Many patients implanted with the Zimmer Durom® cup have reported experiencing pain and discomfort long after the initial implant surgery. First sold in the U.S. in 2006, doctors around the country increasingly began to suspect problems with these metal-on-metal hip implant devices. Then in 2008, Zimmer Holdings announced the suspension of sales of its Durom cup artificial hip implant component due to a high failure rate.

Why is the Zimmer Durom Cup defective?
A number of physicians have determined that in certain cases the Durom cup was not adhering to the bone and was coming loose or migrating around the socket. Doctors concluded that the surface of the cup did not allow it to adhere to the bone surface firm enough to stay in the correct position permanently.
Hip Implant Failure Symptoms
The signs and symptoms of hip implant failure include pain and discomfort around the hip, difficulty walking, swelling and tenderness, decreased mobility, and bulged or prominent lumps around the hip area.
How can I tell if I received a defective implant?
If you had hip replacement surgery between 2006 and 2008, you may have a Zimmer Durom implant. If your device is failing or must be replaced, contact your doctor immediately.
