Physician Information About The Stryker Recall

In June 2012, Stryker initiated a voluntary recall of its Rejuvenate and ABG II modular-neck hip stems. While modular-neck hip stems provide surgeons with an option to correct certain aspects of a patient’s anatomy and hip biomechanics, we decided to voluntarily recall these modular-neck hip systems due to the potential for fretting and corrosion at the modular-neck junction which may result in ALTR (adverse local tissue reactions), as well as possible pain and/or swelling at or around the hip.

Surgeon were advised to consider performing a clinical examination, such as blood work and cross section imaging on all patients who received a Rejuvenate or ABG II modular-neck hip stem regardless of whether a patient is experiencing pain and/or swelling. Repeat follow-up examination, such as blood work and cross section imaging, should be considered even in the presence of normal initial findings. You are advised to get further information regarding patient follow-up by reviewing the Product Recall Update.
