Stryker has voluntarily recalled some of their metal V40 femoral heads used with hip implants. Stryker hip replacement lawyers are interested in speaking to anyone with a failed: Exeter, Citation, Meridian, Reliance, Definition, Restoration, Accolade Rejuvenate ABG 2 stems.

This failure may be due to the problems with the V40 femoral head.

The failure of these heads is caused by corrosion and metal debris at the junction between the metal head and neck. The clinical results for patients include pain, loss of mobility, ambulation problems and an inability to work. Poisoning of the soft tissue, muscle and bone are the cause. Revision surgeries may be needed due to premature failures. Stryker lawyers  are seeking patients with  LFit V40 femoral heads made before 2011.

What Is The Femoral Head  Problem?

There have been numerous incidents  of taper lock failures on LFit V40 femoral heads made before 2011,  This taper lock connects the “ball” part of the hip joint to the  hip stem that is inserted in the femur. When it breaks the femoral head will detach from the femoral neck.
