Stryker hip implants are artificial joints that are designed to resemble a normal, healthy joint. Designed for those people who are experiencing debilitating pain in the hip, which cannot be relieved through other methods, including physical therapy and corticosteroid injections, Stryker hip implants are used in invasive hip replacement surgeries. While some implant procedures may go as planned, others leave patients facing an array of complications. In fact, lawsuits have been filed against Stryker Corp. alleging hip implant defects.
The Problems with Stryker Hip Implants
Stryker recalled two of its hip implants models. These were recalled due to complications with the devices that led to corrosion of the artificial joints, early deterioration, and numerous patient adverse effects, including:
- Tissue and bone death;
- Necessity of a correctional surgery;
- Metal poisoning;
- Immobility; and
- Severe allergic reaction.
The Stryker Accolade hip suits are filed in the courtroom where suits are pending over issues with ABG II hip replacements and the Stryker Rejuvenate. All these were remembered in July 2012 which they fret, might corrode and neglect in a couple of years. Unlike implants which feature a femoral part, the Stryker Rejuvenate hip implant includes 2 pieces that fit to permit the surgeon. This layout was associated with an increased probability since the neck rubs from the titanium femoral stem of issues that might come from the discharge of metallic debris.
