Stryker AccuLIF Recall Attorneys in San Diego, CA
Have You Had Back Surgery with the Stryker Acculif PL or TL Cage?
If so, you may entitled to compensation if this particular Stryker Spine medical device has collapsed or needed to be redone because it collapsed after being implanted in your body.
In July 2016, The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reported that AccuLIF Posterior Lumber Expandable Interbody implant customers received an “Urgent Recall Letter and Product Accountability Form” from Stryker Spine recommending they undergo a routine radiographic/clinical post-operation evaluation. In addition, the letter stated that patients experiencing abnormal changes or near-onset symptoms after implant surgery should seek radiographic/clinical evaluation as soon as possible.

If you have suffered the collapse of an AccuLIF implant and required another surgery to replace the implant, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, pain and suffering and other damages.

What is the AccuLIF Interbody System?
When a degenerative disease or traumatic accident severely damages the spine, parts of the spine may need reconstructed so that the patient can walk, stand and move normally. The AccuLIF implant was supposed to employ concise placement and delivery with controlled expansion to help anatomically reconstruct the spine during a fusion procedure.
Once inserted, the implant may expand, using a process involving steps inside, so that the implant creates a monolithic, rigid structure. In addition, the AccuLIF implant was designed to reduce the risk of nerve interference and damage to endplates during fusion surgery.
Unfortunately, the AccuLIF Posterior Lumber Expandable Interbody implant is now under legal scrutiny due to defects effecting its ability to perform as expected. Patients of the AccuLIF implant have reported failures of the device to integrate properly with their spine, expansion deficiencies and having to undergo revision surgeries to remove and replace the implant.
This is not the first time Stryker has been sued for marketing defective products.
