Zimmer Hip Replacement Recall

Issue: Defective metal Durom Cup hip implant
Result: Confidential settlements
Year: 2012

Zimmer Durom Cup Metal Hip

First sold in the U.S. in 2006, Zimmer marketed its ‘metal-on-metal’ Durom Cup implant as providing a greater range of motion and less wear than traditional hip replacement components. More than 12,000 patients received the Durom Cup. However, in July 2008, Zimmer suspended sales of the Durom hip implant.

Zimmer Hip Lawsuits and Settlements

In lawsuits filed against Zimmer, patients charged that the Durom Cup was defective as friction from the metal-on-metal components caused microscopic metal shavings to be released into the surrounding blood and tissue. Many patients developed “metallosis,” an inflammatory reaction to the elevated metals in the tissue and blood. As a result, the hip implant failed prematurely and patients were compelled to undergo painful revision surgery to replace the Zimmer hip.

In 2011 and 2012, numerous patients represented by Lieff Cabraser settled their cases with Zimmer on favorable, confidential terms. As of 2015, we continue to represent clients injured by Zimmer Durom hip implants.
