Exactech Knee Replacement Recall

Exactech issued the recall after discovering that the polyethylene insert components of all systems made after 2004 were packaged in defective vacuum-seal bags. The defective packing caused the oxidation of the polyethylene insert material.  Oxygen is great for living things but oxidation causes the component parts of the Optetrak, Truliant, and Vantage to significantly degrade over time. This defect will be the core of any Exactech knee replacement lawsuit.
