About the Stryker Hip Recall: As a resident of Hawaii who has been harmed by a defective Stryker hip implant device—the Rejuvenate and ABGII were both recalled in July, 2012—it is important that you have a good understanding of the Hawaii Stryker hip statute of limitations. This statute of limitations can place restrictions on your ability to file a Hawaii Stryker hip lawsuit and recover damages for your injuries. The Rejuvenate hip system gained FDA approval in June, 2008, however marketing did not begin until February, 2010. The ABGIII received FDA approval in 2009, but was marketed with the Rejuvenate. These two hip implants were marketed aggressively with claims there would be no metallosis and metal toxicity associated with the devices due to the use of a ceramic ball rather than a metal ball.

 

Stryker also claimed that once implanted, the Rejuvenate and ABGII would last from 15-20 years. Unfortunately, despite the innovative modular design, the claims made by Stryker did not work out as expected. Within mere months of implantation, some patients began experiencing serious, adverse side effects. Some surgeons who removed the devices from their patients noted the presence of “black rust” on the removed implants as well as a milky substance in the hip tissues. Patients who received a Rejuvenate or ABGII were also submitting adverse event reports to the FDA, and by early 2012, over 300 such reports had been received.

 

Despite the serious nature of these reports, Stryker continued to sell the two devices, maintaining the implants were safe, until April, 2012 when the company issued an Urgent Field Safety Notification to hospitals and surgeons. This safety notice stated the Rejuvenate and ABGII were at a higher risk of fretting and corrosion, leading to the release of excess cobalt and chromium ions into the body. Stryker did, however, attempt to shift a fair amount of the blame onto patients and surgeons. Stryker stated patients who were overweight, had prior health issues, an infection or diabetes were more likely to experience complications and that some surgeons were not using proper implantation techniques.

 

How the Hawaii Stryker Hip Statute of Limitations Can Affect You

Hawaii—like many other states in the United States—operates under a two-year statute of limitations, beginning when the injury is first discovered, or should have been discovered. In order to accurately determine exactly when your statute of limitations begins and ends, it is imperative that you consult an experienced Hawaii Stryker hip lawyer who can offer you knowledgeable information for your specific circumstances. Over 1,700 Hawaii Stryker hip lawsuits have been filed at this time, and informed Stryker attorneys expect many more in the coming months. With a failure rate ranging from 8.1%-65% (depending on which study you read), even if you have yet to experience problems with your Rejuvenate or ABGII, there is a good chance you could. Don’t lose your right to recovery by exceeding the Hawaii Stryker hip statute of limitations—speaking to a Hawaii Stryker hip lawyer today is the only way to determine when the statute will run in your case.
