In June 2012, Stryker Corp. issued a nationwide recall for its Rejuvenate and ABG II Modular-Neck hip stems after they were linked to numerous reports of metallosis, necrosis, osteolysis, pain, and premature failure. These complications are thought to occur because the devices tend to break down after being implanted, and release toxic metal debris into the patient’s blood. Mississippi Stryker Hip Lawsuits may be an option for residents of the state who suffered serious injuries after receiving the Rejuvenate or ABG II Modular-Neck hip stems.

Stryker Hip Complications
Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II Modular Stem have been linked to the following complications:
- difficulty walking
- squeaky joints
- faulty components
- plant contamination
- local tissue damage
- high failure rates
- metallosis (the release of tiny metal particles into the bloodstream)
The complications linked to Stryker hips are similar to those caused by DePuy hip replacement devices, which were recalled by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in August 2010. However, while the DePuy hips involve a metal ball rubbing against a metal socket, the Stryker Rejuvenate devices involve a metal neck inside a metal stem. In Mississippi and elsewhere across the United States, lawyers are building cases against Stryker as a part of the metal on metal hip replacement litigation.
Stryker Corp. has stated that the complication rate associated with the Rejuvenate and ABG II Modular Stem is “extremely low.” The company decided to recall the devices based on data gathered since the products entered the market, saying it “may be predictive of a trend.” Stryker has advised recipients of its replacement hip components to contact the surgeon who implanted the device immediately. If you or a loved one has been injured by a Stryker Rejuvenate hip, the law offices of Schmidt & Clark, LLP, would like to hear from you. For More Information: Mississippi Stryker Hip Lawyer.
