YOU MAY HAVE A CLAIM AGAINST STRYKER IF YOUR ORTHOPAEDIC SURGEON UTILIZED THIS PRODUCT.
The Law Firm of Killian & Boyd has been involved in the litigation of Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II modular-neck hip stem cases for several years and has resolved many of those cases and continues to accept and handle defective product cases against Stryker Orthopaedics.
Recently, Stryker Orthopaedics notified surgeons that it is voluntarily recalling certain lots and sizes of its LFIT Anatomic COCR V40 Femoral Heads because of serious health risks to patients. These products are different products than the earlier recalled Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II modular-neck hip stem devices. Many people who were implanted with the FIT Anatomic COCR V40 Femoral Heads system have experienced debilitating pain and toxic levels of cobalt and chromium in their bodies, much like the symptoms in the Rejuvenate and ABG cases. A second hip revision surgery is needed to remove these devices because of painful and potentially life threatening defects in their design.
Physicians began sending notices to their patients in late September 2016. If your physician has notified you that this dangerous product was used in your surgery, you should act immediately to protect your rights and your health.
Killian & Boyd is accepting LFIT Anatomic COCR V40 Femoral Heads cases on a contingency fee basis. We will investigate the claim, and take all necessary steps to protect your rights in this serious situation.
Stryker LFIT V40 Femoral Head Defects
After Stryker marketed these devices to surgeons, numerous reports of catastrophic failures became known. The cobalt and chromium heads of the LFIT V40 began corroding to the point that the head and femoral stem would come apart. This condition is now referred to as “spontaneous dissociation.” The head or “ball” and the femoral stem should immediately be removed to protect the patient’s health if this condition occurs, or if pain and or cobalt and chromium levels are elevated, even if the condition of spontaneous dissociation has not occurred.
The corroding implant releases metal ions (cobalt and chromium) into the patient’s body, much the same way as the Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG devices. These metal particles trigger the body’s immune response leading to metallosis, or metal poisoning. Metallosis can cause systemic injury in patients, which is why hip revision surgery is required to remove the devices and rid the body of toxic metals.

FAULTY Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II Hip Replacement Products
Litigation involving metal-on-metal hip replacement products against various manufacturers, including Stryker Corporation, has begun. In July 2012, the Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II modular-neck hip stems were recalled. The recalled hip stems were used in conjunction with either metal or ceramic hip implants. The components of the hip replacement system are metal-on-metal modular junctions, which can wear or corrode and cause toxic metal debris (cobalt and chromium) to be released into the bloodstream, sometimes referred to as metallosis. The patient can get a simple blood test to determine whether there are increased levels of cobalt and chromium in the bloodstream. Metallosis can result in pain, inflammation, swelling, tissue damage, necrosis and other injuries in and around the hip replacement site. Many patients must undergo revision surgery, which involves removing the recalled Stryker components.
Killian & Boyd, P.C. is presently representing numerous individuals in pending claims against Stryker Corporation, involving the recalled Rejuvenate and ABG II hip replacement components. If you or a loved one believe you have suffered serious injuries as a result of one of these hip implant devices, or your physician has recommended revision surgery to remove the defective product, contact Killian & Boyd, P.C., for a free consultation.
