Zimmer® Knee Implant Attorneys Jacksonville
FDA Recall, Warning or Action: According to a FDA notice, the manufacturer received 114 medical device reports of patients who had problems with the knee implant device or needed revision surgery to replace the implant because it had become loose.
Both healthcare providers and patients depend upon the pharmaceutical industry to manufacture new medical products that are safe and effective. Harrell & Harrell’s accident attorneys work closely with medical experts to identify dangerous devices, inadequate warning labels, incomplete healthcare directions, and poor designs that result in adverse outcomes. In most cases the fault comes from the manufacturer’s failure to identify contraindicated situations, provide thorough instructions, or to warn of known failures.
Side Effects of Zimmer® Knee Implants Use
Zimmer® total knee replacement surgery requires the resurfacing of the bones that rub together with metal and plastic implants. Using special instruments, a surgeon will typically remove the damaged surfaces of the connecting bones and affix the replacement implants. Possible negative effects and failed patient outcomes include:
- Failed Implant Device
- Premature Loosing of Implants
- Infection and Instability
- Pain & Osteoarthritis
- Revision or Replacement Surgery
NOTE: Some components of the Zimmer® NexGen implants were subsequently recalled in 2010 because they were prone to failure that resulted in complications like those listed above.
