Exactech Knee, Ankle, and Hip Replacements

Knee and Ankle Replacements

Exactech recalled the liners in their knee and ankle implants manufactured in 2004 or later because non-conforming packaging may cause the liners to degrade and fail early. This could potentially lead to bone loss and revision surgery. Surgeons implanted 147,732 of these recalled inserts in the United States.

Exactech recalled some knee and ankle replacements in Optetrak, Truliant, and Vantage brand knee and ankle replacements in August of 2021 and extended the recall to include “all knee and ankle arthroplasty polyethylene inserts packaged in non-conforming bags regardless of label or shelf life.”
