FDA Issues Class 1 Recall For The...
MicroPort® Profemur™ Modular Neck Hip Implant
Discover How This Recall Affects You...
And How You Can Easily Seek Financial Compensation For Your Hip Replacement Medical Care
If you or a loved one had a hip replacement surgery and the doctor used the MicroPort® Profemur artificial hip device, then this may be the most important message you will ever read...
Here is why...
On August 7, 2015 the F.D.A. issued a Class 1 Recall (the most severe of recalls) warning everyone who had hip replacement surgery of serious complications linked to the MicroPort® Profemur Modular-Neck Hip Implant device -- a widely-used device implanted in patients.
A significant number of hip replacement patients who had the MicroPort® Profemur implanted during surgery are now experiencing devastating complications due to the device fracturing at higher-than-anticipated rates.
The complications patients are now experiencing are severe, including...
- Fractures in the device
- Sudden and severe pain in the hip
- Difficulty walking
- Falling or other severe injuries to the hip or leg
- Tingling or numbness in the hip or leg
- Increased blood levels of chromium and cobalt (the material the implant is made of)
- Need for revision surgery to correct or prevent the above
The manufacturer of the implant, MicroPort® Orthopedics, began noticing a large number of reported fractures of the Profemur Neck Varus/Valgus CoCR (Part #PHAC1254), made from June 15, 2009 to July 22, 2015.
The recall has been in effect since August 7th.
What To Do If You Suffered Complications Due To This Hip Implant
You or a loved one may be experiencing one, or many, of the difficulties listed above because of the MicroPort® Profemur Modular Neck implant failing.
So what do you do now?
If you believe (or know) you have this particular implant, you should visit your doctor and get your implant examined for any failures or complications.
Many patients with this implant require revision surgeries, where the original implant is removed and replaced with a unit that is safer and more reliable.
Additionally, theses implant devices can often cause elevated blood serum levels of chromium and cobalt due to wear that occurs between the moving parts of the device causing microscopic debris to enter the bloodstream.
Further, the Class 1 Recall for this implant suggests that you are at severe risk of your implant fracturing.
You do not want to risk having it fracture while you are walking or in a position where you could severely hurt yourself. So please visit your doctor to get it checked.
There Are Laws That Protect You From Recalls Like This...
When a hip implant manufacturer fails to design a product that meets the F.D.A.'s guidelines for patient safety, or fails to properly test their device, victims like yourself or your loved one suffer.
U.S. laws protect patients from such unnecessary injuries caused by poorly designed medical implants. There are strict standards in place to prevent recalls like this from occurring.
Seek Legal Advice From A Hip Implant Lawsuit Attorney That Can Help You Understand Your Options
If you believe you (or a loved one) are affected by this recalled hip implant, it would be worthwhile to have a conversation with a MicroPort® Profemur lawsuit attorney who can explain your rights.
You may be eligible to seek financial compensation as a victim of a recalled medical implant.
Financial compensation would be in the form of a settlement with the manufacturer, or the result of an individual lawsuit or class action lawsuit against the manufacturer for their failure to properly design, test or timely pull the hip implant from the market to prevent further injuries in patients.
