DePuy Attune Knee Lawsuit  – Defective Design

A DePuy Attune Knee lawsuit claims the knee implant is defectively designed.

Surgical glue will not properly hold the DePuy knee device to the tibia bone. The defective design causes early failure, severe pain, mobility loss, and more.

Our law firm is accepting cases for people who received an Attune Knee replacement.  Anyone with an Attune knee who suffered injury — such as early failure, severe pain, infection, mobility loss, or revision surgery – is welcome to call our law firm for a free legal consultation regarding a potential DePuy Attune Knee Lawsuit claim.

David P. Matthews has been handling lawsuits against medical device makers for two decades. Board certified in Personal Injury Trial Law, he is listed among the Best Trial Lawyers in America and has been voted a SuperLawyer by his peers for 14 years.

Attune Knee Failure Rates

The Attune Knee device has been failing at an unacceptably high rate. Failure occurs because this medical device was designed with too-smooth surface.  That smooth surface makes it difficult, or impossible, for medical glue to effectively hold an Attune Knee device to a tibia bone. Testing has shown the Attune Knee replacement to be 75% smoother than  previous knee-replacement prosthetics.

INDIVIDUAL CASES, INDIVIDUAL ATTENTION

We may file or settle a claim individually or as part of a group on a case-by-case basis. 

Whether your claim is filed individually or as part of a group fighting the same defendant, our goal is always to provide each of our clients with individual attention.

Negligent Design

Attune knee lawsuits claim negligent design. DePuy negligently designed the Attune knee by choosing to give it an ineffectually smooth metal surface. That smoothness keeps medical glue from sticking to it, preventing the knee replacement from remaining in place.

Because the cement-like material cannot adhere to the Attune Knee device, the knee breaks loose from the patient’s tibia bone, causing extreme pain and limited mobility. This failure often occurs within two years after surgery.  The device should last for at least 12 years, or even for 20 years.

Attune Knee Failure Signs

A total knee replacement is a major surgical procedure. The knee is the largest and hardest-working joint in the human body. An orthopedic surgeon must remove the damaged knee joint and replace it with a prosthetic joint — usually made from metal, ceramic, or plastic. The ends of the femur and the tibia must be removed and cut into a shape that can receive implants which copy the joint’s natural shape.

Orthopedic surgeons use a special type of adhesive cement to make a knee replacement stick or adhere to a patient’s natural bone.  Failure of this adhesion process triggers the high, and early, failure rate of the DePuy Attune knee replacement system.
