Bonita Springs, FL (PRWEB) December 13, 2011
Gilman Law LLP, a national law firm dedicated to protecting the rights of those injured by defective drugs and medical devices, is investigating claims involving failed hip replacement implants and knee replacement implants including those manufactured by DePuy Orthopedics, Smith & Nephew, Zimmer Inc., and Wright Medical Technology Inc. Devices currently under investigation include:
DePuy ASR Hip Implants
DePuy Pinnacle Implants
DePuy Knee Implants
Smith & NephewÃ¢s Oxinium Knee Replacement Implant
Wright Medical Profemur Hip Replacement Implant
Zimmer NexGen LPS-FLEX Knee Implant
Zimmer NexGen MIS Tibial Component
Zimmer NexGen CR-Flex Porous Femoral Component Knee Replacement
Gilman Law has received reports that these implants are allegedly prone to early failures, causing recipients to suffer pain and disability, and often the need for additional revision surgeries to replace a failing device. DePuy ASR Hip Implants, Zimmer NexGen MIS Tibial Components, and the cementless version of Smith & NephewÃ¢s Oxinium Knee Replacement Implant were actually recalled due to issues with the devices.
A hip or knee implant should last for 15 years, but defective devices can fail just a few years after surgery. Symptoms of a failing knee implant include swelling and pain, loosening and instability of the implant, and heat or warmth in the knee. Signs of a failed hip implant include persistent and chronic pain, inflammation, difficulty walking, and Ã¢Å“warning soundsÃ¢ such as cracking and grinding near the joint that becomes louder and more prominent over time.
