Cleveland Durom® Cup Recall Lawyers

Zimmer Hip Implant at Possible Risk

First entering the market in 2006, the Durom® Cup has been shrouded with controversy just a few years later. A preeminent surgeon warned colleagues that this artificial hip component may come loose, leaving patients in pain and in need of replacement surgery.

Dr. Lawrence Dorr, an orthopedist in Los Angeles, told the New York Times that the Durom® Cup, a device produced by Zimmer Holdings, "is a bad design."

A number of Dr. Dorr's colleagues have agreed, reporting the component has a higher than expected rate of failure. In response to growing physician discontent and patient complaints, Zimmer decided to halt sales of the Durom® Cup last month—but they did not recall the device.

According to Zimmer President and CEO David Dvorak, "U.S. surgeons...should stop implanting the Durom® Cup until we issue the updated labeling that provides more detailed guidance on surgical technique, and until they receive training."

Potential Side Effects Related to Durom® Cup

When the Durom® Cup fails, it can result in significant health complications for patients with the implant.

Some of these include the following:

  • Extreme pain or discomfort
  • Lack of mobility
  • Loosening of the artificial implant
  • Broken or faulty implant
  • Need for revision surgery

While originally hailed as an innovative hip replacement device, the Durom® Cup was plagued by a much higher rate of failure than similar devices. This wasn’t just bad news for creator Zimmer, but devastating news for the thousands of patients that had this medical device implanted in their bodies.

Have You Had Problems?

If you are one of the more than 12,000 patients receiving the Zimmer Durom® Cup and suspect your implant is defective, you may contact an experienced product liability attorney at the Spangenberg law firm to discuss whether you are entitled to compensation.

Unfortunately, this response comes too late for over 12,000 patients in the United States who were given no warnings of potential complications prior to surgery, and whose doctors were provided inadequate instruction and training on how to install the artificial hip component. Zimmer may have left these patients at risk of suffering severe, painful injuries should their Durom® Cup fail.
