Stryker Knee Implant Recall
The MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency) released a warning in 2008 in regard to Stryker Orthopaedics Kinemax Plus Revision TS Tibial inserts. The document identified this Stryker product as having a risk of becoming loose and higher risk of fracturing due to manufacturer error. The warning also requested that all surgeons stop implanting the affected devices and return the defected knee implants to the manufacturer. Stryker issued a recall of this product line soon after.
