Zimmer Biomet M/L Taper Hip

Like several previous hip litigations, the M/L taper causes corrosion and fretting at the taper interface. Unlike the Stryker LFIT V40 litigation, we are not limiting potential cases to the head, but instead the taper which will involve two stems and several heads. Corrosion and fretting at the taper can have serious impacts for patients including metallosis, adverse local tissue reaction, abductor loss, permanent injury, revision surgery, and possibly death.
