If you received a Stryker Rejuvenate or ABG II hip implant and developed complications, you may want to inquire with Greenville SC attorney Thomas Creech to see if you have a claim for defective hip implant.
Stryker Orthopedics has recalled the Rejuvenate modular neck stem implant due to corrosion at the femoral neck stem junction. This type of corrosion can present a myriad of problems and complications for a patient.
According to multiple media outlets, on November 3, 2014, Stryker announced a nation-wide settlement of claims invlving defective Rejuvenate and ABG II hip implants.
These Stryker hip implants can cause very serious harm for patients including pseudo tumor, tissue damage, and metallosis. Moreover, a recent study in the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery determined that the corrosion-related revision rates of the Stryker Rejuvenate modular neck were 28% in the one study. Apparently there have been other studies indicating that the revision rates in these Stryker Rejuvenate implants at less than 4 years were as high as 40%, which is very, very high.
