STRYKER REJUVENATE and ABG II MODULAR HIP IMPLANT RECALL
Stryker began marketing its Rejuvenate Modular Primary Hip System in June 2008 stating the Rejuvenate hip implant provided enhanced stability, proven modularity and intra-operative flexibility. Stryker began marketing its ABG II Modular Hip System in November 2009 claiming its modular neck which was made from cobalt and chromium produced high resistance to corrosion and improved fatigue strength.
On July 6, 2012, Stryker announced a voluntary recall of its Rejuvenate and ABG II Modular Hip Systems because of complications associated with the modular neck stems. Fretting and corrosion which develops at the modular neck interface can lead to significant amounts of dangerous cobalt and chromium metal ions being released into the surrounding tissues and blood stream. These metal ions in the body can lead to serious medical problems such as tissue necrosis and psudotumor formation. These serious medical problems may force individuals to have to undergo another hip replacement surgery.
