The FDA in 2014 has encouraged doctors  to remove IVC filters within one to two months after the risk of pulmonary embolism has passed. IVC Filter Lawsuits For: Fracture of the IVC Filer Movement of the filter out of place Filter Puncturing  the vena cava Internal injuries Patients and doctors were not adequately warned about their potential for defect.

Stryker Voluntary Recall of Hip Replacement, Stryker Lawyers Take Notice

Written by lisaspitzer on . Posted in Class MDL Class Action News

The Stryker ABG II modular-neck stem used for total hip replacement surgery and The Stryker Rejuvinate modular-neck stem hip implant lawyers filing lawsuits for Stryker Hip Replacement recall.

Stryker recalled both of these products on July 4, 2012 because the metal of the neck and stem can corrode, releasing toxic metal ions that can damage tissue and bones around the hip implant.  This can cause severe pain, inflammation, metal poisoning (metallosis from chromium and cobalt), tissue death (necrosis), bone damage, pseudotumers, gait issues, and other serious problems. Revision surgery (to remove and replace the recalled Stryker hip product) may be required.

In July 2012, Stryker Orthopaedics voluntarily recalled its Rejuvenate Modular Hip System. The recall includes both Stryker’s Rejuvenate Modular and ABG II modular-neck hip stems.
Risks

Stryker initiated this voluntary recall due to potential risk associated with modular-neck stems.
 

  •     Fretting and/or corrosion at the modular-neck junction,
  •     Pain and/or swelling.
  •     Need For Revision Surgery
  •     Joint loosening/dislocation
  •     Device wear and tear, such as corrosion and fretting
  •     Excessive metal debris leading to metal ion generation
  •     Inflammation of tissue
  •     Hypersensitivity/allergic response
  •     Broken devices
     

All recipients of these two hip replacements must see their doctor immediately and retain a Stryker Hip replacement lawyer. Do not wait. It is only a matter of time before a new Mutli District Litigation for the Stryker hip Implant becomes T,V news. Lawyers are accepting cases for both of these implants.

Stryker Rejuvenate Hip Implant lawyers accepting cases for stryker Hip replacement
The Stryker Rejuvenate hip replacement device has been linked to an increased risk of metallosis. Although the Stryker Rejuvenate is not a metal-on-metal hip device, it has metal-on-metal components, which are believed to be responsible for the development of metallosis in some patients. According to reports, the Stryker Rejuvenate hip implant device is linked to a high early failure rate, resulting in some patients having revision surgery to replace their hip replacement device. Lawyers are now qccepting cases for the failure of the Syryker Rejuvenate Hip replacement.

Call the new  Stryker Orthopedics Rejuvenate Hip replacement Helplineand speak to a Hip Replacement Lawyer.
Stryker Rejuvenate Hip Implant

The Stryker Rejuvenate hip implant is different from other hip replacement devices in the news recently because it is not a metal-on-metal hip replacement device. Instead, the Rejuvenate hip replacement device, which uses a ceramic component, was meant as an alternative to the metal-on-metal devices. It was marketed to younger patients as a modular hip replacement, meaning the components were custom-made to fit patients better, which was supposed to result in longer-lasting hip replacement devices that offered a better range of motion.

Some patients reportedly developed metallosis after having the Stryker Rejuvenate hip device implanted. Although it was initially believed that such a condition was not possible—because the Stryker Rejuvenate does not have a metal-on-metal ball and socket design—the Stryker hip device has a metal neck piece that can, under some conditions, rub against a metal stem, causing metallic debris to come loose.

Stryker has responded to concerns about the Rejuvenate failure rate by alleging patients did not properly undergo rehabilitation following surgery, or by blaming doctors' implantation techniques. In a Product Correction Bulletin (04/25/12), Stryker officials noted, "Factors such as diabetes and infection may play a role in potential corrosion of an implant as these conditions may affect the pH of the tissue surrounding the implant."

Metallosis is an adverse tissue reaction to heavy metals in the body. It can cause pain, limited mobility, failure of the hip joint, pseudo-tumors, dissolution of the bone, DNA changes and chromosomal aberrations. Patients who have had their Stryker Rejuvenate hip implant device fail may have undergone revision surgery. Typically, hip implants are expected to last 15 to 20 years. In some cases, the Stryker Rejuvenate hips are failing in less than five years. It seems we once again have a failed hip replacement. If you or a loved one has a failed Stryker hip implant or Cobalt or Chromium poisoning call the Stryker Rejuvente Hip Replacement Helpline  today.
