SAN DIEGO, July 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Gomez Law Firm has launched a new website, http://www.strykerhiplawsuit.net/, as it is now representing victims of defective Stryker hip replacement systems. Individuals who have received the Stryker Rejuvenate Modular Hip System or the Stryker ABG II Modular-Neck Hip system have a timeline of two years to file a lawsuit for symptoms caused by this device they may suffer now or at some point in the future. Stryker has issued a voluntary recall of its Rejuvenate Modular Hip System and its ABG II Modular-Neck Hip Stem. The voluntary recall was initiated due to the potential risks associated with modular-neck stems, including the potential for fretting and/or corrosion at or about the modular-neck junction, which may result in adverse local tissue reactions manifesting with pain and/or swelling; corrosion and wear can damage surrounding tissue. Some patients may require a revision surgery to remove the defective device.
The Rejuvenate Modular Hip System was approved by the FDA in June 2008 as an extension to Stryker's Modular Hip System product line. The ABG II Modular Hip Stem was approved by the FDA in November 2009. The ABG II system was approved because it was substantially similar to other Stryker Modular Hip Systems. Patients have complained to the FDA about pain in the hip, difficulty climbing stairs and difficulty with hip flexion.
Stryker does not keep a record of the individuals who have received the Rejuvenate Modular Hip System or the ABG II Modular-Neck Hip Stem. The Gomez Law Firm is assisting patients in determining whether or not they have these recalled components.
