Symptoms of a failed DePuy Attune® Knee Replacement System may include:

  • Instability
  • 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 the DePuy Attune® 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.
