What is the defective metal hip component?
The Stryker hip issue is focused on a single component used in more than a dozen hip replacement products—the LFIT Anatomic CoCR (Cobalt Chromium) V40 femoral head. The part replicates the “ball” (or femoral head) at the top of the femur bone that forms a ball and socket hip joint and has failed at a higher-than-expected rate.
Patients with recalled Stryker hip replacement components may experience:
- Hip replacement failure
- Hip stem breakage
- Implant dislocation
- Difficulty standing or balancing
- Bone fractures
- Metal poisoning (metallosis)
- Joint noise
- Inflammation near implant site
- Severe pain
In some cases, surgery is required to correct Stryker hip replacement complications caused by the recalled LFIT Anatomic CoCR V40 femoral head.
