Stryker knee implants recalled


Stryker is recalling 143 units of its Triathlon total knee system, according to a March 6 notice from the FDA.

The recalls were initiated because of issues affecting the inner blister and outside sterile blisters of the implant packaging, according to the FDA. Notifications dated Feb. 6 were sent out to facilities asking to return recalled devices to Stryker's Mahwah, N.J., location.

The Triathlon total knee system has been implanted in more than 3 million patients worldwide and is compatible with the Mako robot, according to Stryker's website.
