According to the Stryker hip recall notice issued in July 2012, the Rejuvenate and ABG II hip stems are prone to fretting and corrosion at the modular neck junction, which puts recipients at risk of pain, swelling, and adverse local tissue reactions. Earlier this year, Stryker advised all individuals affected by the Stryker Rejuvenate recall to undergo metal ion blood testing and imaging screenings, even if they are not experiencing problems with their hip. This advisory was issued after some Stryker hip replacement recall patients were found to have excessive amounts of metal in their blood, even though they experienced signs or symptoms that their artificial hip might be defective.
According to Becker’s ACS review, Stryker Corporation recently reported that it has so far spent $230 million on the Stryker Rejuvenate hip replacement recall. Court records also indicate the company has been named in at least 30 Stryker hip replacement recall lawsuits in federal courts. The U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) is scheduled to hear Oral Arguments on May 30th regarding the establishment of a multidistrict litigation in a single federal court for all federally-filed Stryker Rejuvenate hip replacement lawsuits.
