What is the problem with Zimmer Hip M/L Taper System design?

Zimmer Hip M/L Taper System design is defective according to the lawsuits, the Zimmer M/L Taper Hip System, with a CoCr femoral head, causes fretting and corrosion at the head-neck/stem taper junctions.

The corrosion causes metal debris, metal ions and other chemical byproducts which are released into the surrounding hip tissues. These metal debris, metal ions, and byproducts are extremely toxic and inflammatory destroying the surrounding tissue and bone, causing pseudotumors or fleshy growths in the hip joint. The release of metal debris and metal ions also causes metallosis or metal poisoning, as found in elevated blood cobalt and chromium levels.

If you received a Zimmer Hip M/L Taper  hip replacement and had to undergo a hip revision surgery due to one of the following problems, you may have a legal claim:

  • Failure of the metal on metal hip implant requiring early replacement
  • Dislocated Hip
  • Metallosis or metal poisoning with chromium or cobalt
  • Tissue surrounding the implant
  • Non-cancerous tumors or pseudotumors around the hip implant
