Zimmer NexGen CR-Flex Knee Problems
The major issue with the Zimmer NexGen CR-Flex knee concerns the "high-flex" femoral component that is designed to give the patient an increased range of motion. According to experts this high-flex design may contribute to the loosening of the tibial and/or femoral components which can lead to hip and knee pain and revision surgery.
Zimmer Knee Replacement Failures
In March 2010, prominent knee surgeons presented data at the conference of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, stating that the failure rate of the cementless Zimmer NexGen Cr-Flex knee replacement was roughly 9 percent. Furthermore, these doctors suggested that the number of knee problems that require revision surgery could be even higher.
Zimmer Knee Revision Surgery
Prominent Chicago orthopedic surgeon Dr. Richard Berger published a March 2010 study called, "The High Failure Rate of a High-Flex Total Knee Arthroplasty Design." In the study, Dr. Berger stated that 8.3 percent of the 108 subjects of the study required knee revision surgery within 2 years of their original implantation as a result of Zimmer knee failure to adhere or loosening.
