Global Settlement Reached in Stryker Hip Replacement Lawsuits

November 3, 2014Stryker Orthopaedics has agreed to pay at least $1.43 billion to settle lawsuits brought by patients who allege injuries from defective metal-on-metal hip devices. The global settlement resolves claims involving the Rejuvenate and ABG II modular hip implants manufactured by Stryker Orthopaedics.

 

Stryker Settlement Discussions

December 23, 2013—Mediations in six lawsuits have resulted in settlements in four Stryker hip replacement cases. The early success has encouraged the parties to schedule additional mediations as discovery continues for the Stryker lawsuits consolidated in federal court and in New Jersey state court.

Stryker Rejuvenate Lawsuit

Stryker Announces Recall of Rejuvenate and ABG II Hip Replacement Devices

July 6, 2012—Stryker Orthopaedics announced a global recall of the Rejuvenate and ABG II modular-neck stems. The recall was prompted by reports of corrosion and fretting. Fretting describes a situation where corrosion is worsened due to abrasive wear. These conditions can cause pain and swelling in patients with the devices. Stryker has encouraged patients with the affected devices to contact their surgeons for an evaluation.

The announcement follows an April 2012 action by Stryker to recall the Rejuvenate device in Canada. It is not clear why the company allowed doctors to continue to implant the device in the United States when defects led it to suspend sales in Canada months earlier.

 

Dangers Associated With Metal-on-Metal Hip Implants

Metal-on-metal implants have been marketed as a more durable option than traditional hip devices that incorporate ceramic components. However, the safety of metal-on-metal implants has been scrutinized since the recall of the DePuy ASR hip device. The most prevalent problem is that the metal components can rub against each other, releasing chromium and cobalt into tissues and the bloodstream. This condition is referred to as metallosis.

Stryker Lawsuit

A study published in The Lancet reported failure rates of six percent in some metal-on-metal implants, versus only 1.7 to 2.3 percent in traditional implants. The researchers concluded that metal-on-metal have "poor implant survival compared with other options and should not be implanted."

The Stryker implants are not considered traditional metal-on-metal implants as they contain a ceramic cup. This means they do not place a metal ball against a metal socket. However, the devices place a metal femoral stem against a metal neck. Regular wear on the junction between these components can increase the risk of metallosis.
