Stryker Accolade V40 Taper Lawyers

After years of recalls and legal battles over failed metal-on-metal and modular hip implants, the orthopedic medical device industry is facing another onslaught of metal hip implant failures. This time, the Stryker Accolade V40 Taper is in the crosshairs. The Stryker V40 Taper is used on many of the Stryker hip implant devices. The medical literature on the V40 Taper is showing growing concerns over the device’s use. Similar to the failed metal-on-metal hip implants, the impact of the Stryker V40 Taper to the implant recipients health are the same, catostophic failure of the device and serious injury to the patient.

Signs of Stryker Accolade V40 Taper Failure

If you have a Stryker V40 Taper, there are signs and symptoms, indicating implant failure, that you should be aware of. The injuries involving the Stryker V40 Taper typically fall into one of two different categories, metallosis cases and dissociation cases.

  • Signs of Metallosis / Metal Poisoning Cases – These cases involve increased levels of cobalt and/or chromium in the blood, resulting in bone damage, tissue damage, pseudotumors, and inflammatory fluid around the implant. Patients will experience severe pain several years after the initial hip implant surgery. Revision surgery may be required within a few years of the initial hip implant, due to premature device failure.
  • Dissociation Cases – These cases are not as common as the metallosis cases, but are common enough to be of concern. In dissociation cases, the taper of the V40 taper is ground down into the shape of a bird beak. When this occurs patient will be presented with a dissociated head. In layman’s terms, the head of the hip implant will fall off or separate from the neck. This can cause catastrophic injuries and severe pain.

Has the Stryker Accolade V40 Taper Been Recalled?

Despite a hazard warning of the Stryker Accolade V40 being issued in Australia and a recall in Canada, at the present time, there has been no recall initiated in the U.S. Regaedless, there are mounting reports from the medical community and warnings from Stryker indicating that the safety of the device is susceptible to catastrophic failure. This failure has been seen in multiple Stryker products that use the V40 component.
