Zimmer M/L Taper Hip Implant Recalled
The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and the FDA have issued a new recall on the Zimmer M/L Taper with Kinectiv Technology System. The hip implant was found to have higher than expected amounts of residue left on the devices which can lead to allergic reactions, pain, infection, and even death. Recipients may need revision surgery to replace the implant, as well. Read the FDA’s safety recall here.
