d'Oliveira & Associates Releases Zimmer Knee Infographic Providing Important Safety Information on High-Flex Knees
Date:3/19/2013

(PRWEB) March 19, 2013

In 1994, the FDA approved the first Zimmer NexGen Knee replacement system which was touted as advancement in knee implants according to the Zimmer company website. The design of Zimmer NexGen Flex Knee differs from traditional knee replacement systems due to it being manufactured using Trabecular Metal, a “porous metal,” and surgical cement as opposed to traditional materials (i). Marketed by Zimmer to have a 155 degree range of motion, the NexGen Flex Knee was intended to provide more flexibility over traditional knee implants (ii).

The law offices of d’Oliveira & Associates have posted a new infographic that provides current information regarding the Zimmer NexGen Flex Knee Replacement system and many safety concerns surrounding the device. Concerns addressed within the infographic include common side effects associated with the device, which may involve stiff joints, swelling or more serious effects like nerve damage (iii). Longevity of the devise and its possible failure rate is another issue examined by the infographic. Implanted knee devices are meant to last an average 10 to 20 years without incident and according to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons many traditional systems last even longer than 20 years (iv). Based on court documents the Zimmer NexGen Flex Knee systems may have a higher chance of failure within in a shorter period of time then traditional knee implant devices (U.S. District Court of Northern Illinois under the multidistrict litigation (MDL) case number 2272).

In 2005, Zimmer consultant, Dr. Richard A. Berger, implanted 125 patients with the Zimmer NexGen Flex Knee device and according to the New York Times article, after follow-up X-rays showed the device had not fused properly and was loose Dr. Berger filed safety complaints with the Zimmer Company (v). By 2007 Dr. Berger had promptly stopped implanting patients with the Zimmer NexGen Flex Knee
