A panel of nine orthopedic surgeons took up the task of researching the design and potential dangers of the Attune® Knee System. Upon reviewing the device in close detail, they published their findings in the Journal of Knee Surgery. According to their educated and informed statements, the Attune® Knee System’s abnormally high failure rate can be attributed to the design of the device itself.
Attune® was specially designed to be more moveable than a typical knee replacement device so it could better absorb the impact of walking, running, etc. However, bonding agents used to keep knee replacement devices in place after surgery cannot adhere well to the moving parts of Attune®. Eventually, the bonding agent fails, the device becomes loose, and the patient suffers for it. To correct the issue, a patient will likely require additional surgery to remove and replace the Attune® Knee System.
