Stryker issued a recall of the Rejuvenate and ABG II modular implant systems in July of 2012***. As part of the recall, the company admitted some patients experienced adverse local tissue reactions or elevated levels of metal in the bloodstream, even if no symptoms were present***.

So far, more than 80 patients affected by the hip recall have filed Stryker lawsuits in a New Jersey multi-district court****.

DrugRisk has also learned that patients filed a petition with the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation asking that Stryker lawsuits be consolidated to a special federal court in the U.S. District Court, District of Minnesota.
