Stryker Hip Replacement System Recalls
To date, two Stryker hip replacement systems have been recalled:
- Stryker Rejuvenate
- Stryker ABG II
Why the Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II were Recalled.
Stryker Rejuvenate and Stryker ABG II were recalled because of the risks associated with the modular-neck systems of these devices. The recall states that the metal components of the modular neck hip stems carry a high risk for fretting or corrosion which can cause swelling and pain for the patient.
Risks / Side Effects of the Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II Hip Replacement Systems
- Severe pain, typically radiating into the groin and/or back
- Flexible stem is too weak
- Flexible stem degrades, fractures or breaks
- Difficulty standing or walking
- Necrosis (death of body tissue)
- Bone and soft tissue damage
- Elevated cobalt or chromium levels in blood
- Implant loosening
- Lysis (destruction or dissolution of cells)
- Device failure
- Fluid collection and/or masses of tissues collecting around the joint
- The need for additional revision surgeries (which may or may not be successful in correcting the problem)
