What type of design flaws are believed to cause problems in patients with a Stryker ABG II Modular Hip?

NOTICE: The Drug Law Center is no longer accepting these type of cases. This page is strictly for informational purposes. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding by not contacting our office on these cases. We are actively investigating and prosecuting cases involving Valsartan cancers. For information on Valsartan lawsuits, look here.

Unlike the popularized DePuy ASR hip replacement products that have been widely criticized in relation to an all-metal design (metal for the ball and socket), the Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II is made of plastics, ceramics and metal to mimic the natural hip movement. However, the ABG II neck-stem joint still uses metal-on-metal parts to secure the hip in place.

Most problems with the Stryker ABG II Modular Hip System are believed to derive from the metal-on-metal connection which has been associated with a series of problems including:

  • Pain
  • Heavy metal poisoning
  • Pseudo tumors
  • Repeated dislocations
  • Revisionary sugery
