Zimmer Biomet Reverse Shoulder Recall

February 11, 2017—The FDA announced a Class 1 recall of the Zimmer Biomet Comprehensive Reverse Shoulder Implant Model 115340 based on information that the device is associated with a higher than expected failure rate. This is the highest classification of recall available to the FDA and reflects a situation where there is a reasonable probability that the use of the device will cause serious adverse health consequences or death. The issues with the Zimmer Biomet Reverse Shoulder device are so serious that many patients with the device may require additional surgeries to remove and replace the defective device.
