The Stryker LFIT V40 Femoral Head  was combined with other modular hip system components during hip replacement surgery.  The femoral head locked into place at the junction of the head and stem.  The femoral heads can corrode causing the locking function to fail.

 If you received a hip replacement between 2002 and 2012, you may have a defective LFIT V40 femoral head.

Stryker Issues Urgent Medical Device Recall Notification To Medical Providers:

In August and September of 2016, Stryker issued an Urgent Medical Device Recall Notification to patients and doctors advising that the LFIT V40 femoral heads manufactured before 2011 had a higher than expected risk of taper lock failures.  Stryker listed excessive metal debris as another potential risk. 

LFIT V40 Femoral Heads are often found with Acccolade hip replacements.

Injuries Caused By Stryker Hip Replacement Failures:
​The LFIT V40 femoral head taper lock connects the head to the femoral neck.  When failure occurs the patient can experience:

  • Loss of mobility
  • ​Loss of range of motion
  • Pain 
  • Inflammation
  • Dislocation
  • Broken bones
  • Tissue damage  
  • Need for revision surgery

The Stryker hip replacement products listed on this web page contain chromium, cobalt and titanium.  Friction from normal movement, or the failure of the LFIT V40, can cause microscopic metal shavings to travel into surrounding tissues, joint fluid and blood stream.  This can lead to a serious conditions including:

  • Metallosis –  (harmful metal ions in the tissue, joint fluid, and blood)
  • Necrosis (premature tissue death)
  • Osteolysis (bone dissolution)
  • Pain and loosening of the hip implant
  • Pseudotumors – (resembles a tumor but is actually a mass of inflamed cells)
  • Need for revision surgery 

August 2016 - Stryker issued a product recall for its LFIT V40 Femoral Head component.
2009, 2011 and 2013 – Stryker issued product recalls relating to packaging and manufacturing errors with its Accolade Hip Stem.

April 2012:  Stryker issues a “Urgent Safety Alert” for the Rejuvenate and ABG II systems listing excessive metal debris and/or ion generation as a safety risk to patients.
