Stryker hip replacement products have been the subject of lawsuits in the past and it seems there is the likelihood that Stryker is putting out yet another defective hip product in its Stryker LFIT Anatomic CoCr V40 femoral heads. These products are modular components used in total hip replacement procedures. The defective products can lead to failure rates for the hip replacements as well as side effects that can be very severe. The taper locks connecting the femoral head to the femoral neck can have a very high likelihood of failing. The symptoms that can come with the use of the Stryker product includes metal in the blood or other tissues, negative tissue reactions to the parts, inflammation, instability in the joints, fractured bones by the hip implant, dislocation, mobility losses, pain, and noise in the implant. These symptoms can cause very significant pain and problems for patients, so patients are to be alerted by their personal surgeons.
If you or a loved one has been implanted with the Stryker LFIT Anatomic CoCr V40 femoral head components, speak to your surgeon immediately and contact Inserra Kelley Sewell, personal injury attorneys, to discuss your possible claim.
