What’s the Problem?
June 5, 2017 – In a notice (PDF) published last week, the Supreme Court granted a request to consolidate all state lawsuits alleging injuries from the Stryker v40 femoral head into a multicounty litigation (MCL) for pretrial handling.
In September 2016, Australia’s Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) issued a hazard alert after Stryker received a higher than expected number of complaints of taper lock associated with LFIT Anatomic CoCr V4·0TM Femoral Heads manufactured prior to 2011.
Failure of a Stryker LFIT V40 femoral head may result in one or more of the following complications:
- Loss of mobility
- Adverse local tissue reaction (ALTR)
- Joint instability
- Broken bones around the hip implant
- Leg length discrepancy
This is not the first time Stryker hip implants have been linked to problems. In July 2012, the company recalled the Rejuvenate and ABG II hip implants over similar safety concerns. Lawsuits filed over those devices were later consolidated into a multidistrict litigation (MDL No. 13-2441) in the U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota.
