Manufacturer Narrative

An event regarding pain involving a triathlon insert was reported. The event was not confirmed. Device evaluation and results: a visual, functional and dimensional inspection could not be performed as the device was not returned. Medical records received and evaluation: based upon x-ray information, the cause for this appears to be the abnormal calcifications around the patellar device. This is not related to mal-performance of an implanted arthroplasty device but related to abnormal bone formation along the patellar bone, outside the patellar component along the lateral and superior border of the component. Such problems are far from rare and comparable to heterotopic bone formation after hip arthroplasty. A similar problem is seen in the patient¿s opposite knee were a patellofemoral prosthesis is implanted and also with abnormal bone formation around the patellar device. This is a patient-related problem due to degenerative disease progress as probably related to contact of the patellar bone border to the metal of the femoral component in the trochlear groove. Such bony changes may at times continue even after adequate surface replacement of the patella. -device history review: device history review indicated the devices accepted into final stock from the reported lot were free from discrepancies -complaint history review: there has been no other event for the lot referenced. Based upon x-ray information, the cause for this appears to be the abnormal calcifications around the patellar device. The medical review noted abnormal calcifications in the pf-joint after knee arthroplasty have contributed to interference with optimal functionality of the pf-joint device causing anterior knee pain requiring revision. This is not related to mal-performance of an implanted arthroplasty device but related to abnormal bone formation along the patellar bone, outside the patellar component along the lateral and superior border of the component. Such problems are far from rare and comparable to heterotopic bone formation after hip arthroplasty. This is a patient-related problem due to degenerative disease progress as probably related to contact of the patellar bone border to the metal of the femoral component in the trochlear groove. The reported insert was most likely removed to provide additional space in the knee to address the patella issue more easily however further information such as revision operative notes are need to determine a definitive root cause. Pain can occur post-operatively for a number of reasons and is a symptom rather than the cause of the issue the patient is experiencing. No further investigation for this event is possible at this time. If devices and/or additional information become available to indicate further evaluation is warranted, this investigation will be reopened.
