The Stryker hip lawsuit involves the LFIT Anatomic V40 femoral head utilized in the Stryker Accolade, and also the Rejuvenate and ABG II hip modules.

The LFIT Anatomic femoral heads manufactured before 2012 are experiencing a higher than expected failure rate, and the company has issued a voluntary recall of the medical devices. The defect can result in immense pain, mobility issues, broken bones, cobalt poisoning, chromium toxicity, metallosis, and complete hip revision surgery.

The Rejuvenate and ABG II Modular hip systems were recalled several years ago because the devices were corroding within the bodies of patients. The corrosion occurs at the modular-neck joint, and can cause muscle and bone loss. A global settlement has been reached in regard to these specific devices.
