Stryker Hip Recall

Court documents issued in September indicate that Stryker lawsuits are continuing to pile up in both the federal and state proceedings established in the U.S. In a multicounty litigation currently underway in New Jersey’s Bergen County Superior Court, a total of 382 cases alleging injuries caused by the Stryker hip recall have been filed. The lawyers at Bernstein Liebhard LLP are actively filing cases alleging metallosis, necrosis, osteolysis and other artificial hip injuries in this litigation. (In Re Stryker Rejuvenate Hip Stem and the ABG II Modular Hip Stem Litigation, No. 296)

A total of 290 Stryker lawsuits are also pending in a federal proceeding underway in the U.S. District Court, District of Minnesota, which similarly allege that the Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II hip stems were defectively designed by Stryker Orthopaedics, given the potential for their metal components to fret and corrode at the modular-neck junction. The next status conference in this litigation has been scheduled for November 21st at 9:00 a.m. (In re: Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2441)
Plaintiffs involved in in both of these proceedings were allegedly forced to undergo revision surgery to remove the metal hip after it failed prematurely.

The Stryker hip recall was announced by the manufacturer on July 6, 2012 after post-market surveillance data revealed the potential for the metal components of the Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II hip stems to fail early. In the wake of the recall, Stryker Orthopaedics has advised all recipients of these devices to undergo routine medical screening to monitor for the high metal levels in the blood, whether or not they are experiencing symptoms.**
