Acumatch Hip Implant Complications
Despite the fact that the majority of Acumatch® hip inserts sold and installed over the years have been successful and trouble free, there are certain unfortunate situations where these Exactech manufactured implants have resulted in complications for recipients. These complications are a direct result of defective packaging that allowed implants to be exposed to the atmosphere which caused premature degradation of the material and subsequent joint looseness and failure.
The best way to fix this problem in most cases is through surgery in order to physically replace the defective parts. Those who are having experiencing complications with Acumatch® hip inserts usually have the following symptoms:
- Joint Instability
- Swelling in or around the Joint
- Minor or Major Joint Function Impairment
- Pain in or around the Joint
- Stiffness in or around the Joint
Acumatch Hip Replacement Lawsuit
Because the root cause of this recall is defective packaging, it affects a number of different implants manufactured by Exactech. This includes Acumatch® implants, which are part of a Class 2 Device Recall by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The reason why these implants are being recalled is material deterioration caused by improper packaging from the factory. If you or someone you know is suffering from complications or issues caused by an Acumatch® insert or any other Exactech® medical device, there is a possibility that you may be eligible to file a lawsuit for just compensation.
Defined by the Food and Drug Administration as “a situation in which use of or exposure to a violative product may cause temporary or medically reversible adverse health consequences”, a Class 2 Device Recall specifically allows victims to seek compensation through legal action. Accordingly, this lawsuit may qualify as a mass tort or class action lawsuit.
For an individual to be eligible for an Exactech® hip replacement lawsuit in the United States, they must meet several requirements:
- Was a recipient of a Acumatch® hip implant within the United States
- Suffered ill effects from a Acumatch® implant that prematurely malfunctioned due to defects caused by improper factory packing
