Shocking Details of Stryker 3D-Printed Tritanium Implant Recall

Recent studies looking into the Stryker lumbar cage recall raise even more suspicions about Stryker’s product quality and business tactics.Stryker Corporation’s Howmedica Osteonics subsidiary issued a Class 2 recall November 2018 in regards to its 3D-printed Tritanium PL lumbar cage. To many’s surprise, the recall did NOT remove the lumbar cage from the market but only updated the Instructions For Use (IFU). The updated IFU resulted from reports of Tritanium PL cages crumbling and fracturing apart during and after implantation, causing the suffering of possibly hundreds of unsuspecting patients.
