Law Offices Of John David Hart: Stryker Hip Implant Failures Leads To Lawsuit

 

FORT WORTH, Texas, Sept. 9. 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- A woman recently filed suit against Howmedica Osteonics Corporation d/b/a Stryker Orthopaedics seeking compensation for injuries caused by the failures of her Stryker Rejuvenate Hip Systems for both her left and right hips.  John David Hart of the Law Offices of John David Hart and Ellen Relkin of Weitz & Luxenberg, are the attorneys representing this Plaintiff in the lawsuit filed in the Superior Court of New Jersey, Law Division: Bergen County.



The Stryker Rejuvenate is a modular design hip replacement system that utilizes a titanium neck with a cobalt chromium (CoCr) stem. Unlike other defective metal-on-metal hip replacement systems, the Rejuvenate does not contain metal-on-metal ball and socket components. However, because of the metal-on-metal modular-neck design, patients are still exposed to the risks associated with metal-on-metal articulation. Patients with the Rejuvenate system are reporting many of the same complications as patients with other metal-on-metal hip replacement systems. The Rejuvenate was marketed as providing enhanced stability and flexibility by allowing surgeons to closely match the biomechanics of each patient and by reducing the risk of dislocations and costly revision surgeries.

On July 6, 2012 Stryker voluntarily recalled its Rejuvenate and ABG II modular-neck systems because of complications due to fretting and corrosion at the modular-neck junction. Patients reported complications similar to those seen with other defective metal-on-metal hip replacements including: swelling of the hip and groin, bone staining, nerve, muscle and tissue damage, hip, groin and leg pain and elevated metal ion levels in the bloodstream.

"Many patients have filed lawsuits after their Stryker hip devices failed," said attorney John David Hart.  "The number of people affected by these unsafe devices continues to grow.  We will continue to aggressively seek just and fair compensation for our clients that have been injured as a result of these defective medical devices."
