Zimmer has initiated a voluntary recall of its M/L Taper with Kinectiv Technology Femoral Stems and Necks used in hip replacements.
The recall, which Zimmer is calling a "process monitoring failure," is due to higher than expected amounts of manufacturing residues left on the devices. The FDA is categorizing this as Class 1, the most serious type of recall. These residues can cause serious adverse health issues including allergic reactions, pain, infection, or death. Use of these products may require the need for a revision surgery to replace the affected implant.
