Stryker Hip Studies
Studies have linked the Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II hip replacements to severe complications including fretting, corrosion and metal poisoning. Both Stryker hip replacements were recalled in 2012.
A study published in the May 2013 edition of the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery evaluated case studies of 12 Stryker hip implants. Throughout the study, all of the patients demonstrated elevated levels of chromium, cobalt and titanium in their blood, as well as local soft tissue destruction with visible corrosion.
Elevated levels of chromium, cobalt and titanium in the bloodstream can result in metallosis, a type of metal poisoning. Metal poisoning and corrosion can also cause Stryker hip patients to experience pain, mobility issues, implant dislocation, and bone fractures.
