Stryker Hip Recall
According to court documents, the Stryker hip recall was announced in July 2012 after Rejuvenate and ABG II hip stems were found to be vulnerable to high rates of fretting and corrosion at the modular-neck junction. All of the claims pending in the state and federal litigations allege that the metal hip components caused recipients to suffer osteolysis, tissue necrosis, metallosis, and other complications that often required revision surgery to remove and replace the device.
