St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) February 22, 2013
The Onder Law Firm, which has consulted with thousands of people with recalled joint replacement systems and other joint replacement system claims, is providing a free consultation to those with Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG-II modular neck-stem hip replacement systems, which were recalled by Stryker Orthopaedics on July 6, 2012. The Stryker hip recall (fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm311043.htm) was issued voluntarily with a warning to those with the recalled Stryker hip systems that they potentially pose risks for fretting and corrosion at the modular-neck junction. The Rejuvenate hip replacement system, one of Stryker’s best-selling products, was introduced in 2010 and the ABG-II hip replacement system was used beginning in 2008. Both models utilize a metal component at the joint which, under normal wear, may produce minute metallic debris, known as fretting.
