Florida Man Says Stryker’s Rejuvenate Hip Implant is Defective, Causing him Serious Injuries, Need for Revision Surgery, Alleges Lawsuit Filed by Parker Waichman LLP
Date:7/24/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) July 24, 2013

Parker Waichman LLP, a national law firm dedicated to protecting the rights of victims injured by defective medical devices, has filed a lawsuit on behalf of a Florida man who alleges that his Stryker Rejuvenate hip implant is defective and has caused him injuries. The suit was filed on May 24, 2013, in New Jersey’s Superior Court of Bergen County (Docket No.BER-L-4085-13). It is one of many cases related to the Multicounty Litigation entitled In Re Stryker Rejuvenate Hip Stem and ABG II Modular Hip Stem Litigation, Case No. 296.

According to the Complaint, the Plaintiff was implanted with a Rejuvenate hip stem on his right side, on or around June 6, 2011. On Feb. 13, 2013, the Plaintiff needed revision surgery to remove the hip stem. The Plaintiff alleges that the device caused him injury as well as economic loss.

The Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II Hip Stems are akin to the metal-on-metal hip implant category in that they contain metal components that come in contact with one another, which can cause the release of metal ions. Many metal-on-metal hip implant manufacturers have recalled their products; Stryker followed suit, voluntarily recalling both products in June 2012. One year later, Stryker Corp.'s second-quarter profit fell 34% as the medical-device maker recorded a $170 million charge tied to the product recalls, according to a July 18 MarketWatch.com report.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has since put the metal-on-metal implant class under greater scrutiny following reports of high failure rates and the release of high concentrations of metallic debris into the bloodstrea
