A widely used hip implant device called the Stryker® LFIT Anatomic CoCrV40 Femoral Head has been withdrawn from the due to alarmingly high-rates of failure and complications.
What Is The Stryker® LFIT Femoral Head?
The Stryker LFIT Femoral Head is a component used in an overall hip implant system. Orthopedic surgeons use interchanging parts from different manufacturers depending on a patient’s specific needs.
The Stryker LFIT Femoral Head was widely used by surgeons in the United States. Patients who received a hip implant between 2005 to 2011 could very well have received the dangerous Stryker LFIT femoral head.
Why Is The Stryker LFIT Femoral Head Prone To Failure?
The Stryker LFIT Femoral Head is made from the metals cobalt and chromium – which are prone to corrosion and wear. Because of this corrosion and wear, many negative health consequences have been occurring in patients, including:
- Loss of mobility
- Difficulty walking or standing
- Joint instability
- Broken bones around the components
- Chromium and Cobalt toxicity/poisoning
- Need for a 2nd (revision) surgery
