Some Patients Are At Higher Risk
The FDA has reported a list of risk factors for metal-on-metal hip implant complications. Patients are more likely to experience problems if they:
- Are overweight
- Are physically active
- Are female
- Have sensitivity to certain metals
- Have a suppressed immune system
- Have kidney failure
- Take corticosteroids
The FDA also recommended that orthopedic surgeons evaluate hip implant patients periodically for signs of possible device failure. This includes patients who do not present with symptoms of implant problems; they should receive a clinical evaluation every one to two years.
This includes the Rejuvenate Modular Primary Hip System and Rejuvenate Total Hip System which have been recalled due to possible side effects similar to those seen in metal-on-metal hip implants.
On July 4, 2012, Stryker issued a voluntary product recall of its Rejuvenate Modular and ABG II modular-neck hip stems. According to Stryker, the recall was initiated due to the potential risks associated with modular-neck stems, including fretting and/or corrosion at or around the modular-neck junction. This can lead to pain and/or swelling at the joint.

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.
