Research Points to Significant Failure Rates of Metal Hip Implants

Litigation against medical device manufacturer Stryker alleges that several of the company’s metal-on-metal hip replacement systems are prone to failure and are causing patients serious medical complications. As The Legal Examiner reports, metal-on-metal implants such as Stryker’s Rejuvenate and ABG II units can deteriorate over time and create metal debris, which can cause inflammation or tissue injuries. This deterioration can also lead to the premature failure of the replacement joint.

Research also indicates that, compared to other artificial hip replacement systems, metal-on-metal units are significantly more likely to fail. One study published in the New England Journal of Medicine observed failure rates that were as much as triple those of other systems. Not surprisingly, metal-on-metal units produced by Stryker and other companies, including DePuy, Wright Medical and Biomet, have been cited in numerous product liability lawsuits.

How a Nevada Stryker Rejuvenate Lawyer Can Help

Device makers have a duty to provide safe products. If there are risks of harm associated with their products, they also must provide adequate warnings. If a device maker fails to fulfill this duty, it could be held liable in lawsuits for injuries that may result.
