EXACTECH® KNEE, HIP, AND ANKLE RECALL

Maschka, Riedy, Ries & Frentz is investigating the device recall of EXACTECH® polyethylene (plastic) inserts used in knee, hip, and ankle joint replacement surgeries. If you receive a letter from your surgeon informing you of a recall of your EXACTECH® knee, hip, or ankle replacement device or have had one of these devices implanted, please contact us at 507-625-6600 for a free consultation.

The manufacturer, EXACTECH®, has sent letters to surgeons who have implanted EXACTECH® knee, hip, and ankle devices informing them of the recall. EXACTECH® reports approximately 80 percent of EXACTECH® inserts manufactured since 2004 were packaged in out-of-specification vacuum bags. The use of the non-confirming bags may enable increased oxygen diffusion to the polyethylene insert, resulting in increased oxidation leading to accelerated wear debris production and bone loss, and/or component fatigue/fracture, all leading to the need for corrective revision surgery.
