Hutton & Hutton is currently accepting cases involving patients who
underwent hip replacement surgery involving the Stryker Rejuvenate or
ABG II modular hip implant system.
Stryker recalled its Rejuvenate and ABG II modular hip implant systems
in July 2012 after the implants showed signs of corroding and fretting
at the neck/stem junction. Stryker aggressively marketed these hip implant
systems as safe and effective and claimed that its patented metal mixture
of titanium and cobalt chrome resisted corroding and fretting. However,
the constant rubbing together of the metal components at the junction
can release metal ions into the bloodstream which can result in premature
failure, infection, pain, and tissue and bone death.
If you would like additional information concerning this or any other
product liability or
personal injury litigation, please contact Andrew Hutton or Blake Shuart at 316-688-1166.
