The Zimmer Durom Cup is a defective part of the Zimmer Durom Acetabular Hip Implant System. The problem with the Zimmer Durom Cup is that it does not adequately bond to the the patients bone in the way in which it is supposed to. Studies have compared the Zimmer Durom Cups in the United States to those abroad, and have found that the ones sold abroad have a different structure and have had no reports of defective adhesion.
If the cup of the hip implant becomes detatched, the patient will inevitably have to undergo revision surgery, which is expensive, painful, and inconvenient. Zimmer Durom has suggested that patients who have had the hip implant in their body for more than three months and experience any pain or discomfort should consult with a medical professional to see whether or not revision surgery would be necessary.
Sometimes, the cup is in the correct place in the body, but no adhesion occurs. It is difficult to detect because standard detection methods are often inadequate to identify the effects of this defective product.
According to some doctors, the failure rate of the Zimmer Durom Cup occurs within the first few years of the implant being in the body. This is in a sense self-evident because the by that time the bone should have amalgamated with the cup. If this has not happened, then it is clear that the product is defective.
If you or a loved one has had a Zimmer Durom Cup implant, you may be entitled to compensation.
