Exactech Connexion GXL Liner Hip Implant Lawsuits

Hip replacement surgery is a common medical procedure that has improved the quality of life for millions of patients. While success rates for hip replacement surgery are generally high, patients may experience difficulties as a result of faulty implants. Some patients who were implanted with the Exactech Connexion GXL Liner Hip Implant have suffered complications that led to revision surgery.

What is Exactech Connexion GXL Liner Hip Implant?

Exactech Connexion GXL Hip Liner is an acetabular liner, which is inserted into a metal cup that is placed into a patient’s hip socket (the acetabular cup). During primary or revision hip replacement surgery, the liner is inserted between the acetabular cup and a compatible femoral head. The liner is composed of an ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene plastic. According to the manufacturer, the unique radiation process used to construct the plastic implant results in liners that are less prone to wear and tear.

What is Happening with Exactech Connexion GXL Liner Hip Implants?

According to recent reports, Exactech Connexion GXL Hip Liners can deteriorate earlier than expected and result in revision surgery. Both reports posit that early wear may be attributed to significant flaws in the design of the device. One study conducted by the Department of Orthopedics and Rehabilitation at the University of Florida College of Medicine identified nine of twelve patients who required revision surgery because they demonstrated osteolysis following total hip replacement surgery with Exactech Connexion GXL Liners. Osteolysis is the collection of debris in the joint, which causes degeneration in surrounding tissue and joints. The study concluded that patients outfitted with the Exactech Connexion GXL Hip Liner may be subject to a higher rate of early device failure from excessive wear.

Similarly, in a paper published by surgeons from the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, the authors warned of significant wear of the Exactech Connexion GXL liner shortly after surgery. They also noted the occurrence of osteolysis within 5 years on average after surgery. The deterioration of the device was described as “palpable” and “catastrophic” by the authors of the study. Surgeons recommend careful monitoring of patients with Exactech Connexion GXL Hip Liners following surgery.
