Stryker Rejuvenate and AEG II Hip Implant Litigation
Forty-one lawsuits claiming injury against the makers of Stryker Rejuvenate and Stryker AEG II total hip replacement systems have been consolidated and transferred by the United States Judicial Panel on multidistrict litigation to the U.S. District Court of Minnesota. Stryker Orthopedics issued a recall of its Rejuvenate and AEG II modular-neck stems in July 2012. For those patients who received metal-on-metal hip replacements, they may file lawsuits against the manufacturers for money damages related to their injuries.
Some of the more common complaints of pain include those who suffer radiating pain into the groin and back. Others have complained about difficulty standing or walking and a necrosis of body tissue, bone and soft tissue damage. Because of the metallic substance in the blood stream, some of those with these implants have suffered metallosis, elevated cobalt or chromium levels in the blood.
In addition, recipients of the Stryker hip implant have suffered from implant loosening, destruction of cells, ostelysis, device failure, and the need for additional revision surgeries to correct or replace the hip implant.
