Wright Hip Replacement Implant Recall Lawsuit
Wright Hip Implant Lawsuit
Numerous complaints have been registered against Wright Medical Technology for marketing defective Profemur® Z hip implant device, which is reported to have a high failure rate of 11.2 percent. It has been reported that the hip implants fail merely three years after implantation – of every nine patients, one experiences problems with the defective Profemur device.
Patients complain that the main defect with Profemur® Z hip implant system lies with its flexible modular design, which means the neck can easily bend, degrade, break, fret, and ultimately fracture and fail. This creates problems for the patients, who experience stiffness in the groin and find difficulty in performing routine activities; difficulty walking or standing; and experience excruciating pain in the groin, thigh, hip, lower back. Most of the patients are required to undergo a revision surgery, which is even more painful and debilitating compared to the first hip replacement procedure. Surgeons, too, find it difficult to perform secondary procedure, which requires removal of the earlier implanted hip device and replacement with a new one. A number of patients complain that the Femoral Stem or Neck broke while they were performing normal activities, causing them debilitating injuries.
