Smith & Nephew Knee Implant Recall
Several knee implants made by the medical device manufacturer Smith and Nephew have been recalled. Smith and Nephew recalled two models of knee replacements and told the FDA of the problems associated with them.
The knee replacements failed to properly bond, resulting in the need for further operations, increased risks of infection as well as joint and muscular damage and ultimately a more painful rehabilitation.
The products included: cement-less versions of Smith and Nephew: Oxinium Genesis II and Oxinium Profix II knee replacement systems. The company reported that corrective revision surgery was needed for about 30 of the 3,000 patients fitted with the products in the United States. However, many other patients may also need to be checked in order to make sure the knee implant is not defective.
Claims against the manufacturer are being pursued on behalf of patients who have undergone unnecessary and painful revision surgery.
