MAHWAH, N.J., May 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Stryker Orthopaedics launched today the first of its three part video series "Road Trip to a Healthier Lifestyle," featuring brand ambassadors Pro Football Hall of Famer, Jerome Bettis and PGA TOUR Professional and GetAroundKnee® recipient, Fred Funk as they take on fitness classes in Miami for the first time.1 To follow the series go to www.StrykerChallenge.com About Stryker Stryker is one of the world's leading medical technology companies and, together with our customers, we are driven to make healthcare better. The Company offers a diverse array of innovative products and services in Orthopaedics, Medical and Surgical, and Neurotechnology and Spine that help improve patient and hospital outcomes. Stryker is active in over 100 countries around the world.


The lawsuits coordinated in New Jersey State Court and in the District of Massachusetts allege hip implants designed and manufactured by Stryker Orthopaedics are defective.  According to the plaintiffs, the Stryker LFit V40 femoral head, a component of Stryker's hip implant that fits into the hip socket and is attached to the femoral stem, has been plagued with numerous corrosion related problems.  Many of the plaintiffs report adverse tissue reactions and spontaneous dissociation, which requires extensive surgery to repair.  Plaintiffs suffer such injuries as severe pain, inflammation, metallosis, joint instability, dislocation, broken bones in the area of the implant, leg length discrepancy and loss of mobility.  The Stryker LFit V40 was recalled in August 2016. Mr. McGlamry and Mr. Blakely's appointments to the respective state court MCL and federal court MDL provide a unique opportunity for Pope McGlamry, P.C., to oversee and manage parallel litigation.  Moreover, as Georgia lawyers, their appointments underscore Georgia as a jurisdiction where large scale coordinated litigation can be competently carried out.  Unlike states such as California and New York, Georgia has not historically been a hub for MDLs and other coordinated litigation.  However, as the JPML makes a concerted effort to broaden the roster of federal judges with experience managing MDL dockets, an increasing number of MDLs are being sent to Georgia, and Georgia lawyers are being called upon by courts to serve in leadership roles.  For example, U.S. District Judge Richard Story of the Northern District of Georgia, recently became the transferee judge in In Re: Ethicon Physiomesh Flexible Composite Hernia Mesh, and U.S. District Judge William Duffey presided over In Re: Wright Medical Technology, Inc., Conserve Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation.  Mr. McGlamry is Co-Lead Counsel in In Re: Wright Medical Technology, Inc., Conserve Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation, and helped negotiate a $240 million dollar settlement agreement last year. Mr. McGlamry expressed his eagerness to serve as a member of the Plaintiffs' Executive Committee in New Jersey State Court stating, "I hope with this appointment, I can help obtain justice for the victims and their families."  Mr. Blakely added that he takes the appointment by Judge Talwani very seriously stating, "I'm honored to be chosen by Judge Talwani to help lead this important litigation." Both Mr. McGlamry and Mr. Blakely have considerable experience with cases involving defective medical devices, including previous lawsuits against Stryker.  Pope McGlamry is a nationwide civil trial law firm that specializes in the handling of significant business fraud and commercial tort cases, often involving extensive damages; contract disputes; business to business litigation; cases of catastrophic injury and wrongful death involving issues related to automotive and general products liability; car, truck, and construction accidents; consumer litigation, including deceptive trade practices; insurance coverage litigation and premises liability cases.

A group of 25 volunteers from Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Arkansas, and Tennessee completed a three-armed medical mission trip to Nicaragua as part of the Brandon Kirk Sims Foundation Charity (BKS Foundation) in July 2017. Houston-based Orthopaedic Surgeon, Dr. Michael George and his surgical team performed 16 total knee replacements in 3.5 days at the hospital in Jinotepe, Nicaragua. In addition to Dr. George, the surgical team consisted of nurse anesthetists, operating room nurses, surgical technicians, a physician assistant and an equipment representative. "We wanted to assemble a diverse group of unique individuals from various backgrounds with specific talents channeled toward a common goal of helping others. We were able to treat the patients in need and also provide education for the Nicaraguan Orthopaedic Surgeons. The surgical team did an unbelievable job of overcoming any limitations of the facilities and environment to provide the same high quality care that we give our patients at home” stated Dr. George The knee replacement implants and surgical instruments were donated by the mission trip's flagship sponsor, Stryker Orthopaedics, while other supplies and funding were donated by Capital One Bank, BBraun Medical, Cardinal Health, MAP International, Americares Organization, Medical Bridges, West Monroe Endoscopy Center, Franklin Medical Center, Grace Hospice Foundation, Jimmy Coughran MD Medical Company, TOPS Surgical Specialty Hospital, and Houston Northwest Medical Center as well as various other sponsors and individual donors. Blaise Sims, a nurse anesthetist and director of the BKS Foundation said, "We are humbled by the graciousness and generosity of Stryker Orthopaedics, our sponsorship organizations, and our individual donors. This mission would not have been possible without their support. Its truly remarkable to see what amazing things can happen when people and organizations come together for one unified charitable cause." The BKS Foundation group also had a construction crew that built three houses for local villagers and a mission arm that visited local children and a shelter for abused women. The mission trip was coordinated through a charity organization named Nicaraguan Christian Outreach, based in Louisiana. NCO provided housing, food and translators for the team from BKS.  “Everyone on the team used their individual skills and talents to contribute to the team in their own special ways," said Sims. He and his family founded the charity in honor of his disabled older brother, Brandon, in order to help disadvantaged people in a variety of situations in the US and abroad. “Our goal is to provide for those who can not provide for themselves. Fortunately we were blessed with a dedicated and selfless group of volunteers to make an impact on this disadvantaged group in Nicaragua.” Sims and the BKS team plan on organizing additional future mission trips to Nicaragua and other Central American communities in need. The trip was documented by the photography/videography team of Ben and Abbey Boutwell of Nashville, TN.

