Stryker Accolade Hip Problems
The Stryker Accolade TMZF hip stem was first introduced in March 2000, consisting of a single piece of titanium that is implanted into the patient’s femur. Stryker stopped producing the original Accolade in 2012, and replaced it with the Accolade II, which is manufactured from a different type of titanium.
The change came following reports that the hip stem could fret and corrode, shedding chromium and cobalt debris into the surrounding tissue. This can cause a condition known as metallosis, or metal hip poisoning, which may lead to the death of the surrounding tissue and high levels of metal in the blood. It can also result in the corroded stem failing.
Stryker Accolade hip complications could also be caused by the use of certain Stryker LFit V40 femoral head components manufactured before 2011.
In August 2016, Stryker issued an urgent field action notice (PDF) to orthopedic surgeons worldwide, warning about the LFit V40 femoral head, which is commonly used with Stryker Accolade hip replacements.
The Stryker LFit V40 Femoral Head has been linked to a higher than usual rate of failures, resulting in pain, loss of mobility, the shedding of metal debris, and often the need for revision surgery.
