This just in: the first Stryker hip recall lawsuit against Stryker Orthopaedics, manufacturer of the Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II hip implants, has officially been filed in the U.S.

The plaintiff, who filed the lawsuit on August 8, 2012 in New Jersey Superior Court in Bergen County, is alleging that the modular-neck stem she received shed metal debris into her bloodstream. The complication, which was caused by fretting and corrosion of the modular-neck hip stem, forced her to undergo revision surgery. She also developed pseudotumors, bone necrosis, and soft tissue problems due to metallosis as a result of complications.

This Stryker hip recall lawsuit was filed on the heels of a voluntary recall of the Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II modular-neck hip stems by Stryker Orthopaedics in July 2012.

If you have developed metal toxicity, had to undergo revision surgery and/or suffered from hip replacement failure as a result of the Stryker Orthopaedics-manufactured Stryker Rejuvenate or ABG II hip implants, you may be eligible to file a Stryker hip recall lawsuit.

Attorneys at Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm, are actively investigating claims on behalf of individuals who have experienced serious side effects as a result of being implanted with these recalled devices.
