Date:3/17/2013

Columbus, OH (PRWEB) March 17, 2013

Wright & Schulte LLC, an experienced defective medical device law firm, reports that the New Jersey Supreme Court has established a multicounty litigation for all Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II hip replacement recall lawsuits filed in the state in the wake of the Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II hip stem recall. According to the Court’s January 15th Order, all pending and future Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II hip implant recall lawsuits will be transferred to Bergen County Superior Court, to be presided over by Judge Brian R. Martinotti. Court records show that at least 81 Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II hip recall lawsuits have already been filed in the Stryker multicounty litigation. Judge Martinotti has scheduled the multicounty litigation’s next Status Conference for March 19th. (In re Stryker Rejuvenate Hip Stem and the ABG II Modular Hip Stem Litigation, No. 296)

Wright & Schulte LLC is offering free personal injury lawsuit consultations to individuals who suffered serious Stryker Rejuvenate Hip Problems due to the recalled Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II Modular-Neck Hip Stems, including:

  • Metallosis
  • Tissue death
  • Osteolysis
  • Damage to bone and tissue
  • Inflammation
  • Premature failure of the implant
  • Infection
  • Loosening of implant
  • Formation of pseudotumors

Stryker announced a global recall of its Rejuvenate and ABG II hip stems and stopped worldwide sales of the products in July 2012, after data indicated the metal hip stems were fretting and corroding at an unacceptably high rate. According to the company, some 20,000 hip stems involved in the Stryker hip implant recall were sold between their launch in 2009 and the recall announcement. Patients fitted with one of these recalled devices may experience pain, swelling or adverse local tissue reactions if their device is subject to fretting and/or corrosion.

According to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA), the metal ions shed from metal hip implants cans result in a reaction called metallosis, which will cause damage to bone and/or soft tissue surrounding the implant and joint, as well as implant loosening, device failure and the need for revision surgery. The FDA has also warned that debris shed from metal hip implant components will enter the bloodstream and travel to other parts of the body, where it may cause systemic reactions in other tissue and organs.

Stryker announced earlier this year that Broadspire Services, Inc., a third-party claims administrator, will handle reimbursement for testing, revision surgery, and out-of-pocket expenses relating to the Rejuvenate and ABG II recall. However, because any information disclosed in the process of filing a claim with Broadspire could be used in future Stryker hip implant lawsuits, Wright & Schulte LLC is recommending affected patients speak with an attorney before they communicate with Broadspire in any way, to ensure their legal rights are protected.
