Pain may be a common occurrence after a hip replacement surgery, but it is important to know if there are complications that prolong a patient's pain due to defective metal hip implant devices. #hipreplacementrecall #painafterhipreplacement #metalhipimplant

Stryker began selling its Rejuvenate hip implant in 2009 and the ABG II hip implant in 2010. Two years later, Stryker recalled these artificial hips due to premature failure. Stryker did not conduct any clinical testing on the safety and effectiveness of the Rejuvenate and ABG II hip systems before selling the devices.

If you received a faulty Stryker hip implant, you may be eligible for compensation for the pain you suffered as well as your medical expenses and lost wages.

In the first case to proceed to trial involving the Pinnacle hip replacement manufactured by DePuy, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, evidence was introduced to show that J&J was aware as early as 2001 that the device could generate metal debris which enter the patient's bloodstream. #hipimplant #hiprepalcements

#Strykerhiprecallnews June 2012, #Stryker Corporation recalled its Rejuvenate Modular and ABG II modular-neck hip stems due to "fretting and/or corrosion" in the implant which may lead to an "adverse local tissue reaction, as well as possible pain and/or swelling, in or around your hip."

Hip Implant Recall

Shared publicly  - 
 
An estimated 500,000 patients in the United States have received metallic hip implants. While marketed by device manufacturers as more durable than earlier generation artificial implants using ceramic, plastic, and other materials, many recipients of all-metal hip implants have experienced the premature failure of their implants. As a result, the injured patients have had to undergo further painful and costly operations, called revision surgery, to remove the faulty metal implant and insert a new device.

Hip Replace Recall Legal Resources
Introduction
This Google+ page is sponsored by the national plaintiffs' law firm Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein, LLP:

Hip implants composed of all-metal surfaces have been failing at unprecedented rates compared to traditional artificial implants made of ceramics and plastic. These failures force hip implant patients to undergo costly, intrusive, and often painful revision surgery to correct the problems caused by their all-metal (also known as metal-on-metal) hip implants.

The manufacturers and devices included in recent lawsuits by patients who implant failed include:
  • The Stryker Rejuvenate
  • Stryker AGB II
  • Wright Profemur-Z hip system
  • DePuy Orthopaedics ASR XL Acetabular
  • DePuy ASR Hip Resurfacing system
  • certain DePuy Pinnacle hip implants
Metal Hip Recall & Lawsuits

Patients represented by Lieff Cabraser have filed lawsuits against DePuy, Stryker, Wright, and other manufacturers seeking compensation for pain, suffering, and other physical injuries, and the cost of replacement surgery and other financial difficulties as a result of the failure of their hip implants. The hip recall lawsuits charge that the manufacturers variously concealed the fact that their metal hip implants were defective and likely to suffer early failure from patients and physicians.
