Zimmer NexGen MIS Tibial Component May Lead To Revision Surgery Lawsuits

Zimmer NexGen MIS Tibial Component | Lawsuits, Lawyers | Side Effects: Knee Replacement Failure, Knee and Joint Pain | Faulty Device, Defective Components

Did you suffer complications following total knee replacement with the Zimmer NexGen Complete Knee Solution MIS system? If so, faulty tibial components could be to blame. In September 2010, Zimmer quietly recalled several components after a high number of knee replacement failures were reported. The Zimmer components involved in the recall included NexGen TM Tibial Trays, NexGen MIS Tibial Components and MIS Modular Tibial Plates and Keels. Though the Zimmer NexGen MIS tibial component recall was issued in September 2010, there was no public notification until March 2011.

If you've noticed loosening or discomfort since a knee replacement surgery involving Zimmer NexGen MIS tibial components, have had difficulty walking, standing, or completing any activity that requires the support of the knee, or you underwent revision surgery for a failed knee replacement, you may be eligible to file a Zimmer NexGen MIS tibial component lawsuit. Our Zimmer NexGen MIS tibial component lawyers are currently offering free legal evaluations to anyone injured by these recalled devices. To find out how we can help you, please contact our Zimmer NexGen MIS tibial component lawyers today.

Zimmer NexGen MIS Tibial Component Recall

Zimmer Nexgen MIS Tibial Component

The Zimmer NexGen MIS tibial component recall affected 68,384 knee components, which were distributed in 13 states across the U.S. It is unclear just how many of those components were implanted in patients at the time of the recall.

Complications associated with the recalled Zimmer NexGen MIS tibial components include:

  • Knee Replacement Failure
  • Revision or Replacement of Artificial Knee Device
  • Knee and Joint Pain
  • Difficulty Standing or Walking
  • Decreased Range of Motion
  • Soreness or Stiffness

In April 2010, Zimmer warned its customers via an “Urgent Device Correction” letter about complications involving the NexGen MIS Tibial knee components, and instructed medical professionals to use a modified surgical technique when implanting the affected device. The company issued the modified surgical instructions in response to dozens of reports of component loosening and device failure.

On September 13, 2010, Zimmer issued a recall for the NexGen TM Tibial Trays, NexGen MIS Tibial Components and MIS Modular Tibial Plates and Keels, according to information in a Food & Drug Administration (FDA) medical device recall database. However, no public alert was issued by the FDA or Zimmer. Information about the Zimmer NexGen MIS tibial component recall was not added to the FDA website until March 28, 2011.

According to the FDA database, there have been 114 reports of complications associated with the recalled Zimmer NexGen MIS tibial components. Problems included reports that the Zimmer NexGen knees had loosened and that patients had to undergo additional knee surgery to have the devices replaced. All 114 cases required revision surgery.

Nickel Allergy May Cause Knee Implant Complications

May 17, 2012 | Parker Waichman LLP
Knee replacement patients may suffer serious side effects from their knee implants if they have an allergy to nickel in the device.   Fortunately, not all knee implant devices contain nickel, so these complications can be easily be avoided if the presence of an allergy is determined prior to surgery. Some knee implant recipients may know before their procedure that they have a nickel allergy, especially if they have had a skin reaction to nickel-containing jewelry.  In other...
