A financial analyst who spoke with Reuters linked the stock tumble to problems with the hip device Durom. According to the report, there was speculation that the Durom hip device may be subject to a recall due to problems. Reuters reported at the time that even Zimmer acknowledged the possibility of a possibility of a Zimmer Durom hip recall.
