Zimmer Durom Cup: New Lawsuit alleges Hip Implant FailurePR Web
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) August 13, 2012
The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than Michael S. Bishal. And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.
According to court documents, on July 9th, 2012, a carate practitioner, Michael S. Bishal filed a lawsuit in North Carolina Eastern District Court (case no. 2:2012cv00043) alleging he suffered permanent pain and damage from his Zimmer Durom Cup. The Zimmer Durom Cup is an artificial hip component widely used in hip replacement surgeries in the US since 2006. Plaintiff claims that after he was implanted with the Zimmer Durom Cup, he began to suffer from tinnitus in 2010. In 2011, he tested positive for high levels of cobalt and chromium in his blood. He eventually was forced to undergo revision surgery.
This new lawsuit may be eligible to join the multidistrict litigation (MDL 2158) in the District of New Jersey, where the products liability cases involving the Zimmer Durom Cup hip device are centralized.
In July 2008 hip replacement components made by Zimmer Holdings, Inc. were recalled after it was learned that the surgical parts did not work properly, forcing many patients to undergo painful and costly additional surgeries to correct the defect.

Common symptoms may include: Pain in the groin, hip or leg Swelling at or near the hip joint A limp or change in walking ability
