 Stryker Recall Metal V 40 Femoral Heads Lawsuits

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?

This is a ball for total hip replacements that can be attached to hip stems, including the Accolade TMZF, Accolade 2, Meridian, and Citation. 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.

Written by lisaspitzer on . Posted in Class Action Articles, Physiomesh Hernia Mesh Lawsuit, Physiomesh Lawyer

Physiomesh Hernia Mesh lawyers are filing Hernia Mesh lawsuits for your failed Physiomesh used to repair your hernia. Ethicon voluntarily withdrew the Physiomesh from the  market in May of 2016  after independent studies revealed high rates of recurrence and failure from the Physiomesh.

What Is The Physiomesh?

The Physiomesh is a hernia repair mesh  made from polypropylene just like the vaginal mesh products. The FDA originally approved Ethicon’s Physiomesh on April 9, 2010. Ethicon used the FDA 510(k) approval program for the Physiomesh. This allowed them to get it on the market fast.

Problems With The Physiomesh

Numerous studies have shown that the Physiomesh has  lower incorporation strengths than the other hernia mesh products.  Physiomesh coating  issues were observed over time to lead to scar plate formation, but little to no abdominal wall adherence.
