Exactech® Recall Lawyers
Lawsuits for Defective Hip, Ankle & Knee Replacements
Exactech® has recalled several of its most popular hip, ankle, and knee replacement devices due to a high risk of defects and premature device failures. In most cases of a serious defect, the affected patient must undergo revision surgery, which carries its own risks, side effects, and potential complications. It is unfair for Exactech patients to be put through such hardships when they and their doctors had every right to trust in the reliability and safety of the hip, ankle, and knee implants.
Did you or a loved one suffer serious side effects due to a defective Exactech hip, ankle, or knee implant? Whether the product was part of a recall or not, Levy Konigsberg can help you explore your legal options and seek compensation. We are currently hearing from Exactech patients; the more people who contact us with a potential claim, the stronger each claim can become.

FDA Exactech Recall
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced an official recall of several Exactech products in August 2021. Based on its research, it was determined that certain polyethylene components of hip, ankle, and knee replacement devices could fail after implantation. Specifically, oxidation of these components caused them to become brittle and crack in many cases.
The large list of Exactech recalled devices includes:
- Exactech Acumatch®
- Exactech MCS®
- Exactech Novation®
- Optetrak Logic® CC Tibial Inserts
- Optetrak Logic® CR Slope Tibial Inserts
- Optetrak Logic® CR Tibial Inserts
- Optetrak Logic® CRC Tibial Inserts
- Optetrak Logic® PS Tibial Inserts
- Optetrak Logic® PSC Tibial Inserts
- Optetrak® All-polyethylene CR Tibial Components
- Optetrak® All-polyethylene PS Tibial Components
- Optetrak® CR Slope Tibial Inserts

- Optetrak® HI-FLEX® PS Tibial Inserts
- Optetrak® PS Tibial Inserts
- Truliant® CR Slope Tibial Inserts

- Truliant® CRC Tibial Inserts
- Truliant® PS Tibial Inserts
- Truliant® PSC Tibial Inserts
- Vantage® Fixed-Bearing Liner Component
Do you have an Exactech device listed in this large-scale recall? If so, then you could have a strong injury claim to file against the company for producing and selling an unsafe medical device. However, if you have any other Exactech brand joint implant and have experienced health consequences related to it recently, then you might still have a claim. Call (800) 315-3806 for more information.
Dangers of Exactech Defects
The dangers of an Exactech implant failure are not minor. Many patients with a failed device are put in serious danger and require urgent medical attention. If you are experiencing any complications with your Exactech ankle, hip, or knee replacement device, then please see a medical professional as soon as possible.
Defects with Exactech hip, knee, and ankle replacements can cause these complications:
- Complete joint dislocation
- Inability to bear any weight on the joint
- Chronic pain
- Bone degradation and damage
- Constant noise when walking or moving
- Painful swelling
The most dangerous complications of a defective Exactech device are revision surgery and the risk of metallosis. Revision surgery is required to remove and replace a defective device, so it is unavoidable in many cases. Metallosis is a form of blood toxicity poisoning caused by bits of metal entering the bloodstream, which can happen if an oxidized implant begins to break apart in the patient. Although, the risk of metallosis does appear to be minimal.
