Zimmer Taper System Hip Injuries

Issue: Corrosion and wear in Zimmer Taper Hip Implants

Zimmer ML Taper & Zimmer ML Taper With Kinectiv® Technology

Zimmer hip implant patients across the U.S. are reporting injuries relating to the corrosion and trunnionosis (excessive wear) of their ML Taper and ML Taper with Kinectiv® hip implants. Close to 30 separate cases have been filed in federal court, and the cases were recently centralized for coordinated treatment in New York. Reported injuries include metallosis, pseudotumors, and which can mandate painful and expensive revision surgery. The problems are allegedly due to mechanically-assisted crevice corrosion, head/neck corrosion, and/or trunnionosis at the femoral stem and femoral head junction.

Zimmer Hip Lawsuits and Settlements

In previous lawsuits filed against Zimmer, patients charged that the company’s 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 implants failed prematurely and patients were compelled to undergo painful revision surgery.

In 2011 and 2012, numerous patients represented by Lieff Cabraser settled their cases with Zimmer on favorable, confidential terms. As of 2021, we continue to represent clients injured by Zimmer hip implants.
