Revision surgeries may be needed due to premature failures. Stryker lawyers  are seeking patients with  LFit V40 femoral heads made before 2011.

The Stryker Rejuvenate Hip Recall for metal toxicity was a surprise to many patients and doctors because it is not a metal on metal hip. In fact, many patients selected this hip to avoid the metallosis problem that has been in the news for the last two years since the DePuy ASR metal on metal recall in August of 2010.

The Stryker Rejuvenate hip is made with a ceramic ball and a polyethylene liner in the acetabular cup. The recalled DePuy ASR and the recalled Smith & Nephew R3 hips both have a metal ball and a metal cup which is called a metal on metal articulation. The problem with the metal on metal hips is that the metal on metal interface generates metallic debris that is toxic to the tissues in the hip compartment causing fluid buildup, tissue damage, and failure of the implant.

A lawsuit claiming that Stryker Corporation was negligent and did not adequately warn patients about the risks associated with its Trident hip replacement system was filed in the Superior Court of the State of Indiana for the County of Marion by plaintiff Darlene A. Gray. On the 5th of September, 2012, the suit was removed under federal diversity jurisdiction. The lawsuit claims that plaintiff Gray had the Trident hip system implanted after suffering from avascular necrosis of the right hip for a number of years, however, the device failed much earlier than what would be reasonably expected, she was forced to undergo Stryker revision surgery in order to correct complications she was experiencing as a result of her implant.
