Stryker Trident Hip Replacement Implant Recall Lawsuit

Stryker Orthopedics Trident Hip Replacement, Recall Lawsuit | Trident Acetabular PSL Cup, Hemispherical Cup System | Side Effects: Joint Pain, Squeaky Joints, Loose Hip Components

If you are a victim of a defective Trident hip implant made by Stryker Orthopedics, Parker Waichman LLP, a leading personal injury law firm would like to speak with you. Stryker Orthopedics recalled the Trident Acetabular PSL and the Hemispherical Cup Systems due to manufactuting problems. These Trident hip components have spawned a multitude of patient complaints involving joint pain, squeaky joints, and loosening of hip components, according to regulators. In many cases, victims of faulty Trident hip implant components have been forced to undergo additional painful surgeries to have the devices replaced.

If you or a loved one suffered painful complications because of a recalled Stryker Trident hip implant, you may be entitled to compensation. Our Stryker Trident hip implant recall lawyers are offering free consultations to all victims of this defective medical device. To make sure your legal rights are protected, please contact our Stryker Trident hip implant recall lawyers as soon as possible.

Stryker Trident Hip Replacement Recall

The Stryker Trident hip replacement recall was issued in January 2008. The recall involved two hip replacement cups – the Trident Acetabular PSL Cup and the Trident Hemispherical Cups – made at the Stryker facility in Cork, Ireland.  Acetabular Cups are used in the socket portion of replacement hip components.  At the time of the recall, the Trident Acetabular PSL Cup was the most commonly used Stryker cup in the United States.

Stryker said it issued the Trident hip implant recall because of concerns that the components could be contaminated with “manufacturing residuals” at levels that exceed company sterility standards.  However, the company said at the time that the problems did not affect the sterility of the components, and that patients who had received the recalled Trident components would not need to have them replaced.

However, in a 2007 warning letter, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) stated that the same Trident components had been the subject of many complaints:

"Specifically, your firm received continual complaints from January of 2005 through May of 2007 concerning your Trident Hemispherical and Trident PSL cups that have failed to function and concerning hip implant components that have poor fixation. In some instances, these problems have required revision surgeries."

According to the letter, which was issued after an inspection of the company's Mahwah, New Jersey manufacturing facility, Stryker failed to adequately address the problems.
