Zimmer Durom acetabular cups, used for total hip replacements, had U. S. sales suspended last month until the firm revises surgical instructions and retrains physicians. The suspension is expected to cost the company $20 million to $30 million, it said.
Zimmer stopped distributing Durom cups after an investigation of its manufacturing process and more than 3,100 Durom Cup implantees. The investigation showed elevated incidents of cups loosening and an elevated revision surgery rate.
