Zimmer Biomet Comprehensive Reverse Shoulder System Lawsuits
The Zimmer Biomet Comprehensive Reverse Shoulder System is a shoulder replacement surgery designed for patients that did not respond to traditional shoulder replacement surgery. When functioning properly, the device helps restore arm movement and function in patients suffering from rotator cuff injuries and arthropathy. However, reports have been surfacing that the device is failing at an abnormally high rate.
Zimmer Biomet, an Indiana-based medical device company specializing in shoulder replacement implant devices, has recently had to recall more than 3,000 of their artificial shoulder replacement implants. Increased rates of medical device reports, suggesting that the implants have a high likelihood of post-op fracturing, lead the FDA to initiate this Class I recall. A Class I recall is the most serious recall issued by the FDA indicating a serious risk of serious injuries or even death.
