Why were Stryker® hip implant components recalled?
The Stryker hip recall doesn’t actually include entire hip replacement products. Rather, it’s focused on one component—the LFIT™ Anatomic CoCR (Cobalt Chromium) V40™ femoral head—used in more than a dozen different Stryker hip products.
The metal piece is meant to replicate the rounded portion at the top of the femur bone that forms the “ball” in a natural ball and socket hip joint. According to Stryker, patients with the device have experienced higher-than-normal failure rates.
The recalled Stryker femoral head has been linked to an increased risk of:
- Taper lock failure
- Hip stem breakage
- Hip stem trunnion issues
- Joint instability
- Bone fractures
- Excessive metal debris within the body
- Joint noise
- Inflammation around the implant site
- Severe pain
In some cases, painful and invasive surgery is required to correct side effects caused by Stryker hip replacement products using the recalled LFIT Anatomic CoCR V40 femoral head.
You don’t have to know the make and model of your hip implant device to protect your potential rights to compensation. At Crumley Roberts, we know how to research defective medical device cases, and can verify the model of your hip implant at no cost to you.
