Another hip replacement system manufactured and sold by Zimmer has been recalled. The latest component to be recalled is the company’s M/L Taper with Kinectiv Technology Femoral Stems and Necks. This recall in particular applies to all parts that were manufactured and used between March 31, 2015 and April 20, 2015.
The recall has occurred due to chemical residues that were left on the devices after manufacturing. These chemicals are a significant health concern to patients and can cause allergic reactions, pain, infection, and in rare cases, even death. Any patients who have had recalled components installed in their hip may require revision surgery to replace the defective parts.
FDA Class I recalls are the most serious type of recall. It is only utilized when it is believed the product could cause serious adverse health problems.
Numerous health concerns have been associated with Zimmer hip components before. However, the devices still are used in an astounding amount of hip surgeries each year. Metal-on-metal hip implants can cause metallosis, a condition where foreign metal components can poison surrounding tissue and organs in the body. This is caused by the grinding down of metal hip implants from normal wear and tear. Lawsuits continue to be filed against Zimmer.
