Stryker Stricken Again: Another Hip Implant Lawsuit Filed

In a recent lawsuit against Stryker Orthopaedics filed by a Tennessee man, he claims that he suffered serious injuries following implantation of Stryker’s Accolade TMZF hip stem and LFIT anatomic CoCr V40 femoral head. Pending in the District of Massachusetts, the alleged side-effects from the metal-on-metal implant mirror those of many other plaintiffs with similar claims against the medical device manufacturer—including metallosis, permanent tissue damage, and painful device removal surgery. Among other claims, the plaintiff alleges that Stryker was negligent in the design of the device and that the company failed to warn of the associated risks.

Essure Sales Banned Outside the U.S.

Following thousands of complaints lodged against Bayer, maker of permanent contraceptive device Essure, the company has discontinued sales and marketing of Essure in every country outside the United States. Essure has caused many women to experience unwanted side-effects including migrations, perforation of the uterus or other organs, and chronic pain—many even needing surgery to remove the device. The dangers of Essure were made more evident in 2016 when the company added a black-box warning to Essure, the strongest warning, notifying doctors and patients of the problems associated with the implant.

Women Continue to Suffer Complications from Essure

I went from being a mum who was doing everything with her children, to a mum that was stuck in bed unable to move without pain, at some points being suicidal,” recalls Laura Linkson, mother of three, who suffered severe complications from permanent contraceptive device Essure. Laura was implanted with the device, a small flexible coil made of nickel and polyester fibers inserted into the fallopian tubes, in 2013. Similarly, Victoria Dethier also experienced severe side-effects from Essure and underwent a hysterectomy to remove the device after just three years. “There were moments where I couldn’t get out of bed I was in so much pain,” she recalls.

Thousands of women implanted with the Essure have reported debilitating complications—many also claiming they were unaware of the risks the device may pose.
