Stryker Hip Implant Victims in Illinois
Stryker hip implants have been installed in patients in Illinois. If you received a hip implant in this area, it is possible you received the Stryker Rejuvenate or the Stryker ABG II. Many known issues continue to surface at the hands of these faulty devices, and even if you are asymptomatic, it could prove to be a problem at a later date.
Despite the fact that these two models were recalled in 2012, thousands of patients still have them in their body. They have shown a nearly-uniform tendency to cause blood toxicity, metallosis, tissue necrosis and severe pain.
Additionally, the revision surgery to correct the issue is equally traumatic, causing its own set of issues. The hip stem component in these models was originally installed to be a permanent fixture. The procedure necessary to remove this stem results in pain, higher incidence of hip dislocation, bone fracture, and increased need for rehabilitation.
