Stryker Hip Recall Information: The Stryker hip recall occurred in July, 2012, and if you are a recipient of a Stryker recalled hip device (Rejuvenate or ABGII), then you have likely experienced some serious anxiety regarding the potentially defective hip implant in your body. At the time of the recall—and a few months earlier in an Urgent Field Safety Notification sent to surgeons and hospitals—Stryker admitted that the innovative designs of the Rejuvenate and ABGII were perhaps not as safe as originally claimed. The Rejuvenate garnered FDA approval in 2008 and the ABGII in 2009, however marketing for the two devices did not begin in earnest until 2010. Just a few short months later, adverse event reports began coming in to the FDA regarding problems experienced with the two hip implants.

 

Issues Associated With the Stryker Hip Recall

Surgeons claimed that when removed, a substance resembling black rust was seen on their patient’s explants, and that a milky white substance was also seen in the tissues surrounding the implant. In short, the highly-touted hip implant which was supposed to last for 15-20 years and be much safer than other metal-on-metal hip implants was causing a considerable amount of problems among those implanted with the devices. Metallosis was seen in patients with a Rejuvenate or ABGII, with symptoms consisting of chronic pain, intense inflammation, degradation of hip tissue and bone, total failure of the hip implant and the necessity for revision surgery.

 

Microscopic chromium and cobalt ions were found to be shearing away from the hip implant during periods of activity, causing metallosis and metal toxicity. Metal toxicity and metal poisoning can lead to: neurological and cardiovascular issues, renal and thyroid problems, gastrointestinal issues, loss of hearing and vision, vertigo, anxiety, depression and irritability, DNA disruption, the development of pseudo-tumors, a propensity for certain types of cancers, reproductive disorders and chronic headaches.
