Zimmer NexGen Knee Replacement Recall

Zimmer NexGen has recently issued a number of recalls related to Zimmer NexGen knee replacement knee components.  The design of the replacement knee is flawed and has resulted in an increased risk of loosening or early failure.  These problems then result in the need for knee revision surgery.

Various problems have resulted from Zimmer Nexgen Knee replacements.  Well over 200,000 Zimmer NexGen knee replacement components have been used in the United States in recent years.  Thus, numerous Americans may be experiencing problems or even requiring knee revision surgery due to early failure.  Numerous surgeons of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons revealed that Zimmer NexGen components have a higher-than-expected failure rate.  In a 2010 study, the surgeons revealed that use of Zimmer NexGen replacements resulted in a substantial number of individuals being forced to undergo revision surgery within around two years and numerous other individuals showed that the replacement knee was loosening.  The product recalls were issued due to their design and manufacturing problems and also high numbers of reports of problems associated with the devices.  Similarly, the Zimmer NexGen LPS knee parts were recalled for their inconsistent geometry and non-conforming designs, resulting in debilitating knee injuries.

The problems and complications that could potentially stem from the Zimmer NexGen knee replacements include:

  • Knee or joint pain
  • Inability to balance, stand or walk
  • Loosening of the replacement knee parts
  • Knee replacement failure
  • Revision surgery

Financial compensation may be achieved through a lawsuit for individuals who have received certain Zimmer Next Gen components, including:

  • Zimmer NexGen CR-Flex and CR-Flex Porous
  • Zimmer NexGen MIS
  • Zimmer NexGen LPS
  • Or, other Zimmer Knee Replacements
