Are You Eligible to Join a Stryker Class Action Lawsuit?
Stryker Orthopedics have been in the news as of late having recalled components of metal hip replacements, confirming the claim that metal-on-metal hip replacements are innately faulty and dangerous.
The ABG II and Rejuvenate modular neck stems have been pulled from the market.
These hip implants had metal-on-metalo, which corroded over time causing a slew of problems to the recipient.
The result is swelling and pain due to inflammation on the tissues surrounding it, metal poisoning and more.
The recall of the Stryker Modular neck stems by doctors is too late for those who have already received the implant. They were marketed as ideal for younger patients since the artificial components were meant to offer better motion range and hip implants that last for a long time.
The metal on metal hips have caused more harm than good, and the side effects they cause have lead to victims filing a Stryker Class Action Lawsuit.
If you have been implanted with a Stryker hip device of this nature, you may be eligible to join the Stryker class action lawsuit intended to offset medical bills and other losses related to your injury.

Problems with Stryker Metal-on-Metal Devices
You might be wondering what the problem is with these Stryker products. They have metal necks located within metal stems, risking metal poisoning (metallosis) and damage to bodily tissues of the recipients.
Due to potential friction and metal corrosion taking place between the stem and the neck piece, the device can make small metal pieces spread out into the local area, and into the bloodstream causing the most severe inflammatory responses across the entire body. The result is damaged soft tissue and muscles while compromising revision surgery.
In fact, it has been found that a minimum of 45 patients with the Stryker implants of ABG II and Rejuvenate modular neck stems have serious tissue swelling and reported pain, thus the Stryker class action lawsuit has begun.
The Stryker hips are designed differently from other implants of metal-on-metal, involving a socket and a metal ball.The devices are linked to hip-replacement failure, loosening, metal poisoning, and other complications. The corrosion of the metal implant can lead to excessive cobalt levels in the blood which causes thyroid, nerve and heart problems.
More than one Stryker class action lawsuit has been reported after more evidence on hip implants has shown a lot of side effects as compared to implants made from plastic or ceramic. It is something that led Stryker to recall the implants, meaning litigation will increase from those patients claiming the hip implants have injured them one way or the other.
