Hip Implant Fractures
Patients who use a Stryker Rejuvenate or Stryker ABG II hip replacement system may face an increased risk of fractures or broken bones caused by problems with the hip devices. Stryker Corporation recalled both hip devices in July 2012 after it was revealed that the Rejuvenate and ABG II hip replacements were significantly more likely to fail than other implants.
The recalled Stryker hip replacements are metal-on-metal hip implant devices. As they wear over time, the metal portion of the device may shed metal debris. This can cause tissue damage near the site of the hip implant, which can lead to broken bones and fractures.
If you or a loved one experienced broken bones or other problems after receiving a Stryker hip replacement, you may qualify for a lawsuit.