With knee replacement surgeries becoming increasingly popular among active adults whose joints have been damaged by osteoarthritis comes a parallel surge in robotic-assisted surgeries, which are proving to be more precise and usually offer a quicker recovery, according orthopaedic surgeon Kevin D. Plancher, MD, founder of Plancher Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine. Nearly 700,000 people ages 45 and up undergo knee replacement surgery each year, according to the National Center for Health Statistics. These surgeries are primarily used to treat those whose knee joints have degenerated due to osteoarthritis, the surgery – whether a partial or total joint replacement – can be done in two ways: conventionally, which relies on the surgeon’s visual assessment of the knee and direct manipulation; or robotically, which uses CT imaging and a robotic arm to assist the surgeon with precise measurements. In the United States, the Food and Drug Administration has approved three robotic systems for knee replacement. Stryker Orthopaedics, a global leader in medical technology that manufactures prosthetic knee joints, acquired Mako Surgical Corp. in 2013. The Stryker/Mako system has used their robotic arm-assisted surgery for more than 50,000 partial knee replacements, according to 2016 research in the American Journal of Orthopaedics. “The Stryker/Mako robotic system is a great example of how technology is transforming how knee replacement surgeries are done,” Dr. Plancher says. “I’m excited to be able to offer my patients this cutting-edge option to help them resume their active lives hopefully without chronic pain as soon as possible.” How is robotic knee replacement performed? Patients tend to have many questions about how robotic surgery is performed, Dr. Plancher notes. The most common question asked is if a robot is performing the patient’s surgery. The resounding answer to that is no. Despite the name, a human surgeon is very much in charge of the procedure. So, how is robotic knee replacement carried out? Dr. Plancher describes the steps: 1. First, a CT scan, which is a type of special x-ray, of the patient’s knee is used to generate a 3-D virtual model of their specific anatomy. This model is loaded into the Stryker/Mako software and the surgeon uses it to personalize the surgical plan. 2. In the operating room itself, the surgeon uses the robotic arm to assist the surgery, guiding it within the precise boundaries defined by the surgical plan. The robotic surgical tools resurface the damaged part of the knee. 3. The robotic system allows the surgeon to make changes as needed based on what is visualized inside the knee. 4. The surgeon places metal components on the ends of the thighbone and tibia bone (below the kneecap), cementing them in place. A plastic insert is then placed between the metal components to enable smooth knee movement. “We’re simply taking advantage of technology to assist us in resurfacing the bones and individualize treatment to a patient’s own knee anatomy,” explains Dr. Plancher, also a Clinical Professor in Orthopaedics at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York. “Robotic surgery helps to tightly control factors such as lower leg alignment, soft tissue balance and other variables that all contribute to how successful the surgery is overall,” says Dr. Plancher, who lectures globally on issues related to orthopaedic procedures and sports injury management. “Research is making an attempt to improve accuracy through robotic assisted knee replacement in the hope of improving the longevity of the prosthesis.” Kevin D. Plancher, MD, is a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon and the founder of Plancher Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine.

It is difficult for surgeons to make the decision on which design or material to use given the different options available. Marketing claims and direct-to-consumer advertising certainly complicate this further. One company may claim a higher percentage of wear reduction with their bearing surfaces compared with those of another manufacturer. If the percentage of wear reduction is lower, it is unclear as to whether this creates a more effective technology for reducing wear in the clinical situation. The relative contribution and relationship of design and materials to wear performance must be considered before making that important judgment. To examine the overall influence of implant design on wear reduction, a knee simulator study was undertaken. This simulator study compared the Oxinium Genesis II system with the Triathlon Conventional and Triathlon X3 knee systems under physiologic stair-climb loading and motion profiles. This allows a similar comparison of material effect within one design but also a global comparison across designs. Test results show the Triathlon Conventional and Triathlon X3 knee systems have superior wear resistance compared with that of the Genesis II Oxinium system under stair-climbing simulation. This finding indicates that implant design plays a more significant role in knee wear reduction than material. Although material technology may improve a given knee system's ability to wear, design geometry has a first-order effect and should be addressed before materials. This study represents an effort to differentiate design effect from two different approaches to material enhancement. The results of this study support the predominance of design in knee replacement wear performance. Ultimately, only clinical evidence such as published studies or outcomes reported in the available joint registries will establish whether any material or design can achieve a 30-year outcome.

SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwired - Nov 22, 2016) -  Amedica Corporation ( : AMDA), a manufacturer of silicon nitride implants in the spine market is pleased to announce the appointment of Dana Lyons as Vice President of Sales and Marketing. Mr. Lyons will lead the effort to increase the adoption of silicon nitride implants in the spinal fusion market and deliver revenue growth. He brings over 27 years of sales and sales management experience in the medical device industry. Mr. Lyons joins Amedica after holding multiple sales management and sales leadership positions with Stryker Orthopaedics, Zimmer Spine, and Zimmer Biomet Spine. During his tenure as Sales Vice President with Zimmer Spine and in conjunction with the Zimmer Spine executive leadership team, Zimmer Spine delivered 5 consecutive quarters of growth during 2014-2015. After the Zimmer and Biomet merger in June of 2015, Mr. Lyons successfully integrated the sales organizations of both Zimmer Spine and Biomet Spine in the Central Region of the United States. Mr. Lyons said: "I am excited to join Amedica at a critical turn-around stage, when the spine market is looking for a new material platform. We can drive the adoption of silicon nitride in the spinal fusion market, where it is the perfect solution for relevant clinical concerns. The unique material attributes of silicon nitride create an ideal choice for spinal fusion surgery." The FDA also notified the company that the new pedicle screw system, Taurus, has been cleared for commercialization. The company is on target for surgical implantation and a full market launch of the Taurus system by the end of the year. Mr. Lyons will execute a strategy for expanded introduction of new spine products, such as the lateral lumbar fusion devices and the Taurus pedicle screw system. "Approval of our metals product portfolio is immediately relevant, and our new sales team will work toward proper positioning of this system, to leverage surgeon interest and drive revenue growth," said Dr. Bal. B. Sonny Bal, MD, MBA, JD, PhD; the CEO and President of Amedica Corporation added: "Amedica is building a top-tier sales team with skilled veterans from the spine industry, such as Mr. Lyons. Going forward, our focus is on driving sales, surgeon engagement, and data collection to validate the unparalleled volume of basic material science data that we have already published. Surgeon intrigue about our material, and a market need for clinical advantages that only our material can deliver, combine to make spine an attractive growth opportunity. As part of the new sales team, I will focus on driving clinical trials, surgeon relations, and publishing clinical data to impact our revenue growth." Separately, the company has been notified that the FDA did not clear its 510(k) premarket application to commercialize Valeo C+CsC, a composite spinal fusion device, even though the device is marketed in Europe with successful outcomes. "While the FDA reluctance to clear our composite silicon nitride device that incorporates the world's first structural porous bioceramic under the 510(k) program is disappointing, we are working with the FDA to examine other pathways to introduce this proprietary technology to the U.S. market as expeditiously as possible," said Dr. Bal. About Amedica Corporation Amedica is focused on the development and application of interbody implants manufactured with medical-grade silicon nitride ceramic. Amedica markets spinal fusion products and is developing a new generation of wear- and corrosion-resistant implant components for hip and knee arthroplasty as well as dental applications.

(PRLEAP.COM) Tampa, Florida. – Saunders & Walker P.A., a National Consumer Justice Law Firm, announces a defective product lawsuit against Howmedica Osteonics Corp., also known as Stryker Orthopaedics. The suit alleges that Stryker's hip replacement devices caused severe and permanent physical injuries to Francis T. Hassett after he was implanted with them during bilateral hip implant surgeries. Stryker was served with the lawsuit on February 3, 2017.Francis T. Hassett, who was suffering from osteoarthritis, underwent right hip replacement surgery in 2009 and left hip replacement surgery in 2011. Doctors implanted Stryker's Accolade TMZF® Hip Stem and LFIT Anatomic V40 Femoral Head into both of Mr. Hassett's hips. By 2016, he was forced to undergo additional hip surgeries to remove the bad hips after it was found that Stryker's products had corroded and released metal ions into his body. The Stryker hips caused adverse local tissue reaction known as ALVAL and chromium and cobalt metal toxicity.The company not only designed and manufactured its hip replacement prosthesis in a substandard manner but knowingly withheld crucial information from both the medical community and the public. Scientists have long known that the combination of dissimilar metals causes corrosion and poses a danger to patients. In spite of that, Stryker falsely claimed that its unique device could resist corrosion and fretting. The lawsuit argues that the company's defective product, combined with misleading advertising, directly led to the plaintiff's injuries.Francis Hassett is not alone. Stryker's hip systems have harmed many patients, leading to product recalls and high revision surgery rates. Indeed, this most recent lawsuit is one of over 100 lawsuits filed against Stryker as a result of its defective hip systems. In light of the evidence, Saunders & Walker P.A. demands a trial by jury on behalf of Plaintiff Francis T. Hassett and his wife Kay Hassett.Anyone who wants to reference the Stryker Orthopaedics case can find it filed as Case 8:17-cv-00221-VMC-JSS in the United States District Court, Middle District of Florida, Tampa Division. Interested parties can also visit the Saunders & Walker P.A. website to learn more about our actions against the medical manufacturer. Those who have suffered injury as a result of Stryker's hip systems should call the law firm at 1-800-748-7115.
