Shoulder Replacement Device Failure & Fractures

The product liability attorneys of Murray Guari Trial Attorneys are 3d rendered illustration of a shoulder replacementinvestigating alleged claims against Zimmer Biomet’s Reverse Shoulder implant.

The Comprehensive Reverse Shoulder device, manufactured by Zimmer Biomet, is used by thousands of patients who undergo shoulder surgery for rotator cuff tear, arthropathy arthritis, or to fix previously failed shoulder joint replacements. The Comprehensive Reverse Shoulder device is surgically implanted to help restore arm movement. The device simulates the humerus bone and socket of the shoulder.

Alleged side effects and injuries from the use of the Comprehensive Reverse Shoulder device include:

  • Metal poisoning and metal toxicity released into the body
  • Infection
  • Bone and tissues damage
  • Fractures
  • Component erosion
  • Dislocation or insecurity of the replacement
  • Permanent loss of shoulder function
  • Death

In 2017, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration issued an urgent Class 1 recall, the most serious type of recall, as these devices may cause serious adverse health consequences, injuries or death. The device has a high rate of fracturing, more so than what is stated on the product’s label.
