Exactech® has recalled 147,000+ defective joint replacement products (Hip, Knee, Ankle). The FDA has classified this as a Class II recall, meaning that exposure to the product may cause temporary or medically reversible health consequences. An issue with the products' packaging may cause oxidation and cause the replacement to wear out faster than expected. Over time, this can severely degrade the mechanical properties of the polyethylene inserts. This plastic component acts as cartilage, or a cushion, between the metal components of the new knee joint. Ultimately, these recalled products can lead to costly revision surgery and further injuries.
If you or a loved one have an Exactech ankle, hip, or knee implant contact us immediately for a free consultation.
The massive recall includes certain Optetrak®, Optetrak Logic®, Truliant®, and Vantage® products made by Exactech.
Common symptoms of a loose ankle, knee, or hip replacement can be so painful to manage that corrective revision surgery is required to repair or replace the defective insert. See if your implant is listed below.
