Class II Recall of Zimmer Inc.'s Persona® Trabecular Metal™ Tibial Plate
Zimmer Inc., the largest knee implant manufacturer in the world, has issued a voluntary Class 2 recall of its Persona Trabecular Metal Tibial knee implant component.
Zimmer has issued a voluntary recall of the product due to an increase in complaints of loosening and radiolucent lines, which are gaps between the artificial knee component and the bone. These gaps can cause pain, instability and in certain cases may require surgery to repair and correct.
It is estimated that more than 11,000 implants have been sold in the United States and all sizes and lots have been affected. The FDA issues Class 2 recalls when a product can “cause temporary or medically reversible adverse health consequences.” For more information about the Persona Trabecular Metal Tibial Plate FDA Class 2 Device Recall, please visit the FDA recall page.
