Stryker ShapeMatch Cutting Guide Software

Description:

Stryker Orthopaedics, a Division of Stryker Corporation and Stryker Sales Corporation, released the Stryker ShapeMatch Cutting Guide, a single-use, disposable cutting guide that is used to assist surgeons with total knee replacement operations (arthroplasty). While Stryker ShapeMatch Cutting Guide is meant to aid in guiding the marking of the bone before cutting, software defects may have resulted in cutting guide ranges not cleared by the FDA. As a result, patients face serious health consequences including: joint instability, fracture, need for revision surgery, chronic pain, and mobility limitations.

The Stryker ShapeMatch Cutting Guide Litigation Group assists AAJ members handling these cases by providing them with crucial documents, expert recommendations, and trial strategies. Member benefits include a Group Document Library, list server, and meetings and education programs.

Background:

This Litigation Group was formed in October 2013.
