Zimmer Durom Cup
The Zimmer Durom Cup has been used in hip implant surgeries in the United States since 2006, primarily in total hip arthroplasties.
Reasons for Early Failure Rates of the Zimmer Durom Cup
The Zimmer Durom Cup hip implant was discovered to fail at faster than normal rates due to the device slipping or the shell no longer sitting in the correct place within the hip acetabulum or the implant resisting the growth of bone. Another major reason for early failure rates is due to the design of metal on metal components. When metal parts rub against other metal parts, metal debris sheds and can seep into the bloodstream causing major complications such as damaged tissue from metal toxicity, also known as metallosis. This serious condition can cause severe health complications such as nerve damage, weakened muscles of the heart, visual, hearing and cognitive impairments, pseudotumors, infections, inflammation, trouble breathing and difficulty walking, among others.
