Zimmer M/L Taper Hip Prosthesis and Versys Femoral Heads
Zimmer M/L Taper and Zimmer M/L Taper with Kinectiv Technology hip implants are designed to precisely fit patients through several components including a neckpiece, femoral stem, and artificial head. The neckpiece and the femoral stem are placed inside the patient’s femur. The neckpiece is connected to an artificial head. Unfortunately, the connection point between the pieces of the artificial hip can cause complications due to the parts being made of metal. The subsequent device failure can be due to corrosion and metal wear at the neck-stem intersection requiring revision surgery.
The Zimmer lawsuits involving the M/L Taper Hip Prosthesis, the M/L Taper Prosthesis with Kinectiv Technology, and the Versys Hip System Femoral Head were combined into multidistrict litigation (MDL) in October 2018. The MDL is venued in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York under Judge Paul A. Crotty.
