DePuy Hip Replacement Helpline has launched a DePuy Pinnacle Helpline to locate all people with a faulty DePuy Pinnacle. You must file your DePuy Pinnacle lawsuit right away.

Recipients of the various metal on metal hip implants are suffering nationwide.

“I used to ski, hike and swim. Tennis was my favorite sport and I miss it so much. I can’t do any of that anymore. All I can do now is watch videos on the computer or watch TV. As you can imagine, I gained weight (I just went on a diet) since I had my hip replaced. I can’t lose weight by exercising, and because I can’t exercise, my whole body aches. I guess I will get revision surgery at the last minute, if they can still do it. The doctor told my mother that my hip might not even be able to get fixed again, so that has made me even more hesitant.”

History Of the Failed DePuy

2009

In August, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warns DePuy about the safety of an artificial hip device sold abroad. DePuy’s research and clinical data are inadequate, so it can’t sell the product in the United States. Meanwhile, DePuy continues to market the product outside America.

2010

DePuy begins phasing out two models of its all-metal implants that are sold in the United States. The company cites falling sales. (According to a 2012 New York Times report, DePuy actually started planning the phase-out shortly after receiving the FDA warning.) Reports of complications and high rates of early device failure have already surfaced. DePuy defends its devices by blaming failures on surgeon errors.

2010

DePuy finally recalls its Articular Surface Replacement (ASR) Acetabular Hip System and ASR Hip Resurfacing System. It cites “higher than expected revision rates” for the all-metal devices.

2011

The FDA warns DePuy to stop selling certain products, including artificial joint systems, without proper approval. It also cites ineffective quality control procedures.

2012

Stryker hip recall lawsuits are moving forward in a consolidated litigation established in New Jersey Superior Court, Bergen County .   Judge Brian R. Martinotti has scheduled the litigation’s initial conference for February 20, 2013 at 10:00 a.m. (In re Stryker Rejuvenate Hip Stem and the ABG II Modular Hip Stem Litigation, No. 296 (N.J. Super. Ct., Bergen Cty.)

Both the Stryker Rejuvinate Stem and ABGII Modular Hip Stem were recalled and the hip replacement helpline Stryker division has had numerous calls from people suffering from a failed Stryker metal component hip replacement.

On January 17, 2013, the FDA issued a safety communication regarding metal-on-metal hip implants. The press release is an update to the agency’s evaluation of the potential complications of these devices. The update notes that all-metal implants carry risks that are unique because of the friction of their components.

Stryker has claimed the new hip replacement would:

  • Rejuvenate hips were first made available by Stryker in February 2009
  • increased stability,
  • better mobility,
  • superior fit over other hip replacement implants on the market.

Apparently this is not the case as it was necessary to recall the implants and lawsuits are flooding in. Get an experienced Stryker lawsuit Lawyer at the Stryker Hip Replacement Help division of Hip Replacement Helpline

Stryker has recently recalled it’s Rejuvinate Hip replacement and ABG II Hip Stems due to the number of failed components causing complications. In June 2012, Stryker initiated a voluntary recall of its Rejuvenate and ABG II modular-neck hip stems. “While modular-neck hip stems provide surgeons with an option to correct certain aspects of a patient’s anatomy and hip biomechanics, we decided to voluntarily recall these modular-neck hip systems due to the potential for fretting and corrosion at the modular-neck junction which may result in ALTR (adverse local tissue reactions), as well as possible pain and/or swelling at or around the hip.” Since that date we have had  100’s of calls from people with a failed hip replacement.

The mission of the new Stryker Hip Replacement Helpline is to locate all people with a failed Stryker who have required revision surgery or have been told they need revision surgery and help them file a Stryker Hip Replacement lawsuit.

More South Floridians filed lawsuits this week against the company that recalled a hip implant because it was poisoning recipients.

Three patients from Boca Raton, Lake Worth and Boynton Beach are the latest seeking compensation as they cope with a range of heavy metal poisoning symptoms from the Rejuvenate model of hip implant made by Stryker Orthopaedic. They also want the Michigan-based company to pay for the risky surgery necessary to remove the faulty hip.

South Florida has many seniors and the numbers of hip replacements are consistent with this population. Faulty hip rreplacements lead to pain and an inability to function. The complications are severe with additional surgeries requiring longer periods of rehabilitation.
