Defective Hip Implants

Defective Hip Implants

Over the years, thousands of individuals have undergone hip replacement surgeries to improve their quality of life and regain mobility. However, some patients who received artificial hip implants have experienced significant pain and health risks due to defective products. One such manufacturer, Stryker Orthopaedics, has issued a voluntary recall for certain lots and sizes of its LFIT Anatomic COCR V40 Femoral Heads. These faulty implants have caused patients to suffer from toxic levels of cobalt and chromium, leading to complications that require additional revision surgeries. In this article, we will explore the issues surrounding defective hip implants and explain how our law firm can assist patients in seeking compensation for their personal injuries.

The Concerns with LFIT Anatomic COCR V40 Femoral Heads

LFIT Anatomic COCR V40 femoral heads are modular components used in total hip replacement procedures. Unfortunately, it has been discovered that some of these femoral heads manufactured before 2011 have a higher than expected incidence of taper lock failures. The taper lock is a crucial part of the implant that connects the femoral head to the femoral neck. When this connection fails, patients may experience a range of adverse events, including loss of mobility, pain, inflammation, dislocation, joint instability, broken bones, leg length discrepancy, and a need for revision surgery.
