Vantage Knee Implant Complications
While the majority of Vantage® knee inserts sold and installed over the past several decades have been successful and trouble free, unfortunately there are certain situations where these Exactech manufactured implants have resulted in complications for recipients. This has been traced directly back to defective packaging that allowed implants to be exposed to the atmosphere, causing premature degradation of the material and subsequent joint looseness and failure.
In most cases the best way to rectify the situation is through surgery in order to physically replace any defective parts. Those who are having complications with Vantage® knee inserts normally experience the following symptoms:
- Instability in Joints
- Swelling in the Joint
- Impairment of Joint Function
- Pain in the Joint
- Stiffness in the Joint
Vantage Knee Replacement Lawsuit
There are multiple types of implants manufactured by Exactech that are now being recalled by the FDA. This includes Vantage® implants, which are part of a Class 2 Device Recall by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The reason these implants are being recalled is due to material deterioration caused by improper packaging from the factory, which includes a number of other OPTETRAK® and TRULIANT® systems. If you are suffering from complications or issues resulting from a Vantage® insert or any other type of Exactech® medical device, 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 victims to seek compensation through legal action. Accordingly, this lawsuit may qualify as a mass tort or class action lawsuit.
In order for an individual to be eligible for an Exactech® knee replacement lawsuit in the United States, they must meet several requirements:
- Received a Vantage® knee implant within the United States
- Suffered ill effects from a Vantage® implant that prematurely malfunctioned due to defects
