Stryker Orthopedics last month issued a recall of its Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II modular-neck hip stems due to increase risks associated with potential injuries.
These risks include the potential for fretting and/or corrosion at or about the modular-neck junction. The risk of injury includes tissue damage, pain and swelling, tbone loss, soft tissue damage, and other complications. In some cases, revision surgery may be required.
Unlike typical hip implant systems, which include a one-piece neck and stem, Stryker’s Rejuvenate and ABG II systems include several mix-and-match neck and stem components.
The recall of the two systems stems from serious post-implant side effects, including loosening of the implant and the release of toxic metals into patients — complications that could lead to a number of lawsuits against Stryker.
If you or someone you know has experienced pain, swelling or injury due after implantation of Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II, contact the attorneys of Sheller, P.C. at 888-883-2299, or write email@example.com.
