New York, NY (PRWEB) September 13, 2012
Additional Stryker hip recall lawsuits have been filed against Stryker Orthopaedics, manufacturer of the recalled Rejuvenate and ABG II modular-neck hip stems, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. The South Florida Sun Sentinel reported on seven recently filed lawsuits against the medical device manufacturer over the recalled devices.* According to the news report, the seven new lawsuits currently pending against the company were filed in New Jersey Superior Court and similarly allege that the company negligently tested, manufactured, distributed and sold its defective Rejuvenate System. The seven new plaintiffs had to undergo revision surgery to remove the devices. The South Florida Sun Sentinel also noted that a large number of patients who received the Rejuvenate have suffered metal toxicity.
“We believe this is just the beginning of litigation against Stryker. Many recipients of the recalled Stryker implants have experienced symptoms of hip implant failure yet still don’t even know that their failing implant was recalled. As more patients are notified of the recall, we are hopeful they will take steps to protect their legal rights. We continue to receive calls from Stryker hip implant recipients on an almost daily basis,” said 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 case reviews to individuals who received either a Stryker Rejuvenate or ABG II modular-neck stem hip implant and experienced side effects.
Stryker Hip Recall Lawsuits Likely To Rise
In July 2012, Stryker Orthopaedics recalled its Rejuvenate and ABG II modular-neck hip stems – components used in many of the company’s hip implant systems. Approximately 20,000 of the recalled devices were sold in the United States. According to the company, the recall was initiated due to elevated risks of “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.”**
