Zimmer NexGen Knee Recalls

The Zimmer NexGen LPS-Flex GSF Femoral Component was also recalled due to evidence of loosening. Additionally, the Zimmer Natural-Knee II Durasul Patella faces a Class II recall. This component is not part of the Zimmer NexGen product line.
Zimmer NexGen knee recalled components include: NexGen MIS Tibial Components,NexGen TM Tibial Trays, NexGen LPS-Flex GSF Femoral Component, NexGen MIS Modular Tibial Plates and Keels.
Stryker Knee Replacement Recalls
In April 2013, the FDA issued a Class I recall of Stryker’s ShapeMatch Cutting Guide. The Guides help to position knee replacement components and guide the marking of the patient’s bone prior to cutting. In November 2012, Stryker acknowledged manufacturing defects in the ShapeMatch Cutting Guide and instructed surgeons to discontinue use.
This knee replacement recall was because the software has a defect that causes wider cutting ranges. As a result, knee replacement patients may experience severe complications such as instability of the joint, fracture, chronic pain, and mobility limitations. Patients may also require the need for revision surgery.
