Loncar Lyon Jenkins is now investigating Stryker LFIT V40 product defect lawsuits in order to ensure victims receive due compensation
While administration of a $1.4 billion dollar settlement for their defective, recalled stems (Rejuvinate and ABGII) winds down, Stryker finds itself at the center of another recall related to their cobalt/chromium femoral head – the LFIT V40.
At this time Stryker is only recalling certain, specific lots of the LFIT femoral head, all manufactured prior to 2012. These recalled femoral heads were used as a part of the Accolade and Accolade 2 hip systems. While not affected by the recall, the LFIT femoral head is also used with Stryker’s Meridian and Citation stems as well.
Whether the recall is due to a design defect or a problem in the manufacture process is unknown at this time and Stryker has not released any information beyond the recall itself. The hips are being recalled due to early device failure resulting from damage where the femoral head meets the stem. Corrosion, metallosis, liner fracture, and stem fractures have all been associated with the recalled device.
