St. Louis Lawyer for Zimmer Durom Hip Cup
Have you suffered from a Zimmer Durom Hip Cup?
In 2006, Zimmer Holdings released their artificial hip component known as the Durom Hip Cup meant to be used as part of a hip replacement surgery. Since its initial release, 12,000 people have received the device in hip replacement surgery. Medically speaking, the device was to be placed next to the patient's hip socket during surgery with the intentions to bond with no screws or other devices. This intention, however, was not always fulfilled.
In actuality, many devices failed to bond and did not implant; the device was found to have an abnormally high failure rate after surgery as many patients suffered from it loosening. This resulted in pain, stiffness, limping as well as difficulty in everyday functions such as walking or navigating stairs. For this reason, many patients have been forced to undergo a secondary revision surgery in an attempt to correct the issue.
Although no recall has been made, Zimmer suspended the sales of the Durom Hip Cup in 2008. While they argue that the problems do not lie within the device itself, but rather the surgeon's procedure, many claim that the device is dangerous and are seeking compensation for the cost of medical treatment and pain that stemmed from the initial surgery.
