Understanding the Exactech Ankle Replacement Recall

If you’ve had an Exactech ankle replacement, you need to know about the recall. The recall was issued in June 2021 due to a potential defect in the device, which can cause serious complications for patients. Certain lots of the device, manufactured between February 2018 and July 2020, are affected.

The potential defect in the device is related to the tibial tray, a component of the ankle replacement. The tray may not have been manufactured to the correct specifications, which can cause the device to fail prematurely. This can result in pain, instability, and the need for revision surgery. If you have had an Exactech ankle replacement and are experiencing any of these symptoms, you should contact your doctor right away.

If you have been affected by the Exactech ankle replacement recall, you may be entitled to compensation. It’s important to contact a qualified attorney who can help you understand your legal options. Lefante Law Offices has experience representing clients in product liability cases, and we can help you get the compensation you deserve. Contact us today to schedule a free consultation.

 

Recognizing Symptoms of Complications

You may notice some warning signs of trouble after your ankle surgery, such as swelling and redness that resemble a lit matchstick, indicating the presence of inflammation that needs to be addressed promptly. This inflammation can be caused by an infection, which is a serious complication that requires immediate medical attention. Other symptoms of infection include fever, chills, and drainage from the surgical site.

Another potential complication that can arise after ankle replacement surgery is loosening of the implant. This can cause pain, instability, and a feeling that the ankle is giving out. If you experience any of these symptoms, it’s important to contact your surgeon right away. Loosening of the implant may require revision surgery to correct.

Nerve damage is another potential complication that can occur after ankle replacement surgery. This can cause numbness, tingling, or weakness in the foot and ankle. If you experience any of these symptoms, it’s important to bring them to the attention of your surgeon. In some cases, nerve damage may be temporary, but in other cases, it may require additional treatment or surgery.

 

Seeking Medical Attention and Legal Help

When seeking medical attention after ankle surgery complications, it’s important to act quickly and communicate any concerns to your healthcare provider in order to receive prompt and effective treatment. Delaying medical attention may worsen your condition and increase your risk of long-term complications.

Be sure to describe your symptoms thoroughly and provide your doctor with a detailed medical history of your ankle condition, previous surgeries, and any medications you’re taking.

If you’ve experienced complications after receiving an Exactech ankle replacement, it’s important to seek legal help as well. A qualified attorney can help you understand your legal rights and options, and may be able to help you pursue compensation for your injuries and related expenses.

Contacting LeFante Law will allow you to work with a reputable attorney who has experience with product liability cases and who has successfully represented clients in similar situations.

Remember that seeking medical attention and legal help are both important steps in protecting your health and rights after experiencing complications from an ankle replacement surgery.

Don’t hesitate to speak up and take action if you have concerns about the care you’ve received or the medical device that was used in your procedure.

By being proactive and seeking support from qualified professionals, you can take steps to protect your well-being and seek justice for any harm you’ve suffered.

 

Holding Manufacturers Accountable for Defective Products

Holding manufacturers accountable for defective products can ensure that patients receive safe and effective medical devices in their surgeries. As a patient who may have been affected by the Exactech ankle replacement recall, it’s important to understand your rights and options for seeking compensation.

With the help of an experienced attorney, you can hold the manufacturer responsible for any harm caused by their faulty product. Manufacturers have a responsibility to design and produce medical devices that are safe and effective for patients. When they fail to meet this standard, they should be held accountable for any harm caused.

By pursuing legal action against the manufacturer, you can not only seek compensation for your medical expenses, but also help prevent future patients from suffering similar injuries. An experienced attorney can help you navigate the legal process and hold the manufacturer accountable for their negligence.

We can help you gather evidence, negotiate with the manufacturer’s legal team, and represent you in court if necessary. With our help, you can focus on your recovery and rest assured that your legal rights are being protected.
