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.
