This Stryker Hip Replacement Helpline has been launched for victims of the latest Stryker voluntary recall of the Stryker ABG II modular-neck stem used for total hip replacement surgery and the Stryker Rejuvenate modular-neck stem hip implant. The Stryker hip implants have been recalled due to the fact that they could fret or corrode, harming body tissue and causing pain or swelling. They are also causing Cobalt and Chromium toxic levels in the bloodstream.
Complications and Injuries
- Severe inflammatory reactions
- Pain in the groin
- Need for additional medical care and revision surgeries
- Breakdown of muscles, tendons and other soft tissues
- Loss of surrounding bone
- Loss of mobility
Cobalt and Chromium Toxicity Complications Include:
- Inflammation / swelling
- Redness of the skin at the site of implant
- Soft tissue changes – including tissue death
- Damage to and loss of muscle tissue
- Lymphatic infiltration
The Stryker Rejuvenate side effects appear to be similar to the Metal on Metal Hip Replacements that have caused a landslide of lawsuits against DePuy Orthopedics. While other types of hip implants such as those made by Johnson & Johnson and DePuy Orthopaedics Inc. involve a metal ball rubbing against a metal socket, the Stryker Rejuvenate products involve a metal neck inside a metal stem. It appears that lawyers are beginning to build cases against Stryker as a part of the complete metal on metal hip replacement lawsuits. Stryker does run the risk of metal toxicity as chromium and cobalt poisoning may occur.
Anyone experiencing side effects from these Stryker products is advised to call the Stryker Hip Replacement Helpline for a Wyoming Stryker Hip Replacement lawyer.
Stryker states that the rate of complications arising from the recalled devices was “extremely low”. The company based its recall decision on information collected since the products hit the market, saying it “may be predictive of a trend”. It instructed patients implanted with the devices to contact their surgeon.
