Manufacturer Narrative

No devices were received; therefore the condition of the components is unknown and an evaluation is not possible. Review of the device history records for the tibial component identified no deviations or anomalies. The knee component compatibility was reviewed and identified no issues with any of the components. A product history search identified no other complaints for the part and lot combination of the tibial component. Primary operative notes state the patient underwent right total knee arthroplasty (tka) due to degenerative arthritis of the knee. Good stability and excellent kinematics through a full range of motion were noted during trialing. X-ray findings included in the primary operative report states that the prosthesis was in the proper position and in anatomic alignment without any evidence of rotation, loosening, or stress shielding. Operative notes from the revision surgery state that the tibial component was loose and had subsided. The femoral and patellar components were not revised. A field action was conducted on february 19, 2015 in which zimmer voluntarily removed the persona trabecular metal (tm) tibial implant from the field due to a higher than anticipated complaint rate for radiolucent lines and loosening. The device in question was implanted prior to this field action. Fda recall contains the related tibial lot number. The corrective actions investigation determined that the likely root causes for the higher than anticipated complaint rate are that the persona tm tibia allows the potential for the tibial implant to sit proud on the resected tibial surface and the persona tm tibia has less initial stability than predicate devices.

 
Manufacturer Narrative

Examination of the returned device confirms foreign debris in the tm pad and around the pegs. Nicks and gouges were noted on the finished surface. Review of the device history records for the tibial component identified no deviations or anomalies. If any further information is found which would change or alter any conclusions or information, a supplemental will be filed accordingly. Zimmer biomet will continue to monitor for trends.
