I have a Stryker ceramic and titanium hip replacement and have had it since 10/2/03 I first noticed the squeak while making love, it worsened: and going up stairs is actually quite noisy. With one foot on a chair, raising my weight with the replaced hip, it sounds like a rusty gate hinge and emits a about a 2 octave range.
Here is the response I got from Stryker when I Emailed them … Read the Rest
The Stryker Trident® Ceramic Acetabular System is a ceramic-on-ceramic implant system used to replace the “ball and socket” joint of a hip when a total hip replacement is performed for patients suffering from arthritis or related conditions. Unlike conventional hip implants, the Trident® system utilizes alumina ceramic-on-ceramic surfaces rather than metal-on-plastic or metal-on-metal. Ceramic-on-ceramic components have demonstrated significantly lower wear versus the conventional metal-on-plastic or metal-on-metal systems in the laboratory; therefore, it is anticipated that … Read the Rest

Nine surgeons with 11 years and 1,100 ceramic-hip experience have never heard a squeak…
…What is more interesting is the severity and frequency of the squeaking. We have seven surgeons who have used the Accolade/Trident implant combination, and all seven have heard squeaking in their office. We have nine surgeons with more than 10.5 years experience with 1,100 hips with flush-mounted liners and none … Read the Rest
The ‘Silent™ Hip’ is designed for the young and active patient with arthritis of the hip. It is a relatively new procedure that has many potential advantages over standard hip replacements and resurfacing hip replacements.
The key feature of the ‘Silent™’ hip is the stem. The stem is the part of the hip that sits in the femur or thigh bone. Traditionally a stem sits in the shaft of the femur but in … Read the Rest
A CoCr modular neck provides for a strong neck construct. Fatigue testing has shown that the SMF Cobalt Chrome modular neck design exceeds the fatigue strength of the same neck design made out of titanium alloy by as much as 83% and a conventional titanium monolithic hip stem by as much as 18%.1
Utilizing radiosterometric analysis (RSA), the SMF system demonstrated stability consistent with the clincially successful SYNERGY* primary hip stem. Moreover, HHS … Read the Rest
