Exactech Lawsuit: Nash & Franciskato along with co-counsel firms Cohen & Malad, LLP, and Maglio Christopher & Toale Law Firm has filed a lawsuit against Exactech, Inc., the maker of the Connexion GXL hip liner implant used in Total Hip Arthroplasty (THA) or hip replacement surgery.
Read the Press Release: Exactech Connexion GXL Hip Liner Implant Lawsuit
Nash & Franciskato has been talking with patients throughout the country who have received the Exactech Connexion GXL implants and suffered injuries associated with excessive wear to the plastic liner insert leading to early device failure.
Exactech Connexion GXL acetabular polyethylene liners were recalled by the FDA in June 2021 after a number of adverse event reports indicated premature device failure. The Exactech liners were recalled after the company notified its sales agents of an increased risk of premature wear with the product. Prior to this notice, Exactech notified surgeons that the GXL had been phased out and replaced by a newer product. No mention was made of any pending recalls.
The recall stated patients who received these implants had an increased risk for premature wear and edge-loading of components that can lead to device loosening and lack of mobility, severe pain, and osteolysis or death of bone tissue.

Hip implant liners, also known as acetabular liners, are one of several parts of a complete hip implant. They often line the area between the ball of the hip socket and the cup it fits into to allow the implanted components to move freely and smoothly.
The Connexion GXL acetabular liner, manufactured by Exactech and composed of an ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene plastic (UHMWPE), was designed to be used in total hip replacement surgeries (primary and revision). Exactech marketed the Connexion GXL liner as being more resistant to wear and fracture; however, some studies have reported osteolysis in patients with the liner.
On February 7, 2022, the company recalled some knee and ankle implants with polyethylene liners with similar issues.
