Truliant Knee Implant Complications
There have been hundreds of thousands Truliant® knee inserts sold over several decades of production, the majority of which have been successful and trouble free. Unfortunately however, there are some individuals who have had complications with these knee implants manufactured by Exactech. These complications are a direct result of defective packaging that opened the implants inserts to air, causing them to prematurely degrade and have subsequent failure and looseness in the joint itself. The only way to rectify this situation is through surgery to replace the defective parts. Those who are experiencing complications with these Truliant® knee inserts usually have at least one of the following symptoms in their joint:
- Impairment of Function
- Localized Swelling
Truliant Knee Replacement Lawsuit
There are several knee implants manufactured by Exactech that are being recalled by the FDA, including the Truliant® implants. This recall, listed as part of a Class 2 Device Recall by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), is due to the material deterioration caused by improper packing from the factory, and also includes the OPTETRAK® and VANTAGE® systems. If you are suffering issues or 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.
Specifically 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 just compensation to be sought through legal action. Accordingly, this lawsuit may qualify as a class action lawsuit or mass tort.
