Posted on 08/11/2015Back

A nurse holding the hand of an elderly patientIf you have had knee replacement surgery, you had to place your trust in both the surgeons working on your operation and the products being placed in your knee. If your knee replacement included a Zimmer Persona® Trabecular Metal™ Tibial Plate implant, then you may already be having horrible problems with your knee.

The Zimmer Persona® is an artificial knee system that includes multiple components, each of which must work in concordance with the others to function properly. It was recently announced that the Trabecular Metal™ Tibial Plate portion of the system doesn’t function properly and has been recalled by Zimmer. The tibial plate portion doesn’t always bind properly to the bone, creating gaps that can fill with fluid or tissue or can cause a complete failure of the implant system.

Now that this error has been discovered, thousands of the Trabecular Metal™ Tibial Plates are under recall. The recall may mean another surgery or multiple surgeries in order to properly remove and replace the defective implant.
