Stryker Accolade Hip Failure Lawsuits

Medical device manufacturer Stryker has had different artificial hip devices that have failed in the past. The Stryker Accolade is the latest in a series of device failures for the beleaguered company.

Michigan-based Stryker Corp. began as the Orthopedic Frame Company in the 1940s. Over the years the company expanded and now markets 57,000 products worldwide. Its net sales reached $9.9 billion in 2015, and 13% of those sales came from hip replacement products, according to the company’s annual report.

Problems with Stryker Accolade Hip Implants

The Stryker Accolade is composed of titanium alloy, which may corrode or break down due to the metal-on-metal contact. The high early failure rate of this hip device may be attributed to metal particles from the device breaking off and releasing metal particles into the body, which can affect the bone and soft tissue in the immediate area. As the particles spread throughout the body and bloodstream, they can cause significant health problems.

Stryker Accolade hip implant corrosion can be linked to:

  • Bone fractures
  • Bone loss
  • Cardiomyopathy
  • Implant failure
  • Infection
  • Loosening of the implant
  • Neurological impairment
  • Pain and swelling
  • Skin rash
  • Thyroid problems
  • Tissue death near the implant site

The design of the Stryker Accolade hip device lends itself to cracking or wearing of the neck of the stem. Additionally, the head of the device may become dislocated or disassociated, such that revision surgery is required to replace the stem altogether.

Any hip revision surgery is painful and may lead to further complications, especially if the surrounding area has been infected or necrotized.
