Many of these Stryker hip implant side effect claims are time sensitive, so act now to ensure your ability to pursue compensation for your pain and suffering.
Unlike traditional hip implants that feature a one-piece, one-size-fits-all stem and neck design, the recalled Stryker Rejuvenate and Stryker ABG II devices offered surgeons interchangeable stems and modular neck pieces in order to custom fit the hip implants for each patient. The manufacturer of these devices, Stryker Corporation, heavily marketed this ability to customize the Rejuvenate with hopes of appealing to a younger and more active generation of implant-receiving patients.
How the Faulty Design of the Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II May Affect You
Although the hip socket joints on the Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II are not considered metal-on-metal like the DePuy hip implant recalls, certain metal components within both the Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II devices are susceptible to deteriorating and grinding down over time and use.
Individuals with these defective Stryker hip implants have reported severe metallosis as well as other health issues. Metallosis occurs when metals, such as the heavy metal components of the Stryker hip implant’s titanium alloy blend, are released into and build up in the blood stream, soft tissues and bone matter. This “corrosion-resistant” blend that Stryker marketed includes a number of potentially harmful metals such as cobalt, titanium, zirconium, molybdenum and iron. Once these metals are released into the body, they can also damage a number of vital organs, such as the liver, spleen, kidneys and lymph nodes.
What Other Serious Side Effects Are Associated with the Defective Stryker Hip Implants?
In addition to severe metallosis, the defective Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II can also cause:
- Tissue necrosis
- Bone dissolution
- Infection and inflammation
- Excessive pain
