A Lessor Known Stryker Recall In Illinois: The Stryker Triathlon Knee Cutting Guide
In early 2013 comma as much of the medical device industry was focused on the epidemic of metal-on-metal hips, Stryker Orthopedics in conjunction with the FDA recalled its Shape Match cutting guide which was included in the installation of the Triathlon Knee System. This recall covered all lot numbers of the Cutting Guide produced between May of 2011 to November of 2012. It is important to keep in mind that the Stryker shape match recall was small in comparison to the more well-known Stryker metal-on-metal hip recall. While there were fewer incidences of failure, the shape match cutting guide cost serious injuries to patients including chronic pain, knee fracture, Knee instability, revision surgery, and permanent decreased mobility. Koester and Bradley has reason to believe that Stryker Triathlon knees using the Shape Match cutting guide were implanted in Central Illinois and across the Midwest. Individuals who received a Stryker knee implant between 2011 and early 2013, and are experiencing problems, are well advised their positions as well as an experienced who handles medical device.
