The Stryker Hip Recall And Stryker Hip Lawsuits
The Stryker hip replacement recall was announced because of a high number of reports of the metal components fretting and corroding at the modular-neck junction. According to the Stryker Rejuvenate lawsuits and Stryker ABG II lawsuits, this action can generate unhealthy levels of microscopic metal particles that may accumulate in the tissue surrounding the joint, and in the blood stream. According to Stryker, patients who have experienced this phenomenon have suffered pain, swelling, and adverse local tissue reactions.
According to court documents filed in the Stryker hip recall litigation moving forward in New Jersey, a limited number of cases have been chosen for early mediation. Sessions for Phase I of early mediation began on December 4th. The process for selecting Stryker hip lawsuits for Phase II of early mediation will begin no later than December 16th.
