Radiolucent Lines From Zimmer Knee Lawsuits
Studies have been conducted that have identified radiolucent lines as a serious concern associated with knee replacement surgery. Radiolucent lines are small gaps or holes located between the device and bone or between device components. These gaps are usually created due to the device or implant not being installed securely. Complications occur when these gaps fill with joint fluid, tissue, or debris created from the rubbing together of components. If radiolucent lines are unnoticed or left untreated, the risk of device failure becomes much greater. Additionally, the risk of osteolysis becomes a major concern. Osteolysis is the death of bone over time. All of these complications will also impact the device components themselves, and could lead to device failure.
Radiolucent lines was one of the major factors that contributed to the March 2015 FDA recall of Zimmer’s Persona Trabecular Metal Tibial Plate. This knee replacement device had received several complaints of component loosening and device failure. The FDA’s investigation found that radiolucent lines were creating a greater risk for serious complications and opted to pull the product from the market.
