Stryker recall over elbow implant problems

A medical device alert was issued in February this year. It stemmed from the Stryker recall where some patients could suffer with elbow implant problems.

We’re no strangers to helping people claim personal injury compensation when a medical implant goes wrong. Our lawyers are engaged in dozens of group and multi-party actions, some of which include medical implants that have left patients suffering with complications. In some cases, the need for revision surgery is bad enough, but the additional complications that can arise can also be severe too.

If you’re suffering with elbow implant problems, you should seek urgent medical attention. The problems could be related to an issue like the Stryker recall. Either way, our lawyers may be able to help you make a claim.

History of the Stryker recall

In November 2017, a Field Safety Notice (FSN) was issued in relation to elbow implant problems some patients may be suffering with. In February 2019, the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) issued the medical device alert.

Now, the implants are not to be implanted and are to be quarantined and returned to the manufacturer. Patients are to be advised about the problems, and any patient suffering with problems should see urgent medical help.
