Alabama Wright Profemur Artificial Hip Lawyers
The hip replacement lawyers at The DiLorenzo Law Firm, LLC are pursuing product liability lawsuits for individuals who are experiencing or have experienced problems after receiving a Wright Profemur artificial hip. The problems you've experienced may be caused by design defects with the artificial implant. The DiLorenzo Law Firm, LLC now represents clients nationwide who are dealing with defective artificial hip implants.
Compensation may be available to you through a Wright Profemur hip lawsuit due to the manufacturer’s failure to adequately test the design and durability of the hip replacement system or warn you about the risk that the implant may loosen or fail within a few years of surgery. Obviously, a second "revision" surgery is generally not needed or anticipated within years of your original surgery and any complications should raise a red flag for you.
The Problem With Wright Profemur Artificial Hips
The Wright Medical Profemur Total Hip System was approved in the United States as a "substantial equivalent" to an existing medical device, which allowed Wright Medical Group to introduce the hip replacement device to the market without conducting rigorous pre-market approval testing. In essence, Wright Medical began selling an untested design without proper design studies. Now that the Wright Profemur hip has been implanted in patients throughout the United States, it appears that design defects may make it prone to early failure.
The Wright Profemur femoral neck is designed to be modular so that it can be adjusted for leg length. It was also manufactured to be subject to bend, which may lead to rapid deterioration and an increased risk of a hip replacement failure.
A number of consumers who received a hip replacement with the Wright Profemur system have reported that the femoral neck broke or fractured during normal use. This can result in severe pain, the need for revision surgery for the Wright Profemur hip and result in permanent and debilitating injury for the hip patient. If you've experienced any of these problems, contact us for a free case evaluation.
Potential signs of Wright Profemur Plus hip problems:
- Fracture of the Wright Profemur hip femoral neck
- Loosening of the Hip Implant
- Unexplained Hip Pain
- Difficulty Standing or Walking
- Additional Hip Revision Surgery
- Hip Replacement Failure
A typical artificial hip implant is expected to last more than 15 years; however, many individuals with Wright Profemur implants have required revision surgery within just a few years to replace or correct problems.
Wright Profemur lawsuits are now being filed. The claims now being filed by plaintiffs include the problems with the design of the Wright Profemur that were known to the device manufacturer, yet they continued to market the implant as safe and effective. Rather than issuing a Wright Profemur hip replacement recall, the artificial hip system was aggressively marketed as an implant superior to other hip systems. This is clearly not the case.
