Thousands of patients have experienced complications from a Stryker hip implant and have filed lawsuits after suffering through intense pain and revision surgery. Stryker recalled its Rejuvenate, ABG II and Accolade TMZF modular-neck hip stems after the implants showed signs of corrosion and fretting. The company’s LFIT V40 Head is also speculated to cause the same issues.

Stryker Hip Recalls
Recalled June 2012
Studies found that the device’s modular-neck junction was prone to fretting and corrosion mechanisms, causing the release of metal ions into the bloodstream and surrounding hip tissue.
Recalled July 2009
The Accolade stem, when implanted in conjunction with the L-Fit V-40 femoral head, operates as a metal-on-metal hip implant system. The metal was found to fret & corrode, causing the release of metal ions into the body.
Recalled August 2016
Stryker notified it’s implanting physicians of the “higher than expected” incidents of taper lock failure, or spontaneous dissociation. The metal-on-metal design is also prone to cause metal toxicity.
