Exactech Hip Implant Liner Failure and Recall
A study conducted by the Department of Orthopedics and Rehabilitation at the University of Florida College of Medicine found that Exactech Connexion GXL Hip Liners deteriorate and wear down much quicker than expected. This Connexion GXL Liner design failure has resulted in otherwise unnecessary revision surgeries following the initial hip replacement implant – often as soon as within 5 years after the initial surgery. Worse, 75% of the affected patients suffered osteolysis as a result of these Exactech poly wear failures. This progressive condition where bone tissue is destroyed diagnosis means X-rays of their hips showed bone loss and destruction to the hip socket (acetabulum).
What is an Exactech Connexion GXL Hip Implace Liner?
