Stryker Hip Recall

1 Nov 2016 | Comment


The MHRA has published an URGENT Field Safety Notice for the Stryker LFIT Anatomic CoCr V40 Femoral Heads (part of a hip prosthesis) .

It relates to all lots manufactured between 1 January 2002 and 4 March 2011. It arises because Stryker has received higher than expected complaints of taper lock failure which can in turn lead to conditions including fracture of the hip stem, noise, loss of fixation and in some cases dislocation.

It is hoped that relevant patients will be contacted directly about the recall by the hospital or surgeon who implanted their hip but if anyone suspects they may have one they should contact the hospital or surgeon immediately.

We represent hundreds of patients who are pursuing claims because of alleged failures of their artificial hips and we can provide free advice on what your rights are if you and your hip have to be recalled.
