Stryker Metal Hips
Stryker Metal Hips
If you or a loved one has suffered from a failed Stryker metal hip implant, you may be entitled to compensation. If you had your Stryker implant replaced, it is important that you contact us immediately as your time allowed to file a lawsuit may soon expire.
Stryker recently recalled over 42,000 L-fit V40 metal femoral head hip implants. On August 29, 2016 Stryker notified implanting surgeons that these implants have a “higher than expected” revision rate as a result of taper lock failures. Like other defective Stryker hip implants, the L-fit V40’s flawed design results in excessive wear causing metal from the cobalt-chromium head to get into a patient’s bloodstream and surrounding tissues. These implants are also subject to spontaneous dissociation caused by corrosion of the metal components. These types of failures can cause severe debilitating pain, metal poisoning and often require surgery to have the defective device removed and replaced with a new implant.
If you have suffered from any of the following problems with your Stryker hip implant, contact us today:
- Decreased range of motion
- Broken femur bone
- Metal poisoning
- Revision surgery
