Stryker Hip Replacement Helpline, Stryker Recall Lawyers

Written by lisaspitzer on . Posted in Stories and Sharing

A 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 Rejuvinate 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.

Complications and Injuries that are noted include:

  •     Severe inflammatory reactions
  •     Pain in the groin
  •     Need for additional medical care and revision surgeries
  •     Breakdown of muscles, tendons and other soft tissues in and around the hip joint
  •     Loss of surrounding bone
  •     Loss of mobility

The Stryker Rejuvenate side effects  appear to be similiar 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 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.
