The details and dangers of the Exactech® hip, knee, or ankle implant hardware recall
Medical device manufacturer Exactech® has issued an urgent recall covering many of its knee, hip, and ankle replacements made since 2004–and not all surgeons have necessarily notified affected patients that they have a recalled knee, ankle, or hip implant.
The issue is that the recalled Exactech® hardware devices were manufactured with a “non-conforming” vacuum bag without the technology to ensure quality operation for the expected length of time.
As a result, the premature wear on the plastic components of these medical devices–including bone loss and other dangers or injuries–may even require revision surgery.
Here are the injuries and complications common with Exactech® hip, knee, or ankle implant hardware:
- Revision/replacement/corrective surgery
- Degeneration of bone (osteolysis)
- Loosening of device components
- Dislocation of implant
- Severe pain
- Stiffness and reduced mobility
Hundreds of thousands of Exactech® knee, ankle, and hip replacements have been put into patients since 2004.
Patients with recalled Exactech® devices may be able to make a legal claim for compensation if they suffered injuries, premature wear, or required surgery to fix problems with their knee, ankle, or hip devices.
How to know if a victim qualifies for compensation from an Exactech® hip, knee, or ankle implant hardware recall
Victims who’ve received an Exactech® total knee replacement, total ankle replacement, or total hip replacement may or may not know that some of these medical devices manufactured since 2004 have been recalled for a faulty insert.
Implant hardware manufacturer Exactech® has recalled hundreds of thousands of total knee replacement, total ankle replacement, and total hip replacement systems.
Patients who were made to suffer as a result of this recall may certainly be owed justice in the form of compensation, providing they meet a few criteria with respect to symptoms.
Those who were implanted with an Exactech® knee, ankle, or hip device from 2004 and beyond and suffered any of the following symptoms, may qualify for a free legal case evaluation to determine if they are eligible for compensation:
- New or worsening pain
- Inability to bear weight
- Grinding or other noise
- Instability in the knee or ankle
- Premature wear
- Revision surgery
The Shield Legal Online team believes that victims of corrective surgery after an Exactech® hip, knee, or ankle implant hardware recall should be able to address the Exactech® manufacturer and get compensation.
