Stryker LFIT V40 Femoral Head Hip Implant
Clark, Perdue & List is investigating injury claims related to failure of the Stryker LFIT V40 Femoral Head Hip Implant
Stryker LFIT V40 Femoral Head Hip Implant is used in hip replacement surgeries. According the the Australian equivalent of the FDA in the United States, the Stryker LFIT has “a higher than expected incidence of taper lock failures.”
The Stryker hip implant system features three components. The femoral neck is inserted into the thigh bone. The femoral head is the ball which rotates inside the hip socket. The taper lock connects the femoral neck to the femoral head. Failure of the taper lock could cause severe complications, including the need for additional surgery.
