Zimmer M-L Taper with Kinectiv Technology Recall

Zimmer M/L Taper with Kinectiv Technology Prosthesis Femoral Stems and Necks Hip Device Are Recalled by Zimmer; FDA Deems Recall a Class I

Zimmer M-L Taper with Kinectiv Technology Recall

Lawyers at our firm who specialize in Zimmer class action lawsuits are offering free legal consultations.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced on June 8, 2015 that the Zimmer M/L Taper with Kinectiv Technology Prosthesis Femoral Stems and Necks hip devices are experiencing greater than expected levels of manufacturing residues. The information is based on a May 18, 2015 Zimmer-issued recall notification letter and instructions that were sent to distributors and hospital staff.

The agency deemed this a Class I recall. A Class I recall is the most serious type of FDA designation and involves situations in which there exists a reasonable probability that use of the recalled products, in this case, the Zimmer M/L Taper with Kinectiv Technology Prosthesis Femoral Stems and Necks, will cause serious adverse health consequences or death.

Parker Waichman is accepting Zimmer hip device lawsuit complaints. Lawyers at our firm who specialize in Zimmer class action lawsuits are offering free legal consultations to individuals who have been implanted with a Zimmer M/L Taper with Kinectiv Technology Prosthesis Femoral Stems and Necks hip device and who are concerned about potential injuries associated with the device.

Zimmer M/L Taper with Kinectiv Technology Prosthesis Femoral Stems and Necks Hip Device Associated with Serious, Potential Adverse Reactions

Zimmer, Inc.'s M/L Taper with Kinectiv Technology Femoral Stems and Necks are described as Tivanium® alloy implants that are used in hip replacements.

The Zimmer device enables the physician to fit the M/L Taper implant specifically to the patient. During hip replacement surgery, the damaged portions of the patient's hip joint are removed and replaced with a collaborative system of Zimmer products that includes the femoral stem and neck. The devices involved were manufactured and distributed from March 31, 2015 through April 20, 2015.

Zimmer discovered a process monitoring failure that led to greater than expected amounts of manufacturing residues being left on these devices. The residues involved may lead to significant, serious adverse health issues, including allergic reactions, pain, infections, or death. In fact, use of the recalled Zimmer M/L Taper with Kinectiv Technology Prosthesis Femoral Stems and Necks hip devices may lead to a need for revision surgery in which the impacted implant would require removal and replacement.

Revision surgery is a serious surgical procedure that is typically riskier and requires more physical therapy due to the patient's limited remaining bone and tissue given the bone and tissue removed for the original surgery. Revision surgery may also be costlier and may not bring patients to their prior physical state.

Zimmer's May 2015 recall notification letters and instructions for distributors and hospital staff called for a quarantine and certified return of all recalled devices.
