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.
