Zimmer's MIS tibial plate and keel components were used in NexGen Flex knee replacement procedures, which included the LPS-Flex and CR-Flex. In September of 2010, the FDA issued a Class II recall for these components.
The components in question were used primarily in minimally invasive procedures. These are surgeries that are conducted with smaller incisions than normal surgeries. Zimmer has claimed that reduced visibility due to the smaller incisions was causing surgeons to misalign the implant.
Since the recall, Zimmer has altered the surgical technique used to install these components. The FDA recall status was terminated in March 2011. However, if you or a loved one had MIS tibial components installed prior to this date, you may be entitled to file a lawsuit against Zimmer.
