Product Liability Attorneys of Friedman, Rodman & Frank, P.A. Stand Up for Victims of Defective Zimmer Knee Replacement Systems
August 18, 2011 /24-7PressRelease/ -- As early as 2006 and as recently as 2010, the safety of Zimmer's NexGen knee replacement system has been questioned. The piece at issue is the NexGen CR-Flex Porous Femoral Component, which is a cementless option that was built to allow the natural fusing of human bone to replacement parts.
But, a study conducted at the Rush University revealed that this cementless system is not perfect, in fact it has an almost 9 percent failure rate. Those who experience a failed Zimmer knee replacement have experienced additional pain, loosening of the joint and have had to undergo a second revision surgery to fix the defective knee implant.
As of May, 2010, Zimmer reported selling over 150,000 of its porous femoral components. Declining a voluntary recall of its NexGen Flex knee replacement systems, Zimmer is holding steadfast in the belief that its product is safe and effective for consumers, despite the number of patients and surgeons who've reported problems with the knee replacement system.
Company promises mean little to those who are suffering because of a defective knee replacement. Existing complaints related to the Zimmer Knee include:
- Loosening of the joint
- Failure of the initial knee replacement surgery
- Continued knee pain
- Revision surgery to correct problems with the knee replacement
