LegalView Reports Details of Failing Artificial Hip Component Known as the Zimmer Durom Cup
July 31, 2008 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsDenver, CO - LegalView.com recently informed readers of a potentially faulty hip socket known as the Zimmer Durom cup. Zimmer Holdings announced it would "suspend sales of the artificial hip component" because of continued complaints by physicians that the socket was failing, according to reports in The New York Times. Individuals who may have been affected by the potential Durom cup failure should consider speaking with an experienced law firm about the development of a potential Durom cup lawsuit in which monetary compensation could be an outcome.
According to reports in The New York Times, the Durom cup has been available for only a couple of years, since 2006. However, since that time, more than 12,000 individuals have received the artificial hip component and had it implanted into their bodies. Patients that have undergone a hip replacement surgery and may be affected by the potential Durom cup recall should speak with their physician immediately.
