Component Loosening From Knee Replacement Lawsuits
Many patients have reported feelings of instability and dislocation after receiving knee replacement surgery. This is due to component loosening, or the loosening of device parts inside the body over time. If not repaired, this can become a serious concern for many people as it can lead to more dangerous side-effects.
In addition to extreme pain and risk of infection, component loosening often requires revision or replacement surgery to correct. Sometimes, component loosening is a result of a poor installation of the original device. It is important to notify your physician immediately if you suspect your knee device has become loose, or if you are experiencing any pain in the area.
Component loosening has been a factor in almost every recall the FDA has issued for Zimmer knee replacement products. Tibial component loosening is also the main reason for an unusually high rate of early failure in DePuy’s ATTUNE Knee System device.
Here is a list of knee replacement products that have had documented cases of component loosening:
- ATTUNE Knee System
- Persona Trabecular Metal Tibial Plate
- MIS Tibial Components
- NexGen LPS-Flex GSF Femoral Component
Component Loosening Knee Replacement Lawsuits
Our dangerous device attorneys can help if you or someone you care about has suffered from component loosening as a result of knee replacement surgery. Lawsuits have been filed against the device makers by both patients and their families seeking compensation for injuries caused by these dangerous devices. You may be entitled to a settlement.
What are the Criteria for Filing an ATTUNE Knee System Lawsuit?
Despite the overall high success rate in knee replacement surgeries, researchers have identified larger-than-usual failure rates with the DePuy Synthes ATTUNE® Knee System.
Problems with ATTUNE include loosening of the tibial component at the implant-cement interface within the first two years after implant. Patients often present with pain on weight bearing, swelling, and decreased range of motion.
Researchers believe that these failures are likely underreported, as competing companies cannot provide data on the revision components that they replace.
We are currently investigating cases involving individuals who have undergone revision surgery due to loosening after a knee replacement using an ATTUNE device.
