An overview...

On December 8, 2000, Sulzer Orthopedics recalled its Inter-Op acetabular shell for hip implants sold primarily in the U.S. after October, 1999, with a small number of lots sold after July, 1997. Approximately 17,500 patients were affected by the recall.

The hip implant part is the acetabular "shell" that is implanted into the upper part of the hip called the acetabulum. Normally, the bone would form an integrated bond with the shell; however, it appears that bone does not always bond with shells when the lubricant residue is present. Loosening of the shell may occur.

According to company tests a number of patients who received the shell during their total hip replacement have experienced loosening of the shell. Sulzer states that there are specific hip symptoms associated with this problem.

If you have pain in your inner thigh or groin, pain when arising from a seated position or pain with standing and weight bearing, you may want to consult with your doctor.

We handle personal injuries claims from defective recalled hip implants for clients across the nation.

If you want to preserve a potential legal claim for a defective hip implant product you believe you received, you should contact an attorney immediately, since all states have mandatory time periods in which lawsuits must be filed; otherwise, your case may be forever barred.

If you have any questions about the information provided above, please contact us.
