Why are Attune Knee replacements Failing?
Surgeons who have reviewed cases of premature Attune knee replacements are failing because of debonding of the tibial implant-cement interface. In other words, the cement that adheres the tibia to hold the implant in place isn’t sticking enough to prevent destabilization of the knee replacement.
- Patients that have the following symptoms may have experienced a premature Attune knee failure:
- Instability and Loosening
- Unusual Swelling
- Decreased Range of Motion
- Persistent Pain
While there are always risks associated with surgeries, when the medical care you received was the cause of the harm, you may have a knee replacement or medical malpractice claim.
