Hazard alert issued for NexGen MIS knee prosthesis

The Therapeutic Goods Association (TGA) has issued a hazard alert to Australian residents following the quarantine of a knee prosthesis manufactured by medical device company Zimmer.

The TGA has advised that a number of Zimmer’s NexGen Complete Knee Solution MIS Stemmed Tibial Components manufactured prior to 3 April 2014 may contain faulty components and could result in a loosening or failure of the implant.

The American health regulator recalled the prosthesis in 2010 and over 1,000 lawsuits were subsequently filed against the manufacturer.

The TGA has urged consumers and health professionals to report problems with the medical device to the association.
