Terrance and Rebecca Allore filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan against Wright Medical Group, Wright Medical Technology and Wright Medical Europe alleging defective design, defective manufacturing, failure to warn, misrepresentation, fraud, negligence, and breach of warranty.

According to the lawsuit, Allore received the Wright Profemur Total Hip System in 2008. In 2010, the femoral neck of the implant broke, forcing Allore to undergo revision surgery to replace the Profemur system.

A 2009 report of the Australian registry shows the Wright Profemur Z hip implant has a higher than anticipated revision rate, and a increasing number of American are filing lawsuits regarding the breaking or fracturing of the femoral neck of the Profemur systems which causes severe pain, and the need for risky revision surgery.

Like many other hip replacement system currently under fire in lawsuits across the country, the Wright Profemur Total Hip System was approved though the FDA’s 510(K) premarket approval process which speeds a device though the system if it is substantially equivalent to a device that has already been approved and is on the market.

Rebecca Allore is also suing for loss of consortium.
