Transcript - Stryker - Metal Hip Implants Settlements
Metal hip implants have been linked to widespread, debilitating injuries such as tissue and organ damage, inflammation and metal poisoning. In 2012, Stryker Orthepedics, one of the world's leading medical technology companies, recalled two versions of their hip replacement devices: Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II. Made up of two components instead of the traditional single piece, these models are designed to give surgeons the ability to customize replacements based on the anatomy of their patients.
Stryker marketed these devices to patients stating that the replacement could last up to 20 years. Victims have filed over a thousand lawsuits, alleging that the implants were faulty, causing severe crippling pain that forced them to undergo revision surgeries for their removal. Victims also allege that Stryker was negligent in designing the devices and testing their safety. They also claim that Stryker failed to warn them about the device's dangers and even concealed information about the risk of serious injury.
Stryker Orthepedics settled five hip implant lawsuits in December of 2013 for an undisclosed amount. With over 20,000 Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II hips implanted before the 2012 recall, even more cases are expected to be filed.
