Smith & Nephew has recalled its Modular SMF and Modular Redapt hip implants due to an unprecedented complaint and adverse event trend with the modular necks used in the devices.

Surgeons should monitor patients implanted with the Modular SMF and Modular Redapt hips for pain, swelling, limited mobility and enlarged bursa.

The recall does not include the Monolithic SMF and Monolithic Redapt implants, the company said. — Cynthia Jessup
