Metal-on-Metal Hip Implant Lawsuits: Wright & Schulte LLC Commends Consumer Reports’ Stance on Hip, Knee Implant Regulation
Date:9/15/2013

data revealed the metal-on-metal hip implants were failing in 12-13% of patients within just five years. The Stryker Rejuvenate hip implant recall was issued in July 2012, after Rejuvenate and ABG II hip stems were found to be associated with fretting and corrosion at the modular neck junction, which can lead to pain, swelling and adverse local tissue reactions. While it was not recalled, DePuy Orthopaedics announced this past spring that it would end sales of the metal-on-metal version of the DePuy Pinnacle hip, after the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) took steps to increase the regulation of all-metal hip implants.

Since the recalls were announced, court documents indicate that more than 11,000 DePuy ASR hip implant lawsuits have been filed, including 7,800 in a multidistrict litigation underway in U.S. District Court, Northern District of Ohio. (In re: DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. ASR Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation – MDL 2197) Thousands of DePuy Pinnacle hip implant lawsuits are also pending in a consolidated proceeding underway in U.S. District Court, Northern District of Texas. (In re: DePuy Orthopaedics Inc. Pinnacle Hip Implant Product Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2244; N.D. Texas)

Hundreds of Stryker hip replacement lawsuits have also been filed since the Rejuvenate and ABG II devices were recalled, including more than 300 claims filed in New Jersey Superior Court, Bergen County. (In Re Stryker Rejuvenate Hip Stem and the ABG II Modular Hip Stem Litigation, No. 296) Nearly 200 similar Stryker Rejuvenate lawsuits are pending in a federal multidistrict litigation underway in U.S. Distri
