Flood Law Group Now Available to Investigate Claims related to Recalled Stryker Hip Implants
Flood Law Group, a national personal injury law firm, released a statement today announcing that it is available to investigate claims on behalf of persons who may have suffered an injury as a result of the recalled Stryker metal hip implants. A recent study published in the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery found that nearly almost half of patients who received the implants had elevated metal ion levels in their blood.

Flood Law Group announced today that its personal injury lawyers are now available to investigate claims on behalf of anyone who has had revision surgery possibly as a result of complications after receiving a metal hip implant such as the recalled Stryker Rejuvenate modular-neck stem implant.
In July of 2012, Stryker Corp. issued a voluntary recall (Stryker Initiates Voluntary Product Recall of Modular-Neck Stems: Action Specific to Rejuvenate and ABG II Modular-Neck Stems, July 6, 2012) of the Rejuvenate and ABG II modular-neck stem hip implants amid concerns that the risks associated with fretting and corrosion at the modular neck joint of the implant were too great.
According to a study published in the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery (Early corrosion-related failure of the Rejuvenate modular total hip replacement, 3/19/2014), 48 percent of the total hip arthroplasties measured in the study resulted in elevated metal ion levels for the patients that received them.
According to the study, the rate of revision surgery administered to patients in the study who received modular hip implants was 28 percent. The study also states that those patients in the study who received a modular hip implant had the Kaplan-Meier survivorship (a measure of the life cycle of a product) of their devices measured at 40 percent after 4 years.
“Results from the study support what some of our clients have been alleging,” said Christopher Brown, Director of Communications at Flood Law Group. “Our attorneys are investigating Stryker hip implant claims on behalf of persons who have undergone revision surgery after receiving a Rejuvenate modular-neck stem implant.”
If you or a loved one has suffered medical complications from, or had to undergo revision surgery after receiving a recalled metal hip implant such as the Stryker Rejuvenate, contact the national personal injury law experts at Flood Law Group for a thorough investigation into your claim.
