class i recall on profemur neck varus valgus cocr 8 degree
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a Class I recall for PROFEMUR Neck Varus/Valgus CoCr 8 Degree, Part number PHAC 1254, a hip replacement device by MicroPort Orthopedics.
MicroPort Orthopedics Inc. has received reports of an unexpected rate of fractures after total hip replacement surgery related to this specific modular neck. If the modular neck fractures, the patient may experience sudden pain, instability, and difficulty walking and performing common tasks. An acute fracture will require revision hip replacement surgery to remove and replace the neck and stem components. Acute fracture and emergency revision surgery are serious adverse health consequences and could lead to neurovascular damage, hematoma, hemorrhage, and even death.
Class I recalls are the most serious type of recall and involve situations in which there is a reasonable probability that use of these products will cause serious adverse health consequences or death. On August 7, 2015, MicroPort Orthopedics Inc. informed distributors and hospital staff of a voluntary device product recall. Distributors and hospital staff, including risk managers and surgeons, were instructed to stop using and distributing the affected product, and return the recalled product to MicroPort Orthopedics Inc.
