Wright Hip Lawsuits
All of the Wright hip lawsuits pending in the Northern District of Georgia allege use of the Wright Conserve Total Hip Implant System, Conserve Total A-Class Advanced Metal Hip Implant System, and the Conserve Resurfacing System resulted in the accumulation of excessive metal ions in recipients, many of whom were forced to undergo revision surgery. In a regulatory filing dated April 30th, Wright Medical Group reported that additional Conserve hip replacement lawsuits had been filed in state court in California, a number of which have been consolidated for pretrial handling pursuant to procedures of California State Judicial Counsel Coordinated Proceedings.*
According to a Joint Notice of Settlement filed with the U.S. District Court, Northern District of California, on March 20th, a settlement has been reached in one lawsuit involving the Wright Profemur hip replacement. (Tucker, et ux. v. Wright Medical Technology, Inc., et al., No. 4:11-cv-03086) In its April 30th filing, Wright Medical warned that last year’s Stryker hip recall for Rejuvenate and ABG II hip stems could potentially affect sales of its Profemur modular-neck stems. The Company noted that the Stryker recall has increased industry focus on the safety of cobalt chrome modular neck products, such as the Profemur hips.*
