Which products are being recalled?
The “Rejuvenate” and “ABG II” are modular-neck stems used during hip arthroplasty that were voluntarily recalled in August 2012 by the manufacturer Stryker Orthopaedics. While the manufacturer is New Jersey based, more and more victims are coming forward nationally.
What are the side effects of the “Rejuvenate” and “ABG II” hip implants?
Scientific evidence concludes that the metal stem in models “Rejuvenate” and “ABG II” are susceptible to corroding and fretting which can lead to metal ion deposits in the surrounding soft tissue. The products are not metal-on-metal devices like the recalled Johnson & Johnson?s DePuy ASR product however they still pose a risk for metal ion build up. The increased levels of chromium ions and cobalt in the bloodstream can be a toxic combination leading to adverse reactions. The adverse reactions include bone dissolution, pseudo tumors, necrosis (death) of skin tissue, bone and muscle and inflammation of the synovial membrane which are all issues that can cause additional bodily harm, pain, swelling and further health complications. Get compensation for your suffering!
Hip arthroplasty can be a painful surgical process the first time, and the additional required revisional surgery to remove and replace the defective product can be a painful and costly process requiring a long recovery time. Our attorneys will seek compensation for your past, current and future pain, suffering, and medical expenses. We empathize with you and understand the traumatic and unfortunate experience you have undergone and want to help. We will take care of your legal matters while you heal.
