(PRWEB) June 21, 2013
The maker of the Wright Conserve and Profemur Z metal hip implants announced on June 19 that it was selling its hips and knees division. The Rottenstein Law Group LLP, which maintains Wright Conserve and Profemur Z lawsuit pages, notes that federal Conserve hip lawsuits were consolidated in court because of the device’s serious alleged side effects (In re: Wright Medical Technology, Inc., Conserve Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation, MDL-2329, U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia).
MicroPort Scientific Corporation will purchase Wright’s OrthoRecon division for $290 million, Wright announced on its website.*
“The sale of the division does not mean that metal-on-metal hip implant recipients may not file a lawsuit if they believe their Wright hip implants have harmed them,” said Rochelle Rottenstein, principal of the Rottenstein Law Group LLP.
Like other metal-on-metal hip implants, the Wright Conserve and Profemur Z have been the subject of research studies that found an alleged risk of metal poisoning (metallosis) and a high rate of revision surgery requirements.**
The Rottenstein Law Group LLP represents clients in Wright hip implant lawsuits. The firm encourages those who believe they have suffered from the Wright Conserve’s and Wright Profemur Z’s alleged side effects to visit the firm’s website to download a free brochure to learn more about possible compensation from lawsuits.
