The FDA has recalled the Zimmer knee replacement which has a high likelihood of failure. The Zimmer Persona® Trabecular Metal™ Tibial Plate is 1 of 3 main parts of the entire replacement knee unit. This defective product has been shown to pull away from the leg bone. Patients with the Zimmer knee replacement are experiencing loosening of the joint. X-rays also point to radiolucent lines appearing which indicate failure. Knee replacement patients have noted knee pain, popping joints, limited motion, and joint instability.
