Stryker Stricken Again: Another Hip Implant Lawsuit Filed
In a recent lawsuit against Stryker Orthopaedics filed by a Tennessee man, he claims that he suffered serious injuries following implantation of Stryker’s Accolade TMZF hip stem and LFIT anatomic CoCr V40 femoral head. Pending in the District of Massachusetts, the alleged side-effects from the metal-on-metal implant mirror those of many other plaintiffs with similar claims against the medical device manufacturer—including metallosis, permanent tissue damage, and painful device removal surgery. Among other claims, the plaintiff alleges that Stryker was negligent in the design of the device and that the company failed to warn of the associated risks.
