Stryker Hip Implants Lawyers Serving Florida

Stryker’s Rejuvenate and ABG II hip implant systems have both been recalled. They have been on the market for less than two years. It is estimated that over 20,000 patients received these implants in the United States. The FDA approved the sale of Stryker’s modular neck design without conducting any clinical testing. To date, the FDA has already received nearly 100 adverse reaction reports. Lawsuits against Stryker have already been filed in New Jersey alleging that Stryker hip implants are defective.The Rejuvenate and ABG II hip implants were supposed to provide patients with a safe alternative to metal on metal devices. Metal on metal implants, like the De Puy implant are considered dangerous because of abrasion and corrosion problems. When metal hips implants corrode they can cause dangerous medical problems like metal or cobalt poisoning.

Most hip implants have two parts: A stem, inserted into the femur and a ball and a cup inserted into the pelvis. Stryker’s Rejuvenate design uses a new interchangeable stem that was supposed to provide a more custom if. Unfortunately. the implants were sold to patients without sufficient clinical testing.The most serious concern for people who have Stryker hip implants is due to corrosion developing between the ball and stem in the femur as well as fluid collection. When this happens patients become immobile, develop pain, broken bones, swelling, tissue damage and most often require revision surgery.Revision surgery is very complicated and dangerous. In revision procedures, the faulty or broken components have to be removed. There are many surgeons in the United States who are competent and experienced in implanting artificial hips. Removing and revising them is a completely different skill set. We recommend that anyone is is considering having a revision surgery to confirm that your surgeon has had extensive experience in conducting these types of procedure.Defective Medical Device Lawyer | aronfeld

In addition, when a hip implant is removed, the implant itself becomes evidence. It is very important that the evidence be preserved in a special way. Styker and other implant manufacturers may defend a claim on the basis that the device was tampered with after the removal. Therefore, if you are planning on having your implant removed, please contact us for our guidelines on how to preserve the evidence.

Often times, we photographs and videotape our client’s revision surgeries, recoveries, and physical therapy. The hours, days and months after hip implant surgery are important to record in order to maximize the recover of potential claims.
