Stryker Expands LFIT V40 Safety Notification
Metal-on-metal hip implants manufactured by Stryker Orthopedics have been the subject of safety alerts and recalls in the past several years. Since the company’s August 2016 notification concerning its LFIT V40 femoral head, indicating a higher-than-expected number of complaints concerning the device, Stryker has expanded its safety notification to include eight additional products that include the device. Problems with the Stryker device may include pain associated with device loosening, dislocation, fracture, leg length discrepancy, inflammation, and pain requiring revision surgery.
