Pennsylvania Exactech Knee Recall Attorneys
Do You Have an Exactech Knee or Ankle Implant Lawsuit?
If you have suffered harm because of a knee or ankle implant manufactured by Exactech, you could have grounds for a lawsuit. The medical device manufacturer has recalled a number of its knee and ankle implant products manufactured after 2004 because of a packaging defect that can cause a key component of the polyethylene insert to degrade before use. This can cause the implant to fail prematurely, leading to acute pain and the need for revision surgery to replace the defective implant.
