In July 2012, Stryker issued a press release with information about a voluntary recall of its Rejuvenate modular-neck stems and its ABG II modular-neck stems, both of which are hip replacement systems manufactured and marketed by Stryker. The medical device manufacturer made the decision to voluntarily recall the Rejuvenate and ABG II hip replacement systems due to reports of fretting and corrosion as well as severe inflammation of adjacent tissues.
In the Stryker recall press release, Stuart Simpson, Stryker’s Vice President and General Manager, Hip Reconstruction, states that, “given the potential risks associated with fretting and corrosion at the modular neck junction, Stryker Orthopaedics decided to take this voluntary action.”
If you or someone you love is currently experiencing pain or swelling in the hip area where a recent surgical procedure was conducted involving either the Rejuvenate Modular hip replacement system or the ABG II Modular hip replacement system, it is highly recommended that you or your loved one see your doctor immediately.
