The Implants Have been Shown to Corrode
The stryker hip replacement recall devices that are now the basis for the filing of a class action suit were originally designed to make installation of the device surgically easier. However, the implants, which are made up of titanium, cobalt and chromium, have been shown to corrode and dispense small pieces of metal into the circulatory system and body tissues.
Metallosis: Some of the Primary Side Effects
In turn, this gradual disbursal of ore results in the condition of metallosis or metal poisoning. Patients affected by metallosis often experience such side effects as:
- Severe hip pain;
- Swelling in the area of the implant;
- Problems with sitting or walking; and
- Tumor development.
Take the Steps Necessary to Obtain the Legal Relief you Deserve
In addition, the cobalt in the implants can cause bone resorption and tissue death, both which have led to replacement surgeries. Again, the legal firm of Bernstein Liebhard LLP is providing free consultations for anyone who has received a Rejuvenate or ABG II hip implant or who has received a notice of recall in the mail.
Time is of the Essence
The stryker devices, which were recalled in July 2012, were a source of numerous complaints issued to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration or FDA. The lawsuit that has resulted from these complaints has indeed set a precedent in the field of hip implant procedures. Therefore, if you or anyone you know has experienced complications from getting a stryker implant, you need to make a call immediately to Bernstein Liebhard LLC at 1-877-779-1414 or fill out their online form today.
