These recent case orders, which were issued on July 23 and July 26, 2013, respectively, pertain to discovery and case management issues affecting these Stryker Hip lawsuits.

The Stryker Hip lawsuits involved in the New Jersey MCL all allege that the defective design of Stryker’s recalled Rejuvenate and ABG II Hip Stem caused the plaintiffs to sustain severe injuries. Additionally, these cases contend that Stryker knew or should have known about the serious risks associated with its Rejuvenate and ABG II Hip Stem implants and that the manufacturer should have warned the public about these risks well before issuing a national recall on these devices in July 2012.

Some of the specific injuries and complications that the plaintiffs in these Stryker hip implant lawsuits allege to have developed include metallosis, early failure of the hip implant, damage to the bones and tissues surrounding the implant and the need for risky corrective surgery to remove defective Stryker hip implants.

2012 Stryker Hip Recall on the Rejuvenate and ABG II Hip Stem

On July 6, 2012, Stryker announced that it was voluntarily recalling its Rejuvenate and ABG II modular-neck stems due to the possibility of these devices corroding, failing earlier than they should and/or causing patients to develop metallosis. Metallosis is a condition in which chromium and other metal ions build up in the blood stream and, as a result, can cause severe complications. According to Stuart Simpson, Stryker’s Vice President and General Manager at the time of the recall, “while modular-neck stems provide surgeons with an option to correct certain aspects of a patient’s anatomy and hip biomechanics, given the potential risks associated with fretting and corrosion at the modular neck junction, Stryker Orthopaedics decided to take this voluntary action.” [ July 2013]
