Recalled Exactech® Knee and Ankle Replacement Systems:

If you had an Exactech® knee or ankle replacement and experienced early failure leading to a revision surgery, you may have a legal claim.
On February 7, 2022, Exactech, Inc. issued an “Urgent Medical Device Correction” pertaining to more than 145,000 knee arthroplasty polyethylene inserts and 1,561 ankle inserts due to the inserts being packaged in vacuum bags that may have caused the inserts to prematurely degrade, wear, and tear. As a result of these failures, patients have undergone corrective revision surgery. The knee and ankle polyethylene inserts that are subject of the voluntary recall were used with the following types of replacement systems:

  • Exactech Optetrak® Knee Replacement
  • Exactech Optetrak® Logic Knee Replacement
  • Exactech Truliant® Knee Replacement
  • Exactech Vantage® Ankle Replacement

Symptoms You Might Experience from These Faulty Implants

Signs that your Exactech® knee or ankle replacement system may have failed include:

  1. Pain in the knee or ankle joint
  2. Inability to bear weight on the joint
  3. Grinding noise within the joint
  4. Knee or ankle swelling
  5. Instability in the joint
  6. Limited mobility

Potential injuries and side effects associated with the premature degradation of Exactech® knee and ankle replacement devices include:
