Zimmer Persona Trabecular Metal Tibial Plate Recall

While medical devices have the potential to save lives and greatly improve quality of life, defective or poorly designed products can have the opposite effect. Serious injury or death can result when a medical device is rushed to market at the expense of manufacturing quality and safe designs. Our products liability attorneys are all too familiar with situations that arise from defective medical devices.

Zimmer Recall

On March 12, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a notice for a Class II recall for the Zimmer Persona® Trabecular Metal™ Tibial Plate knee implant. According to the FDA’s website, the recall affecting 11,658 devices includes all lots and sizes. These implants can cause serious complications due to loosening of the tibial component, leading to pain and serious mobility problems that may require additional surgery to correct.

This is just the latest in a series of recalls for the company. Zimmer issued a voluntary recall of its hip device, the Durom® Cup, in 2008, and another recall for the NexGen® MIS™ Tibial Components in 2010. Both earlier recalls resulted in lawsuits, which are currently pending in New Jersey and Illinois.
