patients who have undergone large head metal-on-metal hip replacements should be monitored annually for life
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) July 11, 2012
The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than Troy Williams. 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 April 30th, 2012, California resident Troy Williams filed a lawsuit in California Eastern District Court (case no. 2:2012cv01151) alleging he suffered severe complications from his Zimmer Durom Cup. The Zimmer Durom Cup is an artificial hip component widely used in hip replacement surgeries in the US since 2006. In the lawsuit, Williams claims he was implanted the Zimmer Durom Cup in January 2007. Approximately a year later, he started experiencing hip problems including severe pain, immobility and shortening of his leg.
On June 13th, 2012, Willams’ lawsuit was transferred to the multidistrict litigation (MDL 2158) in the District of New Jersey, where the products liability cases involving the Zimmer Durom Cup hip device are centralized. In July 2008 hip replacement components made by Zimmer Holdings, Inc. were recalled 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.

On February 28th 2012, BBC reported that the British Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) advised that patients who have undergone large head metal-on-metal hip replacements should be monitored annually for life.
