Overview of Case: This was a product liability matter, plaintiff Alan Warner, 63, had a “Profemur R” prosthesis implanted to replace his artificial hip. Three years later, on Oct. 27, 2010, he was walking in his home when he suddenly felt severe pain in and around his left groin. He was unable to walk and immediately lay down. The following morning, he presented to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and was diagnosed with a left femoral stem fracture. At the hospital, it was determined that the Profemur R implant had snapped at the stem. The Profemur R femoral component (serial no. 037409895) was manufactured by Wright Medical Technology Inc.
