The Stryker Rejuvenate system, released in February of 2010, is just the latest hip replacement to fail, causing disastrous side effects which can ultimately lead to permanent tissue and bone damage, as well as heavy metal poisoning. 

According to a study released in April of 2012 published in the Journal of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (J AM Acad Orthop Surg 2012;20:214-222), corrosion remains the chief culprit in the failure of modular implants. The study authors set forth that the problem lies in the stem of the device, which is driven into the thigh bone and is meant to be implanted permanently. Warriner reports that removing the stem when the device fails is like "trying to get a piece of rebar out of concrete."

These problems led Stryker to issue an Urgent Safety Alert in April 2012 to warn Surgeons about the difficult nature of these implants that have resulted in corrosion and related problems at the modular sites.
