Stryker Hip Class Action Lawsuit and Recall
If you, or a loved one has had a Stryker hip implant, you may be eligible to file a Stryker class action lawsuit.
Successful outcomes would yield settlements to cover all medical bills, pain and suffering, loss of wages, and any other losses that result or relate to complications of hip replacement.
This metal on metal hip replacement has been recalled due to the serious complications that may occur.
Stryker Orthopedics have been in the news for having recalled, voluntarily, components of metal hip replacements confirming the claim: metal-on-metal type of replacements are innately faulty and dangerous.
The ABG II and Rejuvenate modular neck stems have been pulled. Due to the metal these hip replacements are made of, corrosion and fragmentation is occurring.
The result is swelling and pain due to inflammation of the tissues surrounding the hip. The recal of the Stryker Modular neck stems by doctors is supposed to correct any number of problems these faulty products are now known to cause.
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.

Stryker Hip Implant Side effectsStryker Recall of the Rejuvenate and ABG II
Modular Neck Hip Replacement Implant
What is the problem with Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II products?
The metal necks located within metal stems corrode and put the device recipient at risk to develop metal poisoning.
Due to potential friction and metal corrosion taking place between the stem and the neck piece, the device could give off microscopic metallic debris causing severe inflammatory responses throughout the 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 is important for the many individuals who have been hurt by these products.
The Stryker hips are different than the design of other implants of metal-on-metal, involving sockets and metal balls. The concern is that the recalled neck stems cause problems in patients with metal-on-metal hip replacements.
The devices are linked to failure of hip implants, complications and loosening as a result of metal poisoning. Also, excessive levels of cobalt was found in a number of the metal-on-metal implants which can lead to thyroid, nerve and heart problems.
Stryker Hip Class Action Lawsuit
More than one Stryker class action lawsuit has been reported after evidence has shown significantly more side effects from metal devices when compared to implants made from plastic or ceramic. It is something that led Stryker to recall the implants, an action that only verifies our suspicion: These products were poorly engineered and should not have been released on the market in the first place.
If you have suffered complications after receiving an ABG II or Rejuvenate implant, you may be eligible to participate in a Stryker class action lawsuit to recover compensation from the manufacturer for any suffering, pain, or medical bills.
