Stryker issued the recall of its metal hip implants in July 2012 due to reports of complications with the devices.
New York, NY (PRWEB) September 16, 2012
A Stryker hip recall website providing information and updates on Stryker hip side effects stemming from the recalled Rejuvenate and ABG II modular-neck stem components has been launched by Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing clients who have been injured by the recalled modular-neck hip stem components. Stryker issued the recall of its metal hip implants in July 2012 due to reports of complications with the devices. While the Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II modular-neck hip stems can be used as a component of either metal or ceramic hip implants, the metal-on-metal modular junction can fret or corrode, which may cause toxic metal debris to loosen and enter the bloodstream. As a result, Stryker hip side effects can manifest resulting in pain, inflammation, swelling, tissue damage, and even metallosis. Patients may have to undergo painful and complex revision surgery to remove the devices.
Stryker Hip Recall Lawsuits Expected To Mount
Given that approximately 20,000 of the devices subject to the recall were sold in the United States, the Stryker hip lawyers at Bernstein Liebhard LLP are 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. Some patients may have received letters from their doctors notifying them of the Stryker hip recall. The Firm encourages individuals who believe they may have a Stryker Rejuvenate or ABG II hip implant to contact a Stryker hip lawyer to learn how to best protect their legal rights.
In addition to providing a wealth of information related to the recall on the new website, the lawyers at Bernstein Liebhard LLP are currently evaluating potential Stryker hip recall lawsuit claims.
