Stryker Tritanium Background
Stryker’s Tritanium Acetabular Cups haven been used during total hip replacement procedures since 2008. However, two recent studies in prominent medical journals raise concerns that Tritanium cups may fail by coming loose and requiring the patient to undergo a revision surgery. A 2017 study published in The Journal of Arthroplasty found that over one-third of the Tritanium cups had radioluncency. In 2018, a study published in Arthroplasty Today also reported on a number of Tritanium cups that came loose, and called for an examination into the safety of the Tritanium primary cup. Loosening of the Tritanium cup can cause significant pain and other complications, including, the need for corrective surgeries.
