Stryker Corporation Receives High Number of Safety Complaints Related to New Metal Hip Implant Components

October 7, 2016

Thousands of patients that received a Stryker Rejuvenate or ABG II Metal Hip Implant device have experienced serious medical problems and many have undergone multiple revision surgeries. To date, Stryker Corporation has paid out over $1 Billion in settlement payments to patients that were harmed by these unsafe and defective medical devices.

Now, two additional metal hip replacement components manufactured by Stryker Corporation have been found to cause almost identical threats to patient safety.

The Government of Australia recently issued a hazard alert for Stryker LFIT Anatomic V40 femoral heads. These components are used in many total hip replacement procedures. Unfortunately, these components have been found to fail at an alarmingly high rate, leading to devastating health issues for many patients.

The safety alert warns that patients who receive a defective LFIT V40 femoral head could experience symptoms including:

  • Pain
  • Loss of mobility
  • Inflammation
  • Adverse local tissue reaction
  • Dislocation
  • Joint instability
  • Broken bones around the components
  • Leg length discrepancy
  • Need for revision surgery
