Zimmer Hip Replacement Recall
The Zimmer Durom Cup hip replacement system was a metal-on-metal hip system sold in the United States from 2006 until July of 2008.
In July 2008 Zimmer suspended sales and recalled the Durom hip system. The recall was issued because the Durom Cup was failing within 2 years after hip replacement surgery in numerous patients. The high implant failure rates that led to the recall were caused by the Zimmer Durom Cup’s inability to bond with the host bone, causing the implanted hip replacement part to migrate.
