Defective Hip Implants
On December 8, 2000 Sulzer Orthopedics recalled its Inter-Op
acetabular shell for hip implants. These implants were sold primarily
after October, 1999, with a small number of lots sold after July, 1997.
About twenty thousand patients are affected by the recall.
The recall followed the reports of post-operative loosening of a number
of the shells. Testing of the shells reportedly revealed a lubricant residue
that was used in the manufacturing process. In some people this residue
may prevent your bones from bonding with your hip implant. Loosening of
the shells may recur because of this reaction.
Symptoms include pain in your inner thigh or groin, pain when arising
from a seated position or pain with standing and weight bearing, if you
experience any of these symptoms please call us and your surgeon. You
should ask your surgeon for the specific lot number of your hip replacement,
in order to determine if the hip shell you received is covered by the
recall. The following information is provided to help you determine if
your lot # has been recalled.
