Hip Replacement

Stryker Orthopedics: Hip Replacement Recall Lawsuits

Lawsuits stemming from the Stryker Orthopedics Rejuvenate Modular Hip System Recall continue to pile up in Bergen County.

At issue are early failures associated with the Stryker Orthopedics Rejuvenate Modular Hip System that include but are not limited to corrosion of the components causing swelling of surrounding tissue and a condition known as metallosis.

Metallosis occurs when minute particles of metal that fret from the various metallic hip components are absorbed into the bloodstream, causing metallosis, which translates to a serious toxicity in the bloodstream.

Revision surgery – which involves replacing the defective hip with another product usually from a different manufacturer – can be far more complicated than the initial hip replacement. It can also require more healing time, and involve the potential for increased complications not normally at play for the initial procedure.

Currently, there are more than 2,000 consolidated cases pending in Bergen County Superior Court (In re Stryker Rejuvenate Hip Stem and the ABG II Modular Hip Stem Litigation, No. 296). Judge Brian R. Martinotti has scheduled trials for June and July of 2015.
