You might be wondering what the Exactech Hip Replacement Recall means for you and your hip replacement. To put it simply, Exactech, a medical device company, has issued a recall for certain lots of their Optetrak Hip Implant System due to potential defects.

These defects could cause serious complications for patients who have received the implant, such as pain, instability, and even the need for revision surgery. The affected lots were manufactured between June 28, 2011, and July 20, 2015, and distributed between June 29, 2011, and September 29, 2015. Your doctor can check the serial number of your implant to see if it is part of the recalled lots.

If you do have an affected implant, it’s important to take action. You may be entitled to compensation for any pain, suffering, or medical expenses that have resulted from the defective hip replacement. An experienced attorney can help you navigate the legal process and ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve.

Common Complications from Defective Hip Replacement Components

When it comes to faulty components in the lower body, complications can often arise that make everyday activities more difficult than before. One of the most common complications from defective hip replacement components is a dislocation. This occurs when the ball of the hip replacement is displace from the socket, causing severe pain and inability to move the affected leg. In some cases, surgery may be necessary to correct the issue.

Another complication that can arise from a faulty hip replacement is metallosis. This occurs when metal particles from the components rub against each other, causing metal debris to enter the bloodstream and surrounding tissue. Symptoms of metallosis include a rash or skin discoloration, joint pain, and fluid buildup in the affected area. In severe cases, metallosis can lead to bone and tissue death, and revision surgery may be necessary.

A loosening of the hip replacement components can occur over time, causing pain and difficulty with movement. This is typically due to the implant not properly fusing with the bone, and can require revision surgery to correct.

It’s important to monitor any changes in your hip replacement and report any concerns to your doctor immediately to prevent further complications.
