Helping Families Nationwide Harmed By The Attune Knee Replacement Medical Device

Knee replacement surgery can offer relief for those who suffer from pain and limited mobility. However, in recent years, there have been many reports of failure associated with these implants and serious injuries have resulted. In some cases, patients sustain an increase in pain and restrictions that exceeds what they had before the implant. Many patients also have to undergo revision surgery.

DePuy Attune Knee Replacement Side Effects

Artificial joints are generally expected to last a minimum of 15 years, but some fail much sooner. Some patients are currently experiencing severe side effects from the DePuy Attune Knee Replacement system, including premature failure, sometimes as early as a year or two after the implant. The complaints filed by patients implanted with the Attune system describe tibial baseplate loosening of the knee implant, which may lead to:

  • Severe Pain
  • Infection
  • Inflammation
  • Bone Loss
  • Muscle Damage
  • Nerve Damage
  • Stiffness
  • Painful Revision Surgery
  • Extensive Rehabilitation
  • Amputation of Limb(s)
  • Decreased Range of Motion
  • Difficulty Putting Pressure on the Knee

Many patients also report a loss or lack of bonding of the knee component to the bone after the failure, which frequently leads to additional surgical procedures, including revision surgery.

Despite the fact there is no active recall on the DePuy Attune knee system, The Fox Law Firm is actively investigating Attune knee failures and the device’s complications.

Symptoms Of A Failed Attune Knee Replacement

How do you know if your DePuy Attune® knee implant has failed? Symptoms of a failed knee replacement may include the following:

  • Instability and Loosening: If you’re experiencing instability in your knee when you stand or put weight on it, or your knee is moving backward or sideways in any manner, this may be a sign of a failed knee implant.
  • Pain, Inflammation, Swelling or Redness: When the knee lining becomes inflamed, it generally causes fluid to build up resulting in the sensation of swelling. This is another indication that something could be failing with a knee implant.
  • Persistent Throbbing or Pain: If you’re experiencing constant or persistent throbbing or pain when your knee is in motion, you could be suffering from a failed implant.
  • Warmth or Heat in the Knee: Although this is a normal sensation for a few months following surgery, if warmth or heat in your knee returns, this could be caused by a failed Attune knee implant.
  • Stiff Knees or Difficulty Walking: If you are experiencing stiff knees or decreased walking ability, this may be a sign of a defective implant.
  • Clicking or Grinding Sounds in the Knee: When moving your knee, if you are hearing clicking or a grinding sound, or experiencing a sensation, this could be caused by a failed Attune knee implant.

Other possible complications associated with a defective DePuy knee implant include severe pain, nerve damage, loss of limb, amputation of the limb, and the need for revision surgery.

If you think your DePuy Attune® knee implant has failed, please consult with your doctor.
