Zimmer Durom Cup Recalled

On July 24, 2008, Zimmer Holdings Inc. publicly announced suspension of all marketing and sales of its Durom Acetabular Hip Component, also known as the Durom cup.

Representatives have stated that this action addresses fears of possible failures with the device, which includes cup loosening requiring a subsequent revision surgery. The surgery is to redo the hip replacement.

Over 12,000 Durom cups have been implanted in the United States since 2006. It is anticipated that up to 10% have already failed or will fail within the next two years.

» What Were the Problems Associated With the Durom Cup?

Defective Durom Cup hip replacements reportedly caused a wide range of problems among the patients who received them. Most notably, Dr. Dorr, the physician who first reported potential issues with these devices, found that the implants were separating from the hipbone, rather than fusing with it. This was causing the artificial hip device to pop out of its socket, causing the metal components to rub directly against the bone, causing serious pain. In addition to the pain caused by these devices, other Durom Cup hip implant recipients reported:

  • Swelling
  • Feeling of looseness or instability
  • Limited mobility
  • Metallosis

A number of patients reportedly had to undergo painful revision surgery to correct complications after receiving a Durom Cup hip. In some cases, the additional surgery did not fully restore mobility or function to patients who were injured by these devices.

If you or a loved one has suffered severe pain or other complications caused by a Zimmer Durom Cup implant, you need to contact an experienced personal injury attorney to discuss your case. Nadrich & Cohen, LLP is currently offering free initial case evaluations to patients in all 50 states who may be entitled to compensation for their injuries. Your time for filing a claim is limited so contact us today to put our team of hip injury experts to work on our behalf.

» If the Durom Cup was not officially recalled, am I still eligible to file a claim for compensation?

According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, a recall involves the removal of a particular product from the market which the agency considers to be in violation of it laws. Recalls can be executed voluntarily by the product’s manufacturer or at the mandate of the FDA. For example, Johnson & Johnson’s DePuy Orthopedics issued a voluntary recall of its ASR metal hips in 2010 after research indicated that the devices had a particularly high failure rate. Following the recall, a number of patients filed lawsuits claiming they were injured by one of these devices.

With the Durom Cup, Zimmer opted to voluntarily take the product off the market but the devices were never officially recalled. This does not mean, however, that patients who were injured by one of these devices are not eligible to file a claim for compensation. A number of other metal hips, including the DePuy Pinnacle hip and the Wright Conserve and Profemur systems, are also the subject of multiple lawsuits but none of these devices have yet been recalled.

You or a loved one may be eligible to file an injury claim involving the Durom Cup hip replacement if any of the following complications have occurred:

  • Persistent and severe pain
  • Swelling
  • Tissue damage
  • Loss of mobility
  • Metal poisoning
  • The need for additional surgery
  • Ongoing testing and medical care
  • Expensive medical bills
  • Decrease in quality of life

Patients who have experienced these or other side effects after receiving one of the hip implants should contact a qualified personal injury lawyer right away to discuss their case. The time you have to file a lawsuit is limited so it's important to seek expert legal counsel as quickly as possible.

If you’ve suffered serious side effects caused by one of these devices, join others who are seeking compensation for their injuries and via an individual or class-action lawsuit. The law firm of Nadrich & Cohen, LLP is now investigating hip implant injury claims in all 50 states and we are eager to discuss your case.
