Morris, King & Hodge, P.C., attorneys are investigating hip implant injury cases involving hip devices made by Stryker®. Stryker® Orthopaedics has voluntarily recalled its Rejuvenate modular and ABG II modular stem and neck hip implants. The recall was posted on the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) website on July 6, 2012. The implants were recalled in Canada earlier in 2012.
Stryker indicates that fretting and corrosion can occur within the devices, which can cause adverse tissue reactions and pain and swelling in certain individuals. Certain recipients of these implants may experience the dangerous effects of Metallosis, which is a buildup of metal debris in the body’s soft tissues. Hospitalization and painful corrective surgeries are sometimes necessary to alleviate pain and swelling caused by the affected Stryker implants.
