KALAMAZOO, Mich. — Stryker Orthopedics, widely viewed as the largest manufacturer of medical equipment and orthopedic devices, has issued a hazard alert for a specific range of LFIT Anatomic CoCr V40 femoral heads.
The controversial V40 femoral heads, manufactured before 2011, reportedly have a higher than expected incidence of taper lock failures, according to the urgent medical device recall notification.
The taper lock is the part of the implant that connects the femoral head to the femoral neck.
If this occurs, the patient could experience:
- loss of mobility
- adverse local tissue reaction
- joint instability
- broken bones around the components
- leg length discrepancy
- need for revision surgery
Stryker has notified surgeons that it is voluntarily recalling certain lots and sizes of its LFIT Anatomic COCR V40 femoral heads because of serious health risks to patients.
Stryker advised the public of a “higher than expected” incidence of taper lock failure for certain sizes of its device. Possible patient complications from taper lock failure include: device loosening or fracture, necrosis of surrounding tissue, and metallosis, which could require additional surgery to revise or replace the product.
