Many individuals who required knee joint replacement due to a variety of medical disorders or trauma had chosen the Stryker Triathlon Total Knee System (STTKS). Manufactured and aggressively promoted by Stryker, the STTKS is advertised as a superior knee joint replacement device that offers its users optimal and pain-free mobility. The knee joint implant also promises long-term or lifetime durability, a highly desirable feature that would seem to make the STTKS the clearly superior choice.
Unfortunately, for a number of knee replacement patients, the Stryker knee does not provide the performance touted by its maker. Numerous patient complaints about the knee joint implant include: serious to severe and persistent pain; knee joint loosening and instability; impaired mobility; total failure or fractures of the artificial joint; misalignment, and the need for revisionist replacement surgery followed by months of painful physical rehabilitation.
Surgeons and Stryker alike agree that the problems with the STTKS stem from an associated product, the Stryker ShapeMatch Cutting Guide. Each knee joint device comes with a highly individualized, computer generated template that is intended to instruct the surgeon on optimal bone cutting procedures that are MRI scan-tailored for each patient. It seems that serious flaws in the cutting guide are responsible for the improper sawing and shaping of bones that have caused the wide variety of STTKS problems.
As a result, the Stryker ShapeMatch Cutting Guide had been recalled by the company in 2013. Today, numerous and nationwide lawsuits allege that Stryker knew or should have known about its cutting guide defects, but negligently failed to inform or warn doctors and their patients about their template’s defects.
