On July 6, 2012, the New Jersey-based Stryker® Orthopedics medical device manufacturer recalled two hip implant components used in several of their total hip replacement systems.
The Stryker® hip replacement recall is due to reports of metal-on-metal hip replacement complications such as potential corrosion and fretting that may result in tissue swelling, pain, and metal poisoning. If you’re experiencing or have experienced any side effects, a Stryker® hip replacement recall lawyer at Ward Black Law can provide a free, confidential case evaluation.
The recalled Stryker® hip replacement implants include the Rejuvenate Modular and the ABG II modular-neck hip stems. Modular-neck stems gave surgeons an option to correct certain aspects of a patient’s anatomy. The hip stem is composed of a modular stem with a modular neck intended for cement-less, press-fit insertion and is designed for use with compatible femoral heads and related acetabular components. The voluntary Stryker® hip replacement recall by the manufacturer may be part of a widespread trend of metal-on-metal hip implant injuries.
People who have hip implants but don’t know which brand or model should ask their doctor’s office which company manufactured their implants. This information should be available from either your surgeon’s office or the hospital where you had the procedure. According to the Stryker® FAQ web page, a surgeon can tell who received a Rejuvenate Modular or ABG II modular-neck hip stem. Please revisit this site to receive periodic hip recall updates Stryker® Hip implants and those of other manufacturers.
Currently, there are hundreds of metal-on-metal hip implant lawsuits being filed in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Arizona and across the nation for other hip recalls. Anyone suffering from pain, limping, urinary irregularities, vision problems, numbness, fatigue, and general malaise that have developed after receiving a hip implant may be eligible to file a Stryker recall claim to seek compensated for medical expenses, loss of income and pain and suffering.
Total hip replacement systems are indicated for non-inflammatory degenerative joint disease, including osteoarthritis and avascular necrosis, rheumatoid arthritis, correction of functional deformity, revision procedures where other treatments and/or devices have failed, and the unmanageable treatment of femoral neck and bone-protruding fractures.
