MISSISSIPPI DEFECTIVE HIP IMPLANT LAWYERS
Stryker® Orthopedics Recalls Rejuvenate® and ABG™ II Modular-Neck Hip Stems
The recalled products are the Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II Modular Hip Stems. The hip systems were voluntarily recalled in July 2012. The FDA originally cleared the Rejuvenate for use in June 2008 while the ABG II was cleared in November 2009. The products were recalled because of the “potential risks associated with fretting and corrosion at the modular neck junction” which “may lead to adverse local tissue reactions.” An April 2012 article in the Journal of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons noted potential risks of modular-neck hip stems like the Rejuvenate®, noting that “[a]lthough modularity allows extensive intraoperative flexibility, several potential and confirmed disadvantages exist, including risk of fatigue fracture and corrosion and increased systemic exposure to metal ions and debris.”
