The Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery has been leading the way in publishing detailed research that reveals the alarmingly high rates of Stryker hip implant failures. The Journal has published a total of four research studies tracking adverse local tissue reaction and corrosion caused by Stryker hip implants from May 2013 to March 2014. What is most troubling about these research studies is that they feature expert researchers who were once former paid Stryker consultants. Individuals who were once paid to create Stryker hip implants are now speaking out against the dangers and risks associated with the hip implants.
The most recent research study, “Early Corrosion-Related Failure of the Rejuvenate Modular Total Hip Replacement,” has discovered that pain and high Co serum levels in hip implant patients were strong predictors of the need for a revision surgery. Leading the research panel was Dr. Stephen J. Incavo, MD, an individual who once implanted over 100 Stryker Rejuvenate hips. Dr. Incavo also served as a paid Stryker consultant during the time in which he implanted these hips. Ultimately, the research study concluded that the high rate of corrosion-related revision with Stryker Rejuvenate neck stems was “striking.” In other words, the Stryker Rejuvenate hip implants have a tendency to corrode and release metal ions into the bloodstream.
