Profemur RecallPROFEMUR Recall – Unexpected Rate of Fractures After Surgery

October 8, 2015: MicroPort Orthopedics Inc. has issued a voluntary recall of its PROFEMUR Neck Varus/Valgus CoCR 8 Degree, a hip replacement device.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration instructed hospital staffs to immediately stop using and distributing the defective product, which reportedly had high rates of fractures. There are several signs that the device may be malfunctioning or has completely fractured:

    1. Patients could experience sudden pain
    2. Patients may have difficulty walking
    3. Performing common tasks may be problematic

Fractures could result in revision surgery to replace the neck and stem components of the PROFEMUR device.

A broken device and emergency revision surgery can result in serious adverse health consequences and could cause:

-Neurovascular damage

-Hematoma

-Hemorrhage

-In some cases, death

If you believe you received a hip replacement that falls under this recall, contact your doctor immediately.

If you or a loved one has been injured due to a defective PROFEMUR hip replacement device, call Cellino & Barnes now at (800) 888-8888 or contact us online for a free evaluation.

Client Thanks

I would like to thank your firm for representing our family on behalf of my late husband. This whole process was, at times, difficult for us and sometimes painful. But, we were always in good hands as Brian and Maria are two of the hardest working and sincerest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. They did a tremendous job.
