The Stryker ABG II modular-neck stem used for total hip replacement surgery and Stryker Rejuvinate modular-neck stem hip implant were recalled on July 4, 2012 because the metal of the neck and stem can corrode, releasing toxic metal ions that can damage tissue and bones around the hip implant. This can cause severe pain, inflammation, metal poisoning (metallosis from chromium and cobalt), tissue death (necrosis), bone damage, pseudotumers, gait issues, and other serious problems. " It is the revision surgery to remove and replace the recalled Stryker hip that causes seniors weeks of pain and recuperation as well as time in rehabilitation facilities away form home".
Stryker Hip Replacement Lawyers and the DePuy Hip Replacement Helpline has launched a helpline for seniors of a failed Stryker hip implant. "On addition to the pain there is the potential for cobalt and chromium poisoning from the metal components". Says the MSW
