We are seeing the same types of injuries in both our Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II clients as we are in those with the Wright Profemur stem.
New York, New York (PRWEB) May 02, 2013
Bernstein Liebhard LLP is now evaluating Wright hip lawsuits on behalf of recipients of Wright Conserve hip replacements, as well as the Wright Profemur Total Hip Replacement System. According to Seeking Alpha.com, Wright Medical Group’s Chief Financial Officer reported earlier this week that the company continues to face liabilities involving fractures of the titanium modular necks in recipients of the Wright Profemur hip replacement.* Court records also indicate the company is named in dozens of lawsuits involving certain metal-on-metal Conserve hip implants in a multidistrict litigation now underway in U.S. District Court, Northern District of Georgia. (In re: Wright Medical Technology, Inc., Conserve Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2329)
“It is particularly interesting that the company has noted that sales of its Profemur modular stem product may be impacted by the recall of the Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II stems, similar modular stem products.** Notably, we are seeing the same types of injuries in both our Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II clients as we are in those with the Wright Profemur stem,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing the victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is actively filing Wright hip lawsuits, and continues to offer free legal evaluations to individuals who suffered serious complications, allegedly due to Wright Conserve and Profemur hip replacements.
Wright Hip Lawsuits
Court records indicate that at least 40 Wright hip lawsuits involving the Wright Conserve Total Hip Implant System, Conserve Total A-Class Advanced Metal Hip Implant System, and the Conserve Resurfacing System are pending in the Northern District of Georgia. Wright Medical Group has also reported on April 30th that additional Conserve hip replacement lawsuits have also been filed in state court in California, and a number of those complaints have been consolidated for pretrial handling pursuant to procedures of California State Judicial Counsel Coordinated Proceedings. All of the pending Wright Conserve lawsuits allege use of the products resulted in the accumulation of excessive metal ions in recipients, many of whom were forced to undergo revision surgery.**
Court records also indicate that a settlement in a Wright hip lawsuit involving a Profemur hip replacement was reached late last month, just days before the case was scheduled to go to trial in California federal court. According to a Joint Notice of Settlement filed with the U.S. District Court, Northern District of California, on March 20th, Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers. has scheduled a compliance hearing for May 17th. (Tucker, et ux. v. Wright Medical Technology, Inc., et al., No. 4:11-cv-03086)
According to Bloomberg.com, Wright Profemur hip replacement has a modular design similar to the Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II hip stems that were the subject of a recall in July 2012. Wright Medical Group has disclosed that there is a possibility that the Stryker hip recall might impact sales of the Profemur products. ***
