Help and information about Stryker Hip Replacement recalls.

Stryker Hip Replacement Problems

Stryker Corporation issued a voluntary recall of the Stryker Rejuvenate and Stryker ABG II modular hip replacement systems after stating that the metal-on-metal hip devices posed an increased risk for problems including:

  • Fretting and corrosion: deterioration of the hip implant caused by grinding of the metal components
  • Metallosis: metal debris loosen and detach from the hip devices over time causing metal poisoning
  • Osteolysis: weakening of bone around the implant
  • Loosening: Stryker implant fails to remain in the position where it was attached during surgery
  • Dislocation: separation of two parts of the hip replacement device
  • Fractures: broken bones occurring around the site of the implant

Problems with Stryker Hip ReplacementsMany patients filing Stryker hip lawsuits have had to undergo revision surgery after experiencing pain, swelling and discomfort caused by their hip implant. Stryker Corporation issued a U.S. recall of the Stryker Rejuvenate and Stryker ABG II modular hip systems in July 2012. The Stryker hip replacements were recalled in Canada in May 2012

The  Stryker Rejuvenate and Stryker ABG hip replacement systems were submitted through the Food and Drug Administration’s 510(k) program, which allows manufacturers to bypass clinical trials if their device is substantially similar to a device was already approved by the FDA.
