Rogers Firm Warns of Hip Replacement Device Failure Alert
Keith, Miller, Butler, Schneider & Pawlik, PLLC, Warns Community of Failure Alert Issued to Health Providers and Device Recipients.
Rogers, Arkansas, November 9, 2016 (Newswire.com) - Northwest Arkansas law firm Keith, Miller, Butler, Schneider & Pawlik (K.M.B.S.P), with locations in Rogers and Fayetteville, is actively investigating device failure reports in recipients of an explicit hip replacement product manufactured by Stryker Orthopaedics, a global leader in the medical technology industry. K.M.B.S.P actively probes hip manufacturers and the release of dangerous products to the market.
Stryker Orthopaedics and the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), of the Australian Government Department of Health, issued a hazard alert for a specific range of LFIT Anatomic CoCr V40 femoral heads.
LFIT Anatomic CoCr V40 femoral heads are modular components used in total hip replacement procedures, according to the TGA. It has been identified that some LFIT Anatomic CoCr V40 femoral heads manufactured before 2011 have a higher than expected incidence of taper lock failures. The taper lock is the part of the implant that connects the femoral head to the femoral neck.
If taper lock failure occurs, patients may experience loss of mobility, pain, inflammation, adverse local tissue reaction, dislocation, joint instability, broken bones around the components, leg length discrepancy and need for revision surgery, according to the TGA.
