Did you or a loved one have had an Exactech knee replacement between 2004 and 2022?

On August 31, 2021, Exactech recalled over 147,000 knee replacements already completed and inserted into patients’ bodies.
Why is it Defective?
As shown in the diagram, the tibial plastic insert fits between the femoral component and the tibial component and acts as a new cushion or cartilage for your replaced knee joint. During a recent review of its knee implant manufacturing process, Exactech learned that one aspect of the packaging for the tibial insert has been out of specification and may have allowed oxygen from the air to diffuse into the tibial insert prior to it being implanted in your knee. This can lead to oxidation, which can cause the tibial insert to wear out earlier than expected or to become damaged after being implanted.
Premature wear of the tibial insert can lead to additional surgery. If your tibial insert has worn out earlier than expected or has been damaged, you may need additional treatment.
If you have been experiencing any new or worsening knee swelling, pain while walking, inability to bear weight, grinding or other noise, instability, or any new symptoms of clicking in your knee, these are signs of deterioration.
