The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than Priscilla Fielty. 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 17th, 2012, Priscilla Fielty filed a Zimmer NexGen Knee Lawsuit in Indiana Northern District Court (case no. 3:2012cv00507) alleging she suffered serious injuries and pain from her Zimmer NexGen Knee implant. The NexGen Knee is manufactured by Zimmer Holdings a medical device manufacturer specializing in orthopedic implants. In the lawsuit plaintiff claims she was implanted with the Zimmer NexGen GSF LPX-Flex device as well as the Zimmer NexGen MIS Tibia knee device in 2007. As a result she claims she suffered serious injuries and she has to schedule revision surgery.
A Zimmer NexGen knee failure multidistrict litigation (MDL No. 2272) is currently ongoing in the U.S. District Court, Northern District of Illinois. It consolidates lawsuits involving several Zimmer NexGen knee models: the CR-Flex, the GSF CR-Flex, the GSF LPS-Flex, the LPS-Flex and the MIS Tibial.

In March 2011, Zimmer Inc. sent an “URGENT MEDICAL DEVICE RECALL" letter to its consignees/customers. In April 2011, the US FDA reported that a recall was initiated due to the potential for breakdown of the AlTiN PVD (black) coating during surgery and the coating could fall into the surgical site. The firm has received 22 reports of the black coating coming off the instruments after cleaning and sterilization cycles and 5 resulted in a delay of surgery.
