Stryker hip implants have been found to cause a myriad of problems after it underwent a study showing that the implant could loosen or corrode.
The study discovered that Stryker hip implants could cause the following:
- Loosening of the implant
- Corrosion of the implant
- Metal debris released into the body
- Increased levels of chromium, cobalt, and titanium in a patient’s blood stream which can lead to metallosis
- Tissue necrosis (tissue death)
- Allergic responses
- Osteolysis (thinning or weakening of bones)
With the Stryker implants corroding, the metal that enters a patient’s blood stream is treated as a foreign object and the body cannot process it. This causes metallosis, which means a person’s blood stream has toxic levels of metal in it. This can lead to bone and tissue death along with severe pain.
To qualify for the settlement you must have undergone revision surgery prior to November 3, 2014. Stryker is reimbursing affected victims for testing, treatment, revision surgery, if necessary, and other out-of-pocket costs relating to this voluntary recall.
The deadline to submit a claim as a part of the global settlement is December 14, 2014, so please don’t hesitate to contact the Roanoke defective product attorneys at Kalfus & Nachman today.
