Stryker Artificial Hip Recall Attorneys | Romanucci & Blandin
A voluntary recall was issued by Stryker for its Rejuvenate and ABG II modular-neck stems. The FDA and healthcare professionals have been notified of this recall, and patients who received an ABG II or Rejuvenate hip should contact their surgeon immediately. Some patients may need to have a hip revision surgery if they have developed an adverse local tissue reaction or if they suffer from ongoing pain. In a revision surgery, the metal hip needs to be replaced. This surgery can be very difficult since the hip implant’s components are put deep into the patient’s femur. Unfortunately, in some cases, the femur can actually fracture when the hardware is removed.
Faulty Stryker hip implants may corrode. The implants are made from Cobalt and Chromium, which are both heavy metal compounds. When there is failure in a device, these metal compounds may release metal ions and metal fragments into the blood stream or surrounding tissue which can cause pain or tissue inflammation. The metal ions and metal fragments can cause tissue destruction is they have broken off into the tissue.
