Zimmer's Durom Cup is an orthopedic device used in total hip replacements, which are surgical procedures in which the patient's hip joint is resurfaced and replaced with an artificial implant. It is conventionally used to repair joint/bone damage or to treat arthritis pain in the hip and joint area.
Since Zimmer first began to market and sell the Durom Cup in the United States in 2006 through about July of 2008, the product labeling and product information for the Durom Cup failed to contain adequate information, instructions, and warnings concerning implantation of the product and the risks that the Durom Cup can loosen and separate from the acetabulum in patients.
The Zimmer Durom Cup Implant Device has a number of known consequences including:
- Causes excruciating pain in those who receive the implant
- The product is coated with titanium-plasma, which causes the body to reject it rather than fuse with the bone
- The implant resists bone growth and moves away from the hip socket
- Severe damage to the pelvic bone
- Often calls for painful and potentially risky revision surgery
History of the Durom Cup
Despite Zimmer's knowledge of the defects and serious injuries associated with the use and implantation of the Durom Cup, Defendants engaged in a marketing and advertising program which, by way of affirmative and material misrepresentations and omissions, falsely and deceptively sought to create the image and impression that the use of the Durom Cup was safe and effective.
The FDA website currently indicates that Zimmer was to suspend all marketing and distribution of the Durom cup in the United States pending completion of user training and revision of the instructions for surgical technique, and further, that Zimmer would conduct a removal of all copies of the current surgical technique document and replace it with appropriately revised surgical technique instructions and or documents.
