  • Cause
    Zimmer is initiating a hazard alert for specific lots already implanted due to the potential that the threads may be out of specification. zimmer received twelve complaints over a period of two and a half years alleging difficulty threading an mis drop down stem extension or a drop down stem plug into the mis stemmed tibial component. there were no complaints received from australia. the potential risks for this issue are: · additional bone loss may occur if the mis tibial is cemented in place when the issue is identified and the surgeon elects to remove and replace.· early revision may occur due to loosening (if the mis stemmed tibial component is implanted without a drop down stem extension), and/or infection.· disassociation of the implanted articular surface may occur if the stem extension does not fully seat, thus causing the articular surface to not properly lock.
  • Action
    Zimmer is providing surgeons with details of the potential risks associated with out of specification thread.
