Hip Implants - Stryker Hip Recall
Stryker Announces New Hip Recall
Stryker Orthopaedics voluntarily recalled its Rejuvenate and ABG IImodular neck hip implant stems on July 4, 2012. This voluntary recall was initiated due to widespread problems including pain, swelling, and tissue damage associated in patients with these metal-on-metal modular neck stems. According to Stryker, the risks include the potential for "fretting" and/or corrosion around the modular-neck junction which may result in adverse local tissue reactions. Post-market surveillance showed that a significant number of patients were having a premature failure of their hip. Patients with the recalled hip implant components should schedule an appointment with their orthopedic surgeon immediately if they are experiencing pain and/or swelling at the local joint site which may be a sign of a malfunctioning hip implant.
