New Issues With Stryker Accolade V40 Hip Implants

New problems associated with the Stryker Accolade Hip Implants are surfacing after medical literature reports patients experiencing metal-related poisoning, damage to the bone and tissue, and unnecessary revision surgeries after receiving the hip replacement. Two different types of injuries have been reported with the Stryker Accolade V40 implants:

  • Metallosis – Like some patients have experienced with other metal-on-metal hip implants, these implants have now been linked to increased levels of cobalt, chromium, pseudotumors, tissue and bone damage, and extreme pain development after the surgery. Additionally, reports of inflammatory fluid buildup and the need for a revision surgery due to premature device failure have been reported.
  • Dissociation – While uncommon, dissociation cases have been reported with the V40 taper is broken down by the metal head, resulting in corrosion. This corrosion may result in the separation of the implant’s head and neck, causing severe injuries.

These injuries may occur without warning, and the results could be catastrophic. While a formal recall has not yet been announced, published reports outline extremely severe injuries to the body due to the corrosion of the Stryker Accolade V40 Hip Implant.
