New Stryker Recall Metal V 40 Femoral Heads Alert
Stryker has voluntarily recalled some of their metal V40 femoral heads used with hip implants. This effects the
- ABG 2 stems.
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. Patients with V40 metal heads that suffer hip poisoning have substantial medical and legal needs.

Total Hip Replacements
A total hip replacement is a common surgery for people with hip pain caused by degenerative joint disease or rheumatoid arthritis. The surgery is done to restore motion of the joint and function to the muscles and ligaments. The top of the femoral bone (thigh bone) is removed and a new round piece is inserted into the bone. The goal of having a hip replacement is to increase mobility and enhance the quality of life. However, the Stryker hip implants fell short of this and hundreds of recipients are now faced with pain, suffering and the need for revision surgeries.
Stryker Hip Replacement Complications and Injuries include:
Severe inflammatory reactions
Pain in the groin
