Stryker Eius Knee Investigation

THOMSON, ROGERS has been consulted by a 47 year old woman who recently underwent a left knee revision to her unicompartmental Stryker Eius knee system.

Stryker's Eius knee system was subject to a Type II recall by Health Canada on October 17, 2011. The reason for recall cited by Health Canada was: "Stryker was aware that the revision rates associated with the Eius knee system were higher than other similar devices."

Thomson, Rogers is investigating whether or not Stryker's Eius knee system was negligently designed, researched, developed, manufactured, sold and/or distributed in Canada.

Some medical reporting has linked Stryker's Eius knee system to failure by one or more of the following: femoral loosening, tibial loosening, disease progression, infection, malalignment, dislocation, instability and periprosthetic fracture. Failures like these may be accompanied by pain.
