Exactech Knee Failures

The FDA has received reports regarding Exactech Optetrak knee component failure. These failures are due to tibial insert wear and tear of the Exactech knee replacement. Furthermore, Orthopaedics & Traumatology: Surgery & Research published significant research, documenting poor results of the Optetrak cemented knee implant after a mere 25-month follow-up. This is the most common type of joint replacement. Consequently, Arentz Law Group, P.C., is taking this matter very seriously.

Knee replacement failures can occur for numerous reasons. However, sometimes a defectively designed component causes the device to fail. In the case of Exactech, the wear of the polyethylene insert results in fragmentation and wear. Examples of this type of tibial insert wear can also be found on the FDA’s Maude database.

Symptoms of Failing Exactech Knee

Knee replacement surgery can be life-changing for those with chronic arthritis. However, knee implant failure can also be life-changing on the opposite side of the spectrum. Symptoms of Exactech knee failure include:

  • Pain, ranging from soreness to severe
  • Mobility problems
  • Swelling
  • Fluid production from irritation
  • Instability from joint loosening
  • Noticeable joint warmth – this warmth is usually significant and accompanied by skin redness from inflammation
