The Latest News In Stryker Hip Litigation
Stryker Hip Litigation Moving Forward
The Stryker Rejuvenate artificial hip system was created as a means of giving patients renewed flexibility in their hips so they could walk, run and engage in other physical activities with ease. Instead, as many as 20,000 people may have been implanted with a faulty hip replacement. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recalled the Stryker Rejuvenate hip replacement system in July of 2012. As a result, thousands of people have initiated Stryker hip litigation to be compensated for their additional injuries.
Serious Side Effects Associated with Stryker Rejuvenate
In the months prior to the recall, the FDA received 45 complaints of serious side effects from patients who had surgery to implant the Stryker Rejuvenate artificial hip. Many of these patients have gone on to file Stryker hip litigation lawsuits. In the year since its recall, the FDA and Stryker hip litigation attorneys continue to receive complaints about the Stryker Rejuvenate artificial hip. It has a high rate of failure, which means that some patients had to undergo a second surgery less than five years after the initial implant of the Stryker Rejuvenate hip. Some of the other reported symptoms include:
- Difficulty walking
- Pain at the implant site
- Swelling and inflammation
- Toxic metals entering the bloodstream. This is caused by friction from the metal parts rubbing together near the hip socket.
In May of 2013, The Stryker Corporation issued a statement urging anyone experiencing persistent pain as the result of hip replacement surgery to see a doctor immediately. The company further advised that doctors should perform the following tests for monitoring purposes and to rule out infection:
- Radiographic analysis
- Testing of serum metal ion levels
- Metal hypersensitivity testing
