New York Defective Biomet Shoulder Implant Lawyers

In February 2017, The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) issued an urgent recall for the Zimmer Biomet Comprehensive Reverse Shoulder because the implants fractured at a higher rate than specified in the labeling, leading to unexpected revision surgeries. The FDA has designated this recall as Class I, meaning that needed revision surgeries, “can have serious adverse health consequences such as permanent loss of shoulder function, infection, or rarely, death.”

The Zimmer Biomet Comprehensive Shoulder was introduced to the United States in 2008. It is a surgically implanted shoulder replacement device intended to be used in primary, fracture or revision shoulder replacement. We believe that patients with these devices will be contacted by Biomet of their surgeon. If you believe you have a Zimmer Biomet Comprehensive Shoulder, you can contact your surgeon to identify the implant. The implant benefits patients with rotator cuff tears that have progressed to severe shoulder arthritis and those with previously failed shoulder joint replacements.

Zimmer Biomet Urgent Recall Notice

Prior to the FDA recall, on December 20, 2016, Zimmer Biomet sent an Urgent Medical Device Recall Notice and a Certificate of Acknowledgement form to all affected customers to “identify and quarantine any affected devices in stock.” The recall applies to 3,662 devices that were distributed between October 2008 and September 2015.

Previous Reverse Shoulder Recalls for this Troubled Line of Shoulder Implants

Prior to the December 2016 recall, there were previous recalls associated with some of Biomet’s Comprehensive Reverse Shoulder products. In 2010, Biomet’s Comprehensive Reverse Shoulder Humeral Tray with Locking Ring was recalled after receiving complaints of fracturing. Accordingly, Biomet instructed their distributors and customers to immediately locate and discontinue use of the affected products. Further, in a separate Urgent Medical Device Recall Notice to implanting surgeons, Biomet informed surgeons to monitor their patients for fractures of the devices. The recall was terminated in July 2011.
