Zimmer Natural-Knee Flex System Settles with Florida Plaintiff

Tampa, Fl Patient filed suit alleging that that pain and swelling she suffered in her knee was a result of the metal backing of the prosthetic breaking away from her patella, necessitating additional surgery and causing permanent physical impairment, mental anguish, loss of earnings and past and future medical expenses.

In most cases, the knee tends to flex anywhere from zero to a range of 120 to 140 degrees for most people.  Part of the system being scrutinized is what is called the High-Flex design, where the Zimmer knee can flex up to 155 degrees.

Zimmer has a variety of flex knee designs, even some designed a system specifically claiming to be gender specific targeting a woman’s anatomy.  This is called the Gender Solutions High Flex Knee Design.  Zimmer claims that the knees of women and men are designed differently.  All of their flex knee lines are currently under scrutiny.
