Stryker Accolade Hip Device
If you or a loved one has been implanted with a Stryker Accolade Stem, you may be eligible for a legal claim. The Accolade femoral hip component is a one-piece implant made of a proprietary blend of titanium and other metals. When paired with a larger Cobalt and Chromium femoral head, there becomes a metal-on-metal hip implant system. Recently, there has been concern over the potential for fretting, corrosion, and generation of particulate debris at this junction. Products of this corrosion and ions that are released into the surrounding region and can eventually be dispersed throughout the body in the bloodstream. This can lead to pain, adverse tissue reactions, pseudotumors, and osteolysis. There have also been reports of dissociation of the femoral heads.
