Osteolysis From Zimmer Knee Replacement Lawsuits
Many patients who have received artificial knee replacements have suffered from osteolysis, or bone death. Many times, Zimmer knee implants are installed incorrectly by doctors, which leads to the formation of radiolucent lines. These lines, or gaps inbetween bone and the device, can fill with fluid, tissue or debris created from the implant. When this happens, risk for bone damage increases. If osteolysis occurs in the area, it can further weaken and loosen the implant. Component loosening can lead to complete device failure.
Unfortunately, when an implant device fails, revision surgery is often required. It is important to notify your physician if you begin feeling pain in the area where you received your knee replacement. It could be a sign of osteolysis. In March of 2015, the FDA issued a recall of Zimmer’s Persona Trabecular Metal Tibial Plate, citing osteolysis as one of the main factors contributing to device failure.
