Complications Associated with the Zimmer Biomet Shoulder Replacement
The Comprehensive Reverse Shoulder replacement device is surgically implanted to restore arm movement for patients with rotator cuff tears who develop a severe type of shoulder arthritis called arthropathy. It can also be used for patients with rotator cuff injuries who have had failed shoulder joint replacement in the past.
Due to the defective device fracturing at a high rate, patients are at the risk of having to undergo revision surgeries, which may result in serious adverse injuries such as permanent loss of shoulder function, infection, or even death.
Zimmer Biomet issued an Urgent Medical Device Recall Notice on December 20th, 2016 for devices manufactured between August 25th, 2008 and September 27th, 2011. The recall includes a total of 3,662 devices distributed during October of 2008 to September of 2015.
