Smith & Nephew Journey Uni Tibial Knee Implant Baseplates

In March of 2010, Smith & Nephew issued a Class 2 recall of its knee implant model called the Journey Uni Tibial Baseplate. The reason given for the recall was that Smith & Nephew “received complaints of the base plates breaking in situ. If a breakage occurs, the broken base plate must be revised and/or changed. If left unrevised a broken base could lead to instability and premature wear of the construct.”

Smith & Nephew claims there were over 38,000 of the Journey Uni TIbial Baseplates in commerce.
