Optetrak® Knee Implant Complications
Exactech®, the makers of the Optetrak® knee insert, have sold hundreds of thousands of joint replacement systems over the years, the majority of which have had great success. Unfortunately however, there are some patients who have had complications and difficulties with these knee implants after surgery.
These complications are a direct result of defective packing that resulted in abnormal levels of deterioration in the joint that can cause excessive and premature wear and looseness in the joint surface. Typically the only way to rectify this is through surgery. Patients who are experiencing complications with these Optetrak® inserts usually have one or more of the following symptoms:
- Instability in the joint
- Impairment of Joint Function
- Joint Pain
- Stiffness in Joint
- Swelling of Area Around Implant
Optetrak® Knee Replacement Lawsuit
Optetrak® is one of several knee implants made by Exactech® that are being recalled by the FDA for defects related to material deterioration caused by improper packaging from the factory. Other implants include models such as the TRULIANT® and VANTAGE® knee systems, which are now listed as part of a Class 2 Device Recall by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). If you are suffering complications that are a result of an Optetrak® or any other Exactech® medical implant devices, you could be eligible to file a lawsuit and receive just compensation for your suffering.
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”, Class 2 Device Recall allows for just compensation to be sought in the form of legal action. Accordingly, this specific lawsuit may qualify as a class action lawsuit or mass tort.
In order for an individual to be able to file for an Exactech® hip replacement lawsuit in the United States, there are several requirements that must be met. Specifically, you or your loved one must have:
