UPDATE: On Nov. 4, 2014, Stryker Corp. agreed to pay approximately $1 billion to resolve lawsuits over the thousands of Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II Modular-Neck hip stem implants that were recalled in 2012. The deal is one of the highest amounts paid in the last year by an implant manufacturer to resolve claims by patients who believe they were injured as a result of a faulty implant.
In 2012, the Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II Modular-Neck hip stem implants were recalled because of the difficulties many patients experienced immediately after implantation. Swelling at the site of surgery, adverse reaction to the metals used in the implants and general pain were some of the most common issues associated with the devices.
Stryker’s Rejuvenate Modular System was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2008, and the FDA granted approval for the ABG Modular-Neck system the following year. The company issued a voluntary recall mainly related to corrosion of the implants’ metal-on-metal parts assisted by the mechanics of the device, which released poisonous ions of cobalt and chromium into the bone and surrounding tissues.
