What is the Exactech Optetrake Knee Implant?
One of the models of knee replacements that has been shown to be troublesome for some patients is the Exactech Optetrak. The Exactech Optetrak tibial tray is used in total knee replacement surgeries (also called total knee arthroplasty). Recent reports to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) indicate a trend of early failure in Exactech Optetrak knee implant devices that may cause the devices to loosen and require revision surgery to replace the defective device
Symptoms of Knee Implant Failure
In general, knee replacements will function well for many years, allowing patients relief from chronic arthritis or other ailments. However, early failure of knee implants can cause significant pain and the need for additional surgery.
Symptoms of knee implant failure include:
Knee pain, which can range from mild to severe
Loss of mobility
Instability due to loosening of the implant
Loss of range of motion
Swelling in the knee
Inflammation and reddened skin
