Exactech Optetrak Knee Failure

National Defective Medical Device Attorneys | Explaining the cause behind Exactech Optetrak knee failure, and helping clients with their Exactech Optetrak knee lawsuit.

Patients with knee replacement may notice losing movement and range, having unusual pain or swelling.

Those are symptoms of what could be a failed implant, as has happened to some who received the Exactech Optetrak system or its components.

While not all recipients have problems, failure of this Optetrak replacement were due to a faulty piece of the knee system. This prompted victims to sue the maker, Exactech, Inc., a company based in Florida known for its knee replacement implants.

At Greg Jones Law, we are investigating cases of failed Exactech Optetrak knees. If that is your case, contact us to get a free consultation.

How to Detect a Failed Knee Implant?

Plaintiffs claimed that the company concealed knowledge of a defect and the risks or dangers from patients and their doctors. The victim also claims to have suffered severe and permanent injuries, which require ongoing rehabilitation and medical care.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has reports about failed Optetrak knee that required a revision due to loosening component. The FDA also made a Class 2 recall for mislabeled devices.

Symptoms of a failing knee replacement include:

Pain, ranging from mild soreness to severe

Swelling

Noticeable warmth of the joint

Mobility problems

Instability caused by the loosening of the joint

Know The Device Maker

Patients may not know the brand of knee replacement equipment that was used in their surgery, but their surgeon will have records of the exact type used, down to the serial number. Also, the doctor may have given you a laminated card with all the important information need to identify it.

When the pain and instability caused by the loosening of the implant becomes a problem, it usually turns out that the patient will have to have a “revision surgery”.

In other words, a new surgery to take out the original implant and replace it.  This means the patient would have to go through all the pain, suffering, the rehab, the concerns about bills and being able to work to make your payments and take care of the loved ones.

It has become too common for medical device manufacturers to put making profit over people. But they have the duty to provide safe products. If there are risks of harm associated with their devices, they also must provide adequate warnings.

ALTERNATIVES TO A KNEE FAILURE

If a knee implant manufacturer fails to warn about all the risks, to doctors and patients, it should be held responsible for the injuries it causes. Those are consequences that the victims and their families must live with every single day, not the manufacturer.

At Greg Jones Law we want to hold the manufacturer responsible, be liable, so you get paid for you medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and for any permanent disability you or a loved one may suffer.

We have a proven track record of helping victims of dangerous drugs and medical devices.
