What You Need To Know About These Cases
Knee replacements are the most common joint replacement surgeries in the United States. Unfortunately, artificial knee replacements are fraught with complications. Most knee implants are performed on those between the ages of 45 to 64 and are not designed to be long-term devices. Most knee replacement implants were never tested for long-term use, and some were never tested at all.
- Many knee implants on the market used an expedited approval shortcut to avoid expensive testing and possible rejection.
The US Food and Drug Administration has issued multiple knee implant recalls involving various companies, including:
- Johnson & Johnson
- Smith & Nephew
Side effects and injuries that commonly occur due to defective knee implants include:
- Pain, swelling, or bruising of the knee
- Infections of the knee joint
- Nerve and blood vessel damage
- Fractures of the bones around the implant
- Particles shedding from the implant
- Blood clots in the lower leg
- Bone death (osteolysis) due to particle shedding
