Zimmer Biomet M/L Taper Hip
Like several previous hip litigations, the M/L taper causes corrosion and fretting at the taper interface. Unlike the Stryker LFIT V40 litigation, we are not limiting potential cases to the head, but instead the taper which will involve two stems and several heads. Corrosion and fretting at the taper can have serious impacts for patients including metallosis, adverse local tissue reaction, abductor loss, permanent injury, revision surgery and possibly death.
The Zimmer Biomet M/L Taper Hip Litigation Group was formed in 2018.
The group holds meetings and educational programs at AAJ conventions. Group members network throughout the year, sharing resources such as information regarding expert witness testimony and medical literature reviews. The group has a document library and has a list server.
The Group meets at AAJ Annual and Winter conventions.
