There has been several residents in Tennessee suffering from apparent defective Stryker hip implants. Currently there are a significant number of Stryker recall lawsuits that continue to move forward. The Supreme Court in New Jersey is currently considering a request to consolidate litigation in New Jersey for all of the Stryker Rejuvenate lawsuits filed in the state. November 30th of 2012 was the last day the Acting Administrator of the Courts would accept comments or objections to the request.
According to the Stryker hip recall, the company announced its recall of the Rejuvenate and ABG II Modular Hip Stems on July 6, 2012, due to a potential risk for fretting and corrosion at the modular-neck junction. As much as 20,000 people have been affected by the implants that were sold before the recall. According to Stryker the Rejuvenate and ABG II Modular Hip Stems could develop adverse local tissue reactions which could result in pain or swelling for the people with the implants.
