worst victims". These surgeries and revision surgeries take a huge toll"."We are also concerned about the increased rate of complications with women. She continues" "The FDA has reported a list of risk factors that include; being overweight, Physically active, Being a female, have sensitivity to certain metals, have a suppressed immune system, have kidney failure, or are taking corticosteroids. We expect 1000's of Stryker Hip replacement lawsuits"
The medical social worker continues;" We agree with the FDA's recommendations that orthopedic surgeons evaluate hip implant patients periodically for signs of possible device failure."" We also suggest recipients check for cobalt and chromium toxicity levels due to the metal components"."This includes the Rejuvenate Modular Primary Hip System and Rejuvenate Total Hip System which have been recalled due to possible side effects similar to those seen in metal-on-metal hip implants."
The Stryker Hip Replacement Helpline Reports that on July 4, 2012, Stryker issued a voluntary product recall of its Rejuvenate Modular and ABG II modular-neck hip stems. According to Stryker, the recall was initiated due to the potential risks associated with modular-neck stems, including fretting and/or corrosion at or around the modular-neck junction.The medical social worker adds" This can lead to pain and/or swelling at the joint"
