Increased Risk of Complications with Stryker Accolade


The Stryker Accolade is associated with an elevated rate of implant migration and loosening. There are clinic factors which contribute to the increased likelihood of complications and subsequent failure of the hips: aseptic loosening of the femoral component was associated with implant instability and micro motion (excessive motion at the implant-bone interface). Hip implant complications significantly affects patient function, results in hip implant failure and a need for revision surgery.
