Defective Hip Implant Lawyers
Stryker Hip Implant Litigation
Riley & Jackson is accepting new clients who have been injured as a result of a recalled Stryker Modular Hip Implant. Riley & Jackson currently represents patients injured by these defective hip implants and whose claims have settled as part of a national settlement program. Our attorneys are continuing to accept as clients those injured by Stryker’s defective hips and are working cases towards litigation or a possible Round 2 of settlements.
Stryker issued a recall of its Rejuvenate and ABG II modular-neck stems in June, 2012. Stryker’s defective metal-on-metal design caused fretting and corrosion at the modular-neck junction, which in turn caused adverse local tissue reactions and pain or swelling at or around the hip. Many patients have experienced severe pain or have been diagnosed with metallosis as a result of this defect. Patients who still have a recalled Stryker hip and who have unresolved pain or metallosis will likely need an additional surgery to have the hip implant removed.
Numerous injuries and complications can occur with a recalled Stryker Modular Hip Implant. These complications include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Revision surgery to remove and replace the hip implant
- Higher than normal blood levels of cobalt or chromium (“metallosis”)
- Adverse Local Tissue Reaction (ALTR)
- Aseptic Lymphocyte-dominated Vasculitis-Association Lesion (ALVAL)
- Debridement or removal of pseudotumors
- Foot Drop
- Pulmonary Embolism or Deep Vein Thrombosis
- Myocardial Infarction
