Stryker Hip Replacement Recall
In July 2012, Stryker voluntarily recalled two of its hip replacements systems – the Rejuvenate and the ABG II – because they created unexpected amounts of metal debris that can cause tissue damage and pain in otherwise healthy patients. Numerous patients have been injured by the Stryker Rejuvenate and the ABG II replacement devices and have filed hip replacement lawsuits seeking compensation.
The defect in the Stryker Rejuvenate and the ABG II hip replacement systems is in the connection between the femoral stem to the neck of the device. See photograph. Metal corrosion at the junction of the stem and neck creates toxic metal debris, inflaming and killing the tissue surrounding the hip joint, and causing metallosis, implant loosening, pseudotumor growth, and early hip replacement failure.
Stryker began selling the Rejuvenate and the ABG II hip replacement systems in 2008.
Stryker Hip Replacement Settlement
In November 2014, Stryker agreed to pay approximately $1.4 billion to settle Stryker hip replacement Rejuvenate and the ABG II hip replacement cases where the patient had a surgery to remove the device prior to November 3, 2014.
The average patient will receive $300,000 for each Stryker Rejuvenate or ABG II hip replacement that is surgically replaced. Patient’s injured by the Rejuvenate or ABG II hip implants will also receive compensation for medical expenses and additional compensation for extraordinary injuries.
There Is Still Time to Obtain Compensation for a Defective Stryker Hip Replacement
Patients implanted with defective Stryker hip implants still have time to seek compensation for their injuries, even if they have not had their device replaced before November 2013. The time to seek compensation is limited by the law, so do not delay in seeking advice.
