In the Spring of 2010, The New York Times reported certain problems associated with the NexGen CR-Flex. Specifically, The Times stated that Dr. Richard Berger conducted a study involving the CR-Flex. Dr. Berger’s study revealed that approximately9.3% of all NexGen CR-Flex he used on his patients failed prematurely requiring additional surgery. The results were particularly important because Dr. Berger had been a long time consultant of Zimmer.

In September 2010, The Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) issued a Class II recall of certain surgical techniques related to a specific tibial component Zimmer, Inc. designed and manufactured for use in connection with certain NexGen High-Flex knee replacement. This recall is only for a specific component piece associated with Zimmer’s knee products. However some patients have reported problems involving the Zimmer knee. It is estimated that since 2003, the NexGen CR-Flex and LPS-Flex knee replacement has been implanted in more than 150,000 patients. Additionally, Zimmer sold approximately 68,000 units of the tibial plate affected by the FDA’s recall worldwide. Some patients have already reported experiencing knee implant problems including: serious or ongoing pain, infection, swelling and loosening or dislocation of the implant.

Finally, in December of 2010, the FDA issued a second recall impacting certain component parts associated with several Zimmer knee replacement parts including the NexGen LPS-Flex. The recall involved manufacturing problems associated with the NexGen LPS-Flex that could result in premature failure.
