Serious Injuries Or Death Are Possible
The Zimmer Biomet Comprehensive Reverse Shoulder Humeral is a shoulder replacement implant designed to restore shoulder function and arm movement. It is particularly beneficial for people who have suffered a rotator cuff tear, suffer from a type of arthritis known as arthropathy, or who have had a previous shoulder joint implant that failed. Because the device held so much promise, the FDA approved it through the 510(K) fast-track program. This enabled Zimmer Biomet to market the product without having to conduct human trials.
In its recall notice, the FDA notes that patients with Zimmer Biomet Comprehensive Reverse Shoulder implants could suffer shoulder fractures. If a patient suffers such a fracture, he or she must undergo revision surgery, which in turn increases the risk of permanent loss of shoulder function, infection, or in rare cases, death.
