Stryker Rejuvenate Recall
Hip Implant Victims / Rejuvenate Failure Attorney
Nadrich & Cohen are investigating Stryker Rejuvenate hip implant victims who have had implanted the Stryker Rejuvenate modular hip system. We are interviewing victims who have experienced failure of their Rejuvenate hip implants which may require revision surgery.
On July4th, 2012 Stryker Orthopedics announced a voluntary recall for the United States of particular Rejuvenate and ABG II hip implant models.
The reason for the recall was the increasing number of problems being identified with the hip system including metallosis (increase in blood levels of metallic debris adjacent to the implant), necrosis (death of surrounding tissues), osteolysis (death of bone cell due to impingement or interference of blood flow) and other side effects - all which require revision surgery.
Stryker stated in its recall “potential risks associated with fretting and corrosion at the modular neck junction” as the reason for its recall. The modular-neck stem implants recalled are not metal on metal hips. They have a metal femoral neck. The risk of modular-neck stems are that fretting and corrosion occurs when the stem and neck overlap. The result are metal ions migrating to the surrounding tissue. This is the same problem with the metal on metal hip implants.
The Rejuvenate hip is made from metal, ceramic and polyethylene. Unfortunately, it can release metal ions or metal debris into the body. We believe the cause of the defective design is the neck junction which could cause corrosion and fretting.
If you or your loved one had implanted in them a Stryker Rejuvenate hip system which is failing or causing intense pain, please contact Nadrich & Cohen today to discuss your legal rights. We will answer any questions you have. Our hip department can be reached by phone. You can also complete the intake questionnaire on the right.
If you or your loved one had implanted in them either the Stryker Rejuvenate or ABG II modular-neck stem components you should contact us to determine whether or not you have a right to a financial recovery.
