the neck of the right artificial hip broke and plaintiff had to undergo corrective surgery for its removal and replacement
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) November 12, 2012
The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than Glenn A. Wollam and his wife. 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 20th, 2012, parts of the Wright Lawsuit filed by Glenn A. Wollam and his wife, in Colorado District Court (case no. 1:2010cv03104), alleging defective Wright Profemur Hip implants, were dismissed by US District Judge David Ebel. In the lawsuit Wollam claims he had a double hip implant in 2005 with Wright Profemur Total Hip Systems manufactured by Wright Medical. In 2008, the neck of the right artificial hip broke and plaintiff had to undergo corrective surgery for its removal and replacement. Judge ruled that plaintiffs have enough evidence to proceed on design defect charges against the company, but dismissed other portions of the claims.
On June 21st, 2012 Bloomberg published that FDA reported approximately 16,800 adverse events related to metal-on-metal hip implants (including Wright Profemur Hip Replacement) in the US from 2000-2011.

In 2004, Wright Medical issued a recall on its metal acetabular hip cups used in the Conserve hip systems because of a manufacturer defect that resulted in a seam or ridge in the inner acetabular cup surface leading to the component’s failure.
