About Stryker Hip Implants
Stryker Pharmaceuticals is responsible for creating numerous metal-on-metal hip implant models to be used in hip replacement surgeries in the U.S. After receiving health warnings and incriminating data from the FDA and other health organizations, Stryker issued recalls for 3 implant models. The Rejuvenate Modular, ABG II Modular-Neck Hip Stems, and the LFIT V40 CoCr Femoral Heads have all been recalled, though 7 Stryker models have received health warnings from various institutions.
Symptoms of Potentially Dangerous Reactions
As with other metal-on-metal implants, the danger stems from the rubbing of metal sockets against metal joints, sometimes causing the metal to leak into the bloodstream. The releasing of metal shards can be extremely painful and toxic and could increase the concentration of metal ions in the blood. The metal rubbing may also lead to the corrosion and breakdown of the femoral heads of the hip implants. These problems are likely to lead to other, more serious issues.
Negative side effects may include:
- Severe pain
- Swelling and inflammation
- Loss of mobility
- Skin rash
- Joint instability
- Joint dislocation
- Metal poisoning
- Tissue and bone death
Many of those harmed by the Stryker implants have also required revision surgeries to amend deterioration and fretting of the faulty implant.
