Stryker Corporation has issued a voluntary recall of its LFIT Anatomic CoCr V40 hip replacement devices. The company sent an urgent recall notification to surgeons late August 2016 advising of potential hazards associated with these devices.

Patients are at risk for suffering loss of mobility, dislocation, severe inflammation, severe pain, fracture and other injuries. Stryker warns these implants may give off excessive metallic debris, fracture at the hip stem trunnion, lose bone fixation strength, and disassociate the femoral head from the hip stem causing serious injury to patients.
