Important Update: Stryker Recalls Stems of Hip Implants
The Michigan based medical device company Stryker in conjunction with its New Jersey based subsidiary Howmedica announced it was voluntarily recalling parts of its Rejuvenate and ABG II Hip Implants. The parts being recalled are the Stryker Rejuvenate Modular and ABGII modular hip stems. The recall was undertaken because of potential risks associated with its modular neck stems.
Stryker says the stems have the potential for “fretting and/or corrosion at or about the modular-neck junction, which may result in adverse local tissue reactions manifesting with pain and/or swelling.”
The Stryker implant, like some of those manufactured by DePuy and Zimmer, can generate metal debris or tiny particles of cobalt and chromium that comprise the implant. When the debris sloughs off into surrounding tissues or the bloodstream, it irritates the tissues and can lead to swelling and pain. Sometimes the tissue around the implant can react to these metal ions resulting in both tissue loss called tissue necrosis and cyst formation called pseudotumor or pseudocapsule formation. Once a patient starts to loose tissue and/or has an onset pseudotumor, that process does not resolve itself but only gets worse with time. Unfortunately, there are also serious systemic health related affects including compromise or involvement of the liver, kidney, eye-sight, hearing, heart related compromise and cancer. It is noteworthy, however, that unlike the DePuy ASR related metallosis process, which primarily involves bearing surface wear from the interface of the metal ball and inner part of the monoblock shell or cup, with the Stryker Rejuvinate and ABG II, the metallosis process comes from fretting and/or corrosion at the junction of the ball and stem called the trunion, taper neck junction or simply the neck. Unfortunately, for Stryker patients, it is thought now that the size of the particulate sloughing off the necks in the Stryker scenario is smaller or more nano-particulate which may be more insidious and toxic to patients than larger metal particles. This complicates matters when evaluating patients’ blood serum levels for cobalt and chromium. That is, it is thought by prominent members in the medical community that i.e. 5 parts per billion of cobalt or chromium from bearing surface wear is cause for concern and increased monitoring but that this same level of metal ion release from taper neck wear seen with the Stryker Rejuvinate or ABG II is exponentially more toxic.
The implants Stryker uses are made by Howmedica Osteonics Corporation. Stryker said the reported rate for need for further surgery associated with fretting or corrosion in the modular neck junction is less than 1 percent.
The hip is a ball and socket joint. A hip implant is composed of two principal parts: the stem, which fits into the patient’s thigh bone and is topped by a ball and a cup, which fits into the patient’s hip socket and holds the ball of the stem.
If you or someone you love has needed revision surgery because of problems with your hip implant, the personal injury lawyers at the law firm of Aylstock, Witkin, Kreis & Overholtz can help you.
