Stryker Hip Recall
Court records indicate that more than 600 Stryker hip lawsuits filed in the wake of the Rejuvenate and ABG II recall are now pending in courts throughout the U.S. This includes the 380 that have been filed in New Jersey. (In Re Stryker Rejuvenate Hip Stem and the ABG II Modular Hip Stem Litigation, No. 296) Another 290 such lawsuits are pending in a federal multidistrict litigation underway in U.S. District Court, District of Minnesota. (In re: Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2441) The lawsuits allege that recipients of Rejuvenate and ABG II hip stems suffered serious complications, including metallosis and significant metal and bone loss, due to toxic metal ions shed from the fretting and corrosion of the components.
The Stryker hip recall was announced in July 2012, after an unexpectedly high number of patients experienced complications, including pain, swelling, and adverse local tissue reactions, due to fretting and corrosion at the modular-neck junction. Stryker has advised all recipients of Rejuvenate and ABG II hip stems to undergo blood tests for elevated metal ion levels, as well as cross sectional imaging, regardless of their symptoms. *
Rejuvenate and ABG II hip stem recipients may be eligible to file a Stryker hip lawsuit if they suffered complications that may be associated with fretting and corrosion of the components.
