Zimmer Biomet has initiated an urgent recall of its Comprehensive Reverse Shoulder due to high fracture rates.  While this shoulder replacement device is intended to help restore arm movement, the FDA indicates that when the Comprehensive Reverse Shoulder fractures, individuals may require “revision surgeries which could cause serious adverse health consequences such as permanent loss of shoulder function, infection, or rarely, death.”  Given these substantial risks, the FDA has identified this as a Class I recall, which is the most serious type of recall.
