According to court documents, all of the Stryker Rejuvenate lawsuits pending in state and federal courts allege personal injuries due to the Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II hip stems. Plaintiffs in Stryker hip lawsuits have allegedly suffered metallosis, necrosis, osteolysis and other serious complications. According to their complaints, many of these patients have undergone revision surgery to have their failing Stryker hip removed, while others will likely need revision surgery in the future.
According to the Stryker Rejuvenate hip replacement recall notice, the Rejuvenate and ABG II hip stems are prone to fretting and corrosion at the modular-neck junction, and can generate excessive amounts of metallic debris, placing hip implant recipients at risk for pain, swelling and adverse local tissue reactions. All patients affected by the Stryker Rejuvenate recall have been advised to undergo metal ion blood testing and imaging screenings, even if they are not experiencing problems with their hip.
