Minneapolis, Minnesota (PRWEB) August 09, 2012
Stryker hip recall attorneys at Meshbesher & Spence are handling claims involving the Stryker Orthopaedics Rejuvenate Modular Hip System. Individuals with this medical device are at risk for long term complications. These Stryker implants, along with other metal-on-metal hip implants such as the DePuy ASR, have been associated with an increased risk of metallosis, pseudotumors, hip implant failure and other health issues.
The ABG II hip systems was launched in November 2009. The Rejuvenate hip replacement system was released in early 2010, and is one of Stryker’s most popular joint replacement devices. In July of 2012, Stryker Howmedica Corporation, a leading manufacturer of hip implant products, announced a voluntary recall of its Rejuvenate and ABG II hip implants.
According to the Stryker website:
“This voluntary recall was initiated due to the potential risks associated with modular-neck stems. These risks include the potential for fretting and/or corrosion at or about the modular-neck junction, which may result in adverse local tissue reactions manifesting with pain and/or swelling.”
