A recall has been issued for over 140,000 Opetetrak, Optetrak Logic, and Truliant knee replacement systems, 130,000 hip replacement systems, and 1,500 ankle replacement systems.

Exactech, a medical device company that develops and markets orthopaedic implant devices and related surgical instruments, has issued a recall for specific models and lot numbers of the company’s knee, hip, and ankle replacement joints. The recall was issued due to reports of the high failure rate of the devices, with some patients experiencing failure and complications within a year of implantation. According to the FDA, these complications can include pain, swelling, difficulty walking or bearing weight, limited range of motion, instability or looseness in the affected joint, and the need for revision surgery. 

According to Exactech, defective bags caused these medical devices to prematurely fail. The apparent defect in these bags could allow oxidation of the parts, which could severely degrade the product and increase the risk that the devices would fail once implanted into a patient’s body. As Exactech has stated in its recall notice and in court filings, the oxidation could cause “accelerated wear debris production and bone loss, and/or component fatigue cracking/fracture, all leading to corrective revision surgery.” This “corrective” revision surgery can be more complicated and painful than original implantation surgery.
