The Firm With A Purpose

Exactech/Optetrak Knee Implant

Exactech has designed and sold a knee implant devices for 30 years. Our focus is on the recent history of the Optetrak knee implant system. Exactech has put out varying versions of the Optetrak knee implant in 1994, 1997, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2009, 2011, 2012, and 2013.

When the newest model was put on the market in 2013, Exactech executed a “silent recall.” Exactech instructed sales reps and distributors to discontinue promoting the Optetrak knee that used the “finned” tibial tray and replace all inventory with the 2013 knee implant that used the “fit” tibial tray because of serious issues with the cement failing to properly adhere to the “finned” models. We are currently aware of “fin” tray models continuing to be used at least through 2014.

Our initial intake criteria:

  • Implant of Exactech Optetrak knee 2009 through 2015 (any knee implant done during this time period will be accepted if potential client does not know manufacturer), AND
  • Revision surgery due to tibial loosening (any reported revision surgery or indicated need for revision surgery will be accepted on initial intake even if potential client is not sure of reason for the needed surgery)

Legal Representation for Zofran Claims in Alabama

Financial compensation may be available for children who have been affected by Zofran-related birth defects.
Zofran was only approved for treatment of nausea or vomiting among chemotherapy patients and surgical patients, but it has been widely prescribed “off-label” for treatment of morning sickness in pregnant women. Research has suggested that exposure to Zofran during the first trimester of pregnancy may increase the risk that children develop birth defects or congenital malformations.
Zofran side effects have been linked to reports of:
  • Cleft lip or cleft palate
  • Atrial septal defect (ASD)
  • Ventricular septal defect (VSD)
  • Heart murmur
  • Irregular heartbeats
  • Other heart defects
  • Fetal death
If you or a loved one took Zofran during pregnancy and have a child with birth defects, please contact the law offices of Phillip Wedgworth.
