MCS Hip Implant Complications

Despite the fact that the majority of MCS hip implants sold over the years have been successful, there have been certain situations where these Exactech® manufactured implants have resulted in complications for recipients. These complications have been traced directly back to defective packaging that allowed implants to be exposed to the atmosphere, which causes premature degradation of the material, resulting in subsequent joint looseness and failure.

In the majority of these cases, the best way to resolve the situation is through surgery in order to replace any defective parts. Individuals who are having complications with MCS® hip inserts normally experience the following symptoms:

  • Joint Instability
  • Joint Swelling
  • Joint Impairment
  • Joint Pain
  • Joint Stiffness

MCS Hip Replacement Lawsuit

Many different types of implants manufactured by Exactech are now being recalled by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This includes MCS® implants, which are part of a Class 2 Device Recall by the FDA. The cause behind this recall is premature material deterioration due to improper packaging from the factory, which includes a number of other Exactech® systems. If you are suffering from complications as a result of a MCS® insert or any other type of Exactech® device, there is the possibility that you could be eligible to file a lawsuit and receive 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 allows for victims to seek compensation through legal action. Accordingly, this lawsuit may qualify as a mass tort or class action lawsuit.

In order to be considered to be eligible for an Exactech® hip replacement lawsuit in the United States, there are several requirements that must be met:

  • Received a MCS® hip implant within the United States
  • Suffered ill effects from a MCS® implant that prematurely malfunctioned due to packaging defects
