Vantage® Ankle Implant Complications
Over the past several decades, there have been hundreds of thousands Vantage® ankle inserts sold and installed, the majority of which have been successful and provided patients trouble free service. Unfortunately, some of these implants manufactured by Exactech have resulted in complications for individuals who have received them. This is a direct result of defective packaging that allowed the implants to be exposed to the atmosphere, which causes premature degradation and subsequent failure and looseness in the joint.
The correct way to rectify this situation is through surgery in order to replace the defective parts. The following symptoms are normally experienced by those having complications with Vantage® ankle inserts:
- Joint Instability
- Joint Swelling
- Joint Function Impairment
- Joint Pain
- Joint Stiffness
Vantage® Ankle Replacement Lawsuit
There are multiple ankle implants manufactured by Exactech® that are currently being recalled by the FDA. This recall includes Vantage® implants and is listed as part of a Class 2 Device Recall by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The cause behind the recall is material deterioration resulting from improper packing from the factory, and also includes the OPTETRAK® and TRULIANT® systems. If you are experiencing complications or suffering from issues that are a result of an Vantage® insert or any other type of Exactech® medical device, you could be eligible to file a lawsuit to receive the compensation you deserve.
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 for just compensation to be sought through legal action. Accordingly, this lawsuit may qualify as a mass tort or class action lawsuit.
In order to be eligible for an Exactech® ankle replacement lawsuit in the United States, an individual must meet several specific requirements:
- Received an Vantage® ankle implant in the United States
- Suffered from side effects from a defective Vantage® ankle implant
