Stryker Rejuvenate Modular and ABG II hip implant recall
The Strker Corporation under pressure from both the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and consumers has voluntarily recalled their Rejuvenate and ABG II modular neck hip implants. The DiCello Law firm has been following this development and can be contacted by calling 1-888-778-8880 or by filling out the form on this page.
This recalls comes after it was discovered that the Rejuvenate and ABG II modular implants were fretting and/or corroding around the modular neck junctions. When fretting and/or corrosion occurs, it can damage the patient's surronding tissue. This results in extreme pain and/or swelling.
In addition to possibly fretting or corroding, the Rejuvenate and ABG II modular implants have been failing. When a hip implant fails, it leaves the patient with very little options other than to have the implant removed. The removal of a hip implant is extremely painful. There is also the possibility of the damaged being so severe that a person would be unable to have a new implant.
Other concerns with the Rejuvenate and ABG II modular hip implants failing are metal toxicity issues. The concern is if these hip implants are deteriorating, there is the possibility of some of the metals used in the implant getting into the blood stream. Once there, it can cause damage to that person’s liver, kidney and other organs.
If you believe that you have one of these implants, contact the DiCello Law Firm right away by calling 1-888-778-8880 or fill out the form on this page.
