Zimmer Knee Replacement Lawsuits

Zimmer Inc. has initiated a voluntary recall of Persona Trabecular Metal Tibial Plate. The voluntary recall follows complaints of radiolucent lines and loosening of the knee implant.

Radiolucent lines are gaps between the component and the bone. These gaps can then fill with fluid, causing bone damage and leading to implant failure. Hospitals and surgeons were warned of the urgent medical device recall on February 16, 2015. In total, 11,658 Zimmer Persona knee implants were recalled.

FDA Issues Notice

The FDA posted a recall of the Zimmer Persona knee implant on March 12, 2015.

Zimmer designs, develops, and manufactures orthopedic products like knee and hip implants. The Zimmer Persona knee replacement has only been on the market for about three years, while most joint implant devices have an expected life of 15 to 20 years.
