Zimmer Cup Recall
Fri Feb 25, 2011 10:05pm

The Zimmer Durom Cup was voluntarily recalled by Zimmer on July 24, 2008 due to a high revision rate in the first 2 years after implantation. In their own study, they found an 8% failure rate in the first 2 years after implantation. Most of these failures have been due to a failure of bony ingrowth. Not all of these cups will fail, but no one knows if cups that have performed well through 2 years will be OK or if this is just the tip of the iceberg.
