A Joint and Implant Manufacturer

issued a recall for thousands of plastic inserts used in hip, knee and ankle replacements due to the plastic starting to wear too early leading to implant failure and revision surgery.

The Federal Drug Administration (FDA) classifies this issue as a Class 2 recall because of the risks and damage it can cause. In some cases, a patient may need to have corrective surgery to reverse the damage.

WHY IS THERE A RECALL?

ankle replacement

Medical device company Exactech announced that their implant systems made after 2004 had a defect in the vacuum-seal packaging, causing the polyethylene insert component to oxidize and degrade. This packaging defect has caused many implants to prematurely fail forcing many patients to undergo unnecessary corrective surgery.
