Stryker V40 Hip Implant Recall in Canada

Stryker V40 Lawyers - Sarasota, Bradenton, Punta Gorda, Tallahassee
On August 24, 2016 a recall was issued in Canada for specific lots and certain sizes of the Stryker LFIT Anatomic COCR V40TM Femoral Heads. The affected Stryker V40 hip implant devices were manufactured prior to 2011.

The recall notice, found on the Heath Canada website, indicates that the recall was initiated due to higher than expected complaints of premature failure of the LFIT Anatomic COCR V40TM femoral heads.

The model or catalog numbers included in the recall include, 6260-9-240, 6260-9-244, 6260-9-340, 6260-9-344, 6260-9-440 and 6260-9-444. There are more than 10 lot numbers included in the recall. Patients are advised to call the manufacturer to obtain the lot numbers of the affected hip implant devices.

The Stryker V40 recall in Canada comes in the wake of growing concerns in the U.S. regarding the same premature failure of the Stryker Accolade V40. While the FDA has yet to issue a Stryker V40 recall, there are medical reports in the U.S. indicating higher than normal failure rates of the V40, similar to those reported in the Canadian recall.
