Article by
Kevin Timms

Integra LifeSciences is voluntarily recalling one lot of its PyroTITAN Humeral Resurfacing Arthroplasty due to the belief that there might be a manufacturing defect which may lead to premature failure of the shoulder implant.

The recall has been made following the notification to the PyroTITAN Humeral Resurfacing shoulder implant manufacturer that and implant was found with a fracture when it was being revised.

The manufacturer is recalling all products within the same lot so that additional testing and investigation can take place to determine is a manufacturing defect exists with this lot. PyroTITAN Humeral Resurfacing shoulder implants with the lot number 09-2119 are effected by the recall.

If your PyroTITAN shoulder implant has failed prematurely it may be as a result of a manufacturing defect and you may be entitled to make a compensation claim. For further information please contact Kevin Timms on 01992 422 128 or email Kevin at
