Stryker Orthopedics expanded its hip implant safety notification by recalling eight products using LFIT Anatomic CoCr V40 Femoral Heads manufactured before March 4, 2011.

Stryker received a higher than expected number of femoral head/hip stem dissociation complaints for certain sizes of the LFIT V40 Femoral Heads.

Hospitals and surgeons are required to inform product users of the notification and forward the notice to everyone who needs to be aware in their organization. Providers and Stryker branches are not required to return the product as part of the notification.
