Tibial loosening following knee replacement surgery is a growing concern for many patients. Some patients have reported issues within the first month following knee replacement, though most reports made to the FDA suggest a majority of failures take one to two years. If you or someone you love has suffered damages from a defective knee replacement, our experienced attorneys are here to help.
Symptoms of a failed knee replacement system may include:
- Irregular or uncontrolled knee movements
- Pain in and around the knee
- Swelling and inflammation
- Warmth and heat around the knee
Some warmth is common following knee replacement surgery but should subside within four to six weeks. Warmth after this point or in combination with other symptoms may suggest a failed knee implant and necessitate revision surgery.
In addition to revision surgery, problems that may be related to a defective knee replacement system include bone loss, infection, and severe tissue damage. These things may not be repairable through revision surgery and could result in a lifetime of discomfort and limited mobility.
