Stryker LFIT V40 Femoral Head Recall

On May 22, 2018, Stryker Corporation issued an Expanded Safety Notification on High Failure Rates of LFIT V40 devices. Earlier, on August 29, 2016, Stryker issued a recall for the LFIT V40 series of femoral heads (Stryker hip implant components) manufactured before 2011 and often used with the Accolade stem showing a high incidence of failures leading to patient injuries including loss of mobility; pain; inflammation; adverse local tissue reaction; dislocation; joint instability; broken bones around the components; leg length discrepancy; and a need for complicated and painful revision surgery. Specific hazards associated with the issues include disassociation of the femoral head from the hip stem; implant fractures; increased metallic debris in the body; insufficient range of movement; insufficient tissue tension; increased wear debris, and total loss of implant.

On September 27, 2016, Australian health authorities issued a “Hazard Alert” over the risk of injuries relating to the Stryker LFIT V40 femoral head hip implants citing the same dangers and warning consumers and health professionals about the higher than expected incidence of failures and injuries relating to Stryker LFIT V40 hip implant components. Specific item numbers of the affected models are listed below.
