The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than Maurilou Adams. 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 May 21th, 2012, Los Angeles resident, Maurilou Adams, filed a lawsuit in New Jersey District Court (case no. 2:2012cv03038) alleging that Zimmer’s Durom Cup hip implant caused her injuries leading to revision surgery. The Durom Cup, manufactured by Zimmer Holdings, is an artificial hip component widely used in hip replacement surgeries in the US since 2006. Plaintiff claims that, she underwent surgery in 2008, during which the Zimmer Durom Cup was implanted. After the surgery she began feeling intense pain and discomfort and she underwent a revision surgery in 2011.
Since 2006, the Durom cup has been implanted in approximately 12,000 patients, according to Drugwatch article published on April 3rd, 2012. It was recalled in July 2010, after it was learned that the surgical parts did not work properly, forcing many patients to undergo painful and costly additional surgeries to correct the defect.
