Zimmer M/L Taper
Like several previous hip litigations, the M/L taper causes corrosion and fretting at the taper interface. Cases focus on the taper which will involve two stems and several heads. Corrosion and fretting at the taper can have serious impacts for patients including metallosis, adverse local tissue reaction, abductor loss, permanent injury, revision surgery and possibly death.
