Cartiva toe implant injury update

Plaintiffs have filed some lawsuits over the years. Another was filed this month in federal court in Texas. Plaintiff amended the complaint the same day this week. The consequence of the failed Cartiva toe implant was once again, fusion.

Cartiva toe implant failure background refresher

The United States FDA approved this device in 2016. As explored previously, patients report several problems from the device. Common indications a Cartiva implant may be failing include:

  • Subsidence
  • Implant slippage
  • Pain in the joint
  • Grinding
  • Limited mobility
  • Gait affect, such as limping or favoring the other leg
  • Cartiva revision and removal surgeries

Recent reports suggest these problems persisted higher than expected. The end result is often another surgery and fusion of the bones, which is often complicated by the prior use of the Cartiva toe implant.
