Zimmer is initiating a voluntary recall of Persona Trabecular Metal Tibia, according to the FDA.

The device is used in either posterior cruciate retaining or sacrificing surgical procedures to treat knee conditions. Zimmer recalled the device following an increase in complaints of radiolucent lines and loosening. All sizes and lots of the affected devices are being removed from distribution. Additionally, all affected products will be located and quarantined immediately.
