Columbus, OH (PRWEB) March 10, 2013

Wright & Schulte LLC, an experienced personal injury law firm, reports that at least 80 Stryker hip lawsuits filed in the wake of the Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II hip stem recall are pending in New Jersey’s Bergen County Superior Court. In January, the New Jersey Supreme Court granted a request by plaintiffs to consolidate all pending Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II Modular-Neck Hip Replacement Stems lawsuits associated with the recall in a single proceeding in Bergen County.

The Stryker hip implant recall was announced in July 2012, and involved some 20,000 metal components that had been sold since the Rejuvenate and ABG II hip came on the market in 2009. According to Stryker, Rejuvenate and ABG II hip stems are prone to fretting and corrosion at the modular neck junction. If this occurs, patients may experience pain, swelling, and adverse local tissue reactions. However, some Stryker hip recall patients have been found to have high levels of metal ions in their blood, even though they experienced no such symptoms.

According to a report by NorthJersey.com, plaintiffs with Stryker hip recall lawsuits pending in the New Jersey litigation allege the metal particles shed from malfunctioning Rejuvenate and ABGII hip stems caused them to experience muscle, nerve and bone damage. According to an attorney for some of the plaintiffs, many have undergone revision surgery to have their failing Stryker hip removed, while others will likely need revision surgery in the future. While Stryker’s marketing materials promised the Rejuvenate and ABG II components would last for 20 years, most of the plaintiffs experienced failure within just a few years of implantation.

NorthJersey.com is also reporting that Stryker is reimbursing patients for some costs related to the Rejuvenate and ABG II recall. However, because any information disclosed in the process of filing a claim with the company could be used in future legal proceedings, Wright & Schulte LLC is recommending that those affected should seek the advice of an attorney before they discuss reimbursement with Stryker.
