Exactech Knee and Ankle Implant Recall Attorneys

Exactech recently disclosed that the Connexion GXL Acetabular liner, used in approximately 90,000 hip implants to date, was subject to premature wear. According to Exactech, his was found to lead to osteolysis, or bone destruction, in patients. Accordingly, Exactech no longer sells the Connexion GXL liner in the United States.

Then, in addition, Exactech recalled its total knee replacement and total ankle replacement implants. According to Exactech, its polyethylene components and inserts were improperly packaged. Essentially, the packaging was not completely sealed, causing oxygen leaks that damaged the components. This was found to lead to various complications and injuries, including loosening, device fracture, mechanical failure, pain and bone loss

How Do I Know If I Have an Exactech Knee or Ankle Replacement Implant Recall Claim?

exactech knee recall lawyer national lawsuit

The Connexion GXL liner for hip implants was widely used by Exactech since 2008. After several reports of premature wear and resulting bone loss, Exactech was forced to transition its Connexion GXL liners out of the United States market beginning in 2019. During that time, approximately 90,000 hip implants were performed with Exactech Connexion GXL liners.

Exactech has also stated that testing shows that most Exactech knee and ankle inserts manufactured since 2004 were not packaged properly. Basically, the components of the knee and ankle replacement implants were placed in packages that did not contain a protective barrier of ethylene vinyl alcohol. That allowed oxygen into the packages, which degraded the polyethylene components. As a result,  patients have experienced “new or worsening pain, inability to bear weight, grinding or other noise, swelling, or instability in the knee or ankle.” This has also led to device failure and injury to surrounding bone and tissue. Many of these patients have required, or will require, invasive corrective revision surgery.

Not surprisingly, all of this has spawned Exactech hip, knee and ankle lawsuits across the country. Your time to file a claim may be limited.  Contact us today, free of charge, with no obligation.
