The Stryker hip components were recalled on July 6, 2012, due to a potential for fretting and corrosion at the modular-neck junction.
New York, NY (PRWEB) October 07, 2012
Its Stryker hip recall website has been revamped to provide consumers with the most up-to-date information on Stryker Orthopaedics’ recent recall of Rejuvenate and AGBII modular neck-stems, according to Bernstein Liebhard LLP. The Stryker hip components were recalled on July 6, 2012, due to a potential for fretting and corrosion at the modular-neck junction.*
“The revamp of the website will allow us to provide alleged victims of the Stryker hip recall with current news and updates regarding the recalled Rejuvenate and AGBII modular neck-stems, and keep them apprised of their legal options if they are considering filing a Stryker hip recall lawsuit,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing individuals in lawsuits against a variety of metal hip implant manufacturers. The firm is currently offering free and confidential Stryker hip recall lawsuit reviews to individuals who suffered serious complications, including metal poisoning and revision surgery, allegedly due to defective Rejuvenate and AGBII modular neck-stems.
Stryker Hip Recall Lawsuits
Stryker has warned in its recall notice that patients with the Rejuvenate or AGB II hip implant components may develop adverse local tissue reactions that could manifest with symptoms of pain and/or swelling.* According to a report from NorthJersey.com, least eight plaintiffs have filed suit in New Jersey Superior Court, Bergen County alleging Stryker negligently sold the Rejuvenate hip stem. The plaintiffs claim to have developed various alleged Stryker hip side effects, including metal poisoning, pseudo tumors, and infections, which led to revision surgery.** It is highly likely that many more patients will file similar Stryker hip recall lawsuits in the weeks and months to come, according to Bernstein Liebhard LLP.
