants because the manufacturer issued defective instructions to surgeons. If you suffered problems, Zimmer Durom Cup Hip Recall Attorneys may be able to help you get compensation.
