It was announced on July 6, 2012 that Stryker is pulling its Rejuvenate and ABG II modular-neck stems off the market. Had this action been taken much earlier, many unfortunate injuries could have been avoided. The company admitted
that the risks associated with fretting and corrosion at the modular neck junction outweighed any benefit. Had surgeons been given full disclosure of the risks, they would have never implanted these dangerous metal hip implants in their patients.
Stryker Orthopaedics could not longer ignore the post market adverse event reports. Stryker notified healthcare professionals and regulatory bodies of this voluntary recall. Patients who were implanted with a Rejuvenate Modular or ABG II modular-neck stem are encouraged to contact a hip implant recall lawyer at the Levensten Law Firm to immediately protect your rights.
