FDA Recall on Zimmer Biomet Shoulder Replacement Device

The experienced shoulder implant lawyers of Houssiere Durant Houssiere LLP are prepared to help individuals who have suffered fractures and other injuries caused by a defective Comprehensive Reverse Shoulder Implant. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a Class I Recall (the highest class of recall) for Zimmer-Biomet’s Comprehensive Reverse Shoulder Humeral Tray Model 115340.

In the recall, the FDA warns that use of the Biomet shoulder device may cause serious injury and permanently disability because the devices are fracturing at a high rate. A Class I recall is the most serious since there is a high probability the device will cause serious health issues or death. They urge doctors to monitor patients who have the recalled device carefully. The FDA estimated close to 4,000 people have the device.

About the Zimmer-Biomet Shoulder Device

The Zimmer Biomet-produced device was implanted in patients who suffered rotator cuff tears and/or developed a form of arthritis called arthropathy, or a previously failed shoulder joint replacement. The Comprehensive Reverse Shoulder Device is surgically implanted and was designed to help restore arm movement for the patient. Reverse implants rely on different muscles to move the arm than traditional implants to help restore some motion to these patients who have lost mobility in their shoulders due to severe pain.
