Recall of Exactech Joint Replacement Devices

The Exactech knee, ankle and hip joint devices were used to replace painful joints that suffered from arthritis, or other issues, and were no longer properly functioning. However, the Exactech devices that were manufactured between 2003 and 2021 were recalled in 2021 and 2022. In fact, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a reminder to patients and medical professionals regarding this recall in March 2023.

What Are The Symptoms Of The Exactech Replacement Recall?

If you are suffering from pain, weakness, swelling, grinding, noises, or issues with bearing weight on your implanted knee, ankle or hip device, you should contact your doctor and the attorneys at Shoop | A Professional Law Corporation. Exactech’s recall includes over 270,000 products, which were recalled due to defective packaging that may lead to oxidation of the devices. The recalled Exactech devices include Optetrak, Optetrak Logic, Truliant Knee Replacement and Vantage Ankle implant devices.

What Joint Replacements Are Being Recalled?

The Exactech joint replacement devices were recalled due to the placement of the devices into defective packaging bags. These bags lacked an oxygen barrier layer that served to protect the devices from a chemical reaction (oxidation), which can result in damage to the products over a period of time. As a result, the devices are subject to wear and tear, cracking, fracture and failure that may result in the need for revision surgery. Revision surgery involves the removal of an existing implantable medical device and its replacement with another device. There is also a potential for bone loss as a result of the failed joint replacement devices.

Exactech Class II Recall

The FDA classified the Exactech recall as a Class II recall, which means that the use of the recalled products may cause temporary or medically reversible health effects, but with the possibility of suffering irreversible medical consequences. As a result, the Exactech devices may be unsafe and cause great pain. Patients undergo implant procedures to improve their quality of life. However, when there has been an error in the design, manufacturing and /or packaging of a device, a consumer may experience a deterioration of their health.

Exactech Recall Compensation

You may be entitled to compensation for medical costs, including the expense for replacement surgery, as well as lost wages, future earnings, and pain and suffering as a result of having been implanted with a defective Exactech device.
