There is an urgent recall for Exactech’s Connexion GXL Liners for Novation, Acumatch and MCS hip replacement systems. On June 24, 2021 Exactech issued a Frequently Asked Questions bulletin to its implanting Surgeons to let them know that many patients are at a higher risk of premature wear of the Exactech polyethylene Connexion GXL liners in their hip implant replacement systems. However, Exactech told doctors they were not recalling the liner. Yet on June 29, 2021 (just five days later), Exactech reversed course and did in fact issue a recall of its hip implants with the FDA. The FDA recall reports that there are 89,050 affected Exactech devices that may have been implanted in patients since 2008.
