The sale of the [Wright hips division] does not mean that metal-on-metal hip implant recipients may not file a lawsuit if they believe their Wright hip implants have harmed them.
(PRWEB) June 21, 2013
The maker of the Wright Conserve and Profemur Z metal hip implants announced on June 19 that it was selling its hips and knees division. The Rottenstein Law Group LLP, which maintains Wright Conserve and Profemur Z lawsuit pages, notes that federal Conserve hip lawsuits were consolidated in court because of the device’s serious alleged side effects (In re: Wright Medical Technology, Inc., Conserve Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation, MDL-2329, U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia).
MicroPort Scientific Corporation will purchase Wright’s OrthoRecon division for $290 million, Wright announced on its website.*
“The sale of the division does not mean that metal-on-metal hip implant recipients may not file a lawsuit if they believe their Wright hip implants have harmed them,” said Rochelle Rottenstein, principal of the Rottenstein Law Group LLP.
Like other metal-on-metal hip implants, the Wright Conserve and Profemur Z have been the subject of research studies that found an alleged risk of metal poisoning (metallosis) and a high rate of revision surgery requirements.**
