Nearly 148,000 knee and ankle replacements with polyethylene components and inserts have been recalled due to an issue with the products’ packaging which may degrade the implants. It is possible that these recalled Exactech devices may fail while implanted in the body. Device failure may lead to complications including chronic pain, swelling, and dislocations. These problems could be severe. They may require costly and invasive revision surgery.
In August 2021, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recalled a number of Exactech knee and ankle replacements with polyethylene components and inserts. The recall emphasized the risk of device failure that could lead to health risks and require corrective revision surgery.
The Exactech knee recall and Exactech ankle recall involve devices packaged in a way where the materials became vulnerable to oxidation. Oxidation can lead to accelerated debris production and bone loss, leading to component fatigue, cracking, or fracture.
There is also an Exactech hip recall. This recall is for certain orthopedic hip-implant components with similar issues that can also lead to similar injuries.
If you or a loved one have an Exactech Recalled Implant, you may have received a letter from the manufacturer about the recall. If so, call ASK LLP today for a free consultation.
If you did not receive a recall letter, you may still have a recalled Exactech device. The recalled hip, knee, and ankle products include:
See below for a more extensive list of recalled Exactech implants.
Injuries from a loose ankle, knee, or hip replacement can be extremely painful or difficult to manage. Corrective revision surgery may be necessary to repair or replace the defective insert. Other side effects include grinding or other noises, inability to bear weight, instability in the knee or ankle, new or worsening pain, osteolysis, premature wear, and revision surgery. Due to product failure, victims of faulty Exactech hip, knee, and ankle replacements may have to endure costly and invasive revision surgery to repair and/or replace the faulty product.
