San Diego, CA (PRWEB) October 03, 2012
The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than Morris Reynolds and his wife Suzanne. And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.
According to court documents, on September 4th, 2012, an Arkansas man, Morris Reynolds and his wife Suzanne filed a lawsuit in Arkansas Eastern District Court (case no. 4:2012cv00552) alleging severe complications from his Zimmer Durom Cup in both hips. The Zimmer Durom Cup is an artificial hip component widely used in hip replacement surgeries in the US since 2006. In the lawsuit Reynolds claims he was implanted with Zimmer Durom Cup in his left hip in 2007 and, a few months later, he was implanted with Zimmer Durom Cup in his right hip. In 2010, he allegedly started suffering complications from Durom Cup in both legs, back pain and difficulty in standing and walking, among others.
As the US FDA reported, on July 22nd, 2008, there was a voluntary recall of the Zimmer Durom Acetabular Component ("Durom Cup") because the instructions for use/surgical technique instructions were inadequate.
