Have you or someone you know experienced a hip replacement in the last few years? According to the CDC, there have been 327,000 hip replacement surgeries in the United States. You should be aware that the Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II Hip Implants have been linked to an increased risk of metallosis as well as high early failure rates. Many people who have been affected may want to seriously consider filing a lawsuit.
The Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II Hips
The Rejuvenate was granted FDA approval in 2008 and the ABG II received FDA approval in 2009, but only a few short years later in July of 2012, both were recalled. Although the ball and cup used on these replacement hips is typically made of ceramic and polyethylene, the artificial hips don’t technically qualify as metal-on-metal. However, the stem and neck are made out of metal, which means that all recipients of these implants should have received a recall letter.
