The FDA announced that it is recalling MicroPort Orthopedics’ ProFemur Long Cobalt Chrome 8 Degree Varus and Valgus Modular Neck implants over issues with the acute fractures.  The agency labeled the recall as a Class I, the most serious type of recall, which indicates “there is a reasonable probability that use of these products will cause serious adverse health consequences or death.”
