Zimmer Durom® Cup Lawsuits
On June 9, 2010, the United States Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation issued an order approving centralization of products liability cases involving the Zimmer Durom Cup hip device. The MDL will be centralized in the District of New Jersey and has been assigned to the Honorable Susan D. Wigenton. This consolidated litigation started with 45 actions: thirty-three pending in the District of New Jersey, four in the Western District of Louisiana, two in the Southern District of Ohio, two in the Eastern District of Texas, and one each in the District of Arizona, the Northern District of Illinois, and the Western District of Kentucky.
Zimmer Durom® Cup Sales Suspended
In July 2008, Zimmer, Inc., voluntarily suspended the sale of the Durom Cup Hip Resurfacing System in the United States after physicians expressed concern over a high failure rate with the hip replacement device. The reports indicate that the Durom Cup implant may fail to fuse properly with the bone, instead separating and migrating in the body. When the Durom Cup moves, it pushes the metal hip socket against bone, which can cause excruciating pain for patients. Additionally, problems with the Durom Cup may require patients to undergo hip revision surgeries, medical monitoring or rehabilitation.
Ongoing Concerns with the Zimmer Durom Cup Implants
Since 2006, the Durom Cup has been implanted in nearly 13,000 patients. According to the New York Times, veteran orthopedic surgeon Dr. Lawrence Dorr first told Zimmer about his concerns with the Durom hip replacement cup in early 2008. The manufacturer did not investigate the issue until Dr. Dorr raised his concerns with the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons. Zimmer subsequently suspended sales of the Durom Cup, indicating that up to 5.7% of the implanted Durom Cup devices may need to be replaced in the United States and Europe.
