YOU MAY BE ENTITLED TO COMPENSATION IF (A) YOU WERE IMPLANTED WITH AN EXACTECH DEVICE IN A KNEE OR ANKLE REPLACEMENT SINCE 2004 AND (B) YOU HAD OR NEED REVISION SURGERY. ACCORDING TO EXACTECH, SYMPTOMS THAT MAY BE A SIGN THAT YOU SHOULD CONSULT YOUR DOCTOR INCLUDE:
More than 145,000 knee and ankle replacement surgeries using Exactech knee and ankle implant replacement devices have been done in the United States since 2004.
Exactech recently revealed that these devices were packaged improperly, and as a result, the devices may have been exposed to excessive amounts of oxygen before they were implanted in your body which, according to Exactech, “can cause the plastic device to wear out earlier than expected or to become damaged after it is implanted into the patient’s body.”
Exactech has admitted that Exactech’s use of out-of-specification packaging may cause the implants “to wear out earlier than expected in some patients” and that “premature wear of the plastic insert of your ankle replacement can lead to the need for additional surgery (also known as revision surgery).”
Exactech admitted selling defective knee implant replacement systems for almost twenty years, including: Optetrak (knee), Optetrak Logic (knee), Truliant (knee), Vantage (ankle).
