In March 2015, the United States Food and Drug Administration issued a Class II recall of Zimmer's Persona Trabecular Metal Tibial Plate citing an increase in complaints in component loosening and radiolucent lines. All lots and sizes of this component have been recalled. Since the recall was announced, over 1,000 lawsuits have been filed against Zimmer for failing to produce a safe and reliable product. Many more are expected to be filed in the coming months. If you or a loved one have suffered complications from Zimmer Persona knee system, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit. Settlements are expected to be substantial.
Component Loosening & Radiolucent Lines
The recent recall of Zimmer's Persona knee components have identified radiolucent lines as a major cause for concern. Radiolucent lines are small gaps or holes located between component and bone or between two components. These are usually created due to improper installation of the implant, however, they can also be the result of a faulty device. Complications arise when radiolucent lines become filled with joint fluid, tissue or debris from components rubbing together. This leads to the device components loosening, and ultimately causing device failure. When devices fail, revision surgery is almost always required.
