New Stryker Hip Recall of Rejuvenate and ABG II Modular-Neck Stems

The new Stryker hip replacement recall has dealt the a big blow to the manufacturers (and the defense) of metal on metal hip replacement implants.

Metal on Metal Hip Implants Called More Dangerous Than Ceramic Or Plastic Hip Implants

This adds to another recent blow to the hip manufacturing industry. Recently, the British equivalent to the American FDA announced that the Metal on Metal hip implants should not be used since they have proven to be significantly less safe than their alternatives.

The British action caused the FDA to convene a special meeting and where they discussed the matter and looked into ways to study it… at last. With the high profile DePuy hip replacement recall of the ASR hip implants in 2010, which are also metal on metal models, you’d think that they would have have done so already.

What Took Them So Long In The U.S.?

There is no central data base of all hip replacement cases and their failure rates in the U.S., unlike in other countries. This makes statistics harder to come by. Never mind the hundreds of thousands of people who have suffered painful injuries due to failure of these implants and had to undergo the ordeal of additional surgery to replace the faulty implants and repair the damage.

Based on data in Australia and the UK, where such data banks exist, it has been shown that failure rates of metal on metal implants are at least three times as high as those of the alternative devices.

Now, Stryker has initiated a voluntary product recall of its Modular-Neck Stems as well as its Rejuvenate hip implant. Both of these are metal on metal devices. It was discovered that the metal on metal hip implants could corrode, which in turn would cause tissue damage and swelling.

This is in addition to another recent recall of the Stryker Accolade femoral stem in April, which had been used with the MITCH TRH modular head/acetabular cup.

The Hip Implant Metal Toxicity Issue

Of course, there’s also the issue of metal toxicity (particularly Cobalt and Chromium)j. Surprisingly, that isn’t mentioned much if at all in the press about the most recent Stryker hip recall, where the focus is on “corrosion” and tissue damage.

Either way, if you have a metal on metal implant, you need to make sure to have your blood checked for metal levels. The thing is that while pain in the hip area is easy to spot and easy to associate with the problematic hip implants, metal poisoning can be much easier to miss, yet it can be just as dangerous or even more so.

Stryker Hip Replacement Recall Questions and Answers

Has your Stryker Hip been recalled? Do you have questions?

Here are a few questions you may be asking yourself:

Stryker Hip Replacement Recall Questions

1) Has Your Hip Implant Been Recalled?

If your hip implant has been recalled, you might have been notified by your surgeon or by the manufacturer.

However, even if you haven’t been notified, you should know that the Stryker Durom Cup has been recalled.

2) What If It Hasn’t been Recalled But You Have Problems?

If you have problems, you should also seek help. Problems occur long before the recall, and in fact, faulty devices are often not recalled until a significant number of patients have experienced major problems.

So it’s in your best interest to alert your health practitioner – and get legal advice.
You need to protect your health – and you also need to protect your rights!

After all, if you have received a faulty implant, whether it’s been recalled or not, you may be eligible for compensation.

3) How Soon Should You Seek Legal Advice

You may wonder whether your situation is bad enough to warrant legal action. The thing is that seeking legal advice is often free and it does not constitute legal action!

So don’t hesitate to find out what your rights are as soon as possible. There’s a good reason for that: The Statute of Limitations.

The Statute of Limitations means that your rights for compensation expire after a certain time, and you definitely don’t want that to happen to you.

So go ahead and talk to a competent lawyer as soon as you experience problems – or know that your implant has been involved in the Stryker Hip Replacement Recall.

Stryker Hip Recall

Stryker Hip Recall News has been off the radar for a while, though it isn’t off the radar for affected parties.

Still, the recall of the Stryker Trident Hip Replacement Impalant has definitely been overshadowed by other hip recalls such as the DePuy ASR Implant recall or the Zimmer Hip Replacement Recall.

Stryker Hip Replacement Recall

The Stryker case is a bit different, yet the basic problem that the patient faces remains the same:

If you have had hip replacement surgery, you surely expected that it would last for a VERY long time, hopefully the high end of those 10 to 15 years you’ve probably been told, and preferably¬† all the way until, well, until you wouldn’t need it anymore.

Instead, a lot of those implants have needed replacing after a year or two.¬† That’s what “sooner than expected” means.

So what’s the situation in your case?

Maybe you have already had your hip implant replaced.¬† Maybe you’re still struggling on, wondering what to do.

We can’t help you with the medical part, or at least only indrectly. However, if you have received a hip implant that has been recalled, or which MIGHT be recalled because of a high failure rate, we’d like to help you get compensated for your pain and suffering due to the faulty implant.

The thing is that it can be quite a challenge to get compensation, at least when it comes to ADEQUATE and JUST compensation.

And part of the reason for that is that people make mistakes — big mistakes.
