Massive Exactech Medical Device Recalls
Exactech manufactures a variety of medical implant devices designed to restore mobility that was lost due to a bone or joint injury, including knee implants, hip implants, and ankle implants, primarily. In recent years, a massive amount of these medical implant devices were recalled all due to the same manufacturing error. Product investigators determined that the vacuum bags used to package and transport the joint implants were defective, which caused oxidation in the metal parts of the implants. After a defectively packaged device was surgically implanted, the oxidation would worsen, causing the product to corrode or fail, potentially resulting in life-threatening complications.
Exactech medical implant device recalls in early 2022 included:
- 140,000 knee replacement systems
- 130,000 hip replacement systems
- 1,500 ankle replacement systems
Harm Caused by Defective Exactech Medical Devices
Even though Exactech issued a large recall for its defectively manufactured joint and hip replacement devices, it was too late for thousands of people nationwide. Many people have already had the defective medical devices surgically implanted and have already suffered serious injuries as a result.
Complications and injuries linked to defective Exactech knee, hip, and ankle devices include:
- Necessary revision surgery to remove or replace the device.
- Unsafe blood toxicity or metallosis caused by metal implant corrosion.
- Bone loss or osteoporosis around the implant site.
- Device fracture, including fractures that damage nearby soft tissues.
- Chronic pain caused by device misplacement.
- Inability to bear weight or walk comfortably or correctly.
