Hip replacements or hip implants made by the Michigan-based company Stryker have come under increased scrutiny by attorneys, the FDA, and, of course, medical professionals. In 2008, Stryker voluntarily recalled a number of its hip replacement components, which originated from a factory in Mahwah, New Jersey.
There were a number of problems with the defective hip parts. The FDA had apparently been warning Stryker about defects in the manufacturing process for quite some time, and the recall had come after these problems had not been solved by Stryker.
There had been many complaints about these products and there had been instances of revision surgery being implemented to remove the defective medical devices from the bodies of patients. However, Stryker products have had significantly fewer problems than did DePuy hip implants or Smith & Nephew hip implants.
Furthermore, the manufacturing facilities were found to be very unsanitary and did not meet an acceptable standard of cleanliness. Unsanitary conditions in factories of medical products could potentially lead to infection.
The problems involved loosely fitting parts at the joints of the hip. The products that received the greatest scrutiny were the Trident PSL Acetabular Shells and the Hemispherical Acetabular Cups.
Because the defects with these devices were manifested in the manufacturing process rather than in the design process, Stryker is not necessarily liable for the possible injuries that might transpire. However, this is not to say that injured plaintiffs cannot take legal action to recover significant compensation. Specifically, Stryker might be liable for having insufficient oversight of its manufacturing facilities.
A Stryker class action lawsuit might arise if there have been enough injuries caused by this potentially defective product.
