This case involves a patient who suffered a serious orthopedic incident following a failure of a prosthetic knee system. The Plaintiff had the prosthetic knee for several months before it failed. The particular knee replacement system was a modular design that failed at the point where the prosthetic was attached to the femur, and it appeared that the joint was machined improperly. Corporate documents and the FDA’s MAUDE database reveal that there have been multiple reports of adverse events regarding the fracture or failure of the same type of components that failed in this incident. It was alleged that the series of knee implants had been manufactured defectively, and that the company that produced the prosthesis was aware of the risk yet failed to take any action to address it.
