Ordeal Endured by Stryker Hip Recall Lawsuit Plaintiff Prompts Comment from Wright & Schulte LLC
Date:9/29/2013

Columbus, OH (PRWEB) September 29, 2013

As hundreds of Stryker hip recall lawsuits filed since last year’s Stryker Rejuvenate Hip and ABG II hip stem recall continue to move through the court system, a report out of Chicago is driving home exactly how difficult life can be for recipients of these allegedly defective components, according to Wright & Schulte LLC. In a news segment that aired on 5 NBC last month, Mark Stephan, who once gained famed by climbing the Willis Tower, recounted the pain and suffering he has endured since receiving his Stryker hip implant. According to the NBC 5 report, the climb was a huge accomplishment for Willis, who survived a 2007 bicycle accident that severed his spine.

Now, he’s dealing with an artificial hip that has been corroding since it was implanted, and must decide whether or not to have the device removed and replaced. According to the 5 NBC report, if the Stryker hip replacement is allowed to remain, Stephan may be at risk for liver or kidney damage due to the toxic metal particles being shed from the device. Like hundreds of others around the country, he has filed a Stryker hip replacement lawsuit that alleges Stryker failed to adequately test the Rejuvenate and ABG II hip stems before they were brought to market. “There are others out there like me, and Stryker needs to be held accountable,” Stephan told 5 NBC.

Pending Stryker Hip Recall Lawsuits and Allegations
According to Wright & Schulte LLC, Stephan’s experience with his Stryker hip implant echoes allegations made in hundreds of Stryker hip replacement lawsuits filed since the Rejuvenate and ABG II hip stems were recalled in July 2012. So far, two consolidated litigations have been established in the U.S. for these claims. Court documents indicate that more than 380 Stryker hip recall lawsuits have been filed in New Jersey’s Bergen County Superior Court, where a small number of cases have been selected for early mediation. The court has directed that a mediation session to discuss possible Stryker hip lawsuit settlements be convened by December 15th. (In re Stryker Rejuvenate Hip Stem and the ABG II Modular Hip Stem Litigation, No. 296)

Some 290 Stryker hip implant lawsuits have also been filed in a federal multidistrict litigation underway in U.S. District Court, District of Minnesota. The first conference in that proceeding was convened on September 9th. (In Re: Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2441)
Stryker hip replacement recall

The Stryker hip replacement recall was announced after it became apparent that Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II hip stems were associated with high rates of corrosion at the modular-neck junction. Toxic metal ions generated as a result of this corrosion can accumulate to unhealthy levels in the tissue surrounding the joint, and in the blood stream. According to Stryker, patients who have experienced this phenomenon have suffered pain, swelling, and adverse local tissue reactions.
