Stryker Hip Replacement Recall -- What are the Symptoms of a Failed Hip Replacement?

stryker hip replacement recall

According to the FDA, symptoms of a failed metal-on-metal hip implant may include hip pain, groin pain, numbness, changes in the patient's ability to walk and swelling. Of course, symptoms of toxicity in the blood stream may not be obvious to the patient. To be safe, any unexplained changes in your health should be evaluated by your physician and be sure to remind the physician that you have a metal-on-metal hip implant.

The FDA has issued a warning that certain types of patients have an increased risk of device wear or adverse local tissue reaction (ALTR) and should follow-up more frequently with their surgeon or health care provider:

  • Patients with suspected metal sensitivity (for example, nickel, cobalt, chromium)
  • Patients with high levels of physical activity
  • Patients who are morbidly overweight
  • Patients with compromised or suppressed immune systems
  • Patients who have undergone hip replacement on both sides (bilateral)
  • Patients who are receiving large doses of corticosteroids
  • Female patients
  • Patients with resurfacing systems with small femoral heads (less or equal to 44 mm)
