Comprehensive Reverse Shoulder Device by Zimmer Biomet Issues a Class I Recall

February 17th, 2017

When you go into a medical procedure, you want to be rest assured that all medical products being used are safe and have been thoroughly evaluated for any defects. Going into a surgery is a traumatic experience- the ambiguity, fear and the recovery period are all factors that leave patients worried.

Unfortunately, every year there are countless medical device recalls that put patients at risk for medical complications.

Recently Zimmer Biomet recalled the Comprehensive Reverse Shoulder device due to a higher failure rate than stated on the label. The fractures associated with this device could result in revision surgeries, leading to serious health consequences such as:

  • Permanent loss of shoulder function
  • Infection
  • Death

The Comprehensive Reverse Shoulder device is used for patients undergoing shoulder replacement surgery to help restore arm movement. This device is typically used on patients who suffer from rotator cuff tears who have developed arthropathy, a severe form of shoulder arthritis, or patients who previously had a failed shoulder joint replacement.
