Metal-on-metal implants for knees and hips have been implicated for serious problems. Our attorneys are investigating potential lawsuits on behalf of clients who received the Zimmer Durom Cup implant based on that product's defective design.
Introduced into the United States in 2006, the Zimmer Durom Cup was designed to be a more durable, flexible, and longer lasting hip replacement. However, in the spring of 2008, doctors and surgeons complained that a significant percentage of those implanted experience pain and discomfort caused by looseness and the failure of the device to properly join with the bone. As a consequence, revision and replacement surgeries are often necessary. In July 2008, Zimmer briefly halted sales of the Durom Cup hip replacement device in order to investigate claims of defectiveness. However, shortly thereafter, Zimmer concluded that the problem was with the surgical procedure being used by doctors, not the hip itself, and began to sell the hip once again.
Symptoms of a defective Zimmer Durom Cup hip implant device may include:
- Hip, leg, groin or lower back pain
- Swelling, inflammation or infection
- Problems walking, standing or sitting
- Fatigue or decline in physical ability
- Audible clicking or crunching sound from the hip area
- Elevated levels of metals in blood
