Zimmer NexGen Flex Knee Implant
Recent reports have associated certain components of the Zimmer NexGen Flex knee replacement system with failure, painful loosening and the need for revision surgery. According to medical research findings presented in March 2010, failure rates on certain Zimmer NexGen components could be as high as 9%, and countless other recipients could experience significant pain and loosening of the knee. Prominent surgeons, including former investigators working on behalf of Zimmer, have called for the manufacturer to recall the defective product. In September, 2010, a component of the Zimmer NexGen system was recalled due to loosening.
