South Carolina Stryker Hip Recall Lawsuit Information

South Carolina Stryker Hip Recall LawsuitStryker Corporation received FDA approval for the Rejuvenate and ABG II modular neck stem hip replacement systems through the controversial 510(k) process, which bypasses pre-market testing requirements to fast track approval. Therefore, it has taken the suffering of individual hip replacement patients to notice a trend indicating higher than expected failure rates, resulting in the Stryker hip recall.

The hip replacement components that are included in this Stryker hip recall were marketed as being safer and more reliable than other similar products such as those recalled by Stryker Orthopaedics. In fact, the Stryker hip recall was prompted by the same types of complaints and concerns. The Stryker hip recall and the one from Stryker occurred because the products have been found to cause fretting and corrosion at the modular neck stem site. When metal debris is deposited into the hip joint, patients face a range of medical problems, including pain, inflammation, instability, and potentially even problems related to the toxic metals entering their bloodstream. Stryker hip recall lawsuits are being filed on behalf of people who have suffered from a failed Stryker hip replacement system, including those who have been forced to undergo a revision surgery as a result.

Stryker Lawsuits Set a Precedent

The Stryker hip recall is not the first of its kind; just two years ago, Stryker Orthopaedics recalled 93,000 hip replacement systems due to the metal parts' tendency to fret and corrode. Even before that recall was issued, there had been a number of lawsuits filed against the company over the problematic ASR line of hip replacement systems. Those lawsuits have alleged that Stryker Orthopaedics, Inc. manufactured a defective product, failed to warn patients and doctors of problems with the implant and negligence in designing, manufacturing and selling the product.
