Orthopedic device manufacturer Stryker Orthopaedics has recalled two of its hip implant models over concerns the devices are prone to “fretting and corrosion” that could trigger pain, swelling, and other complications in patients. The recall involves Stryker’s Rejuvenate Modular and ABG II modular-neck stem devices, devices that incorporate a femoral stem and femoral head ball connection that are both made of metal. Stryker advises patients who have been implanted with one of the recalled devices to contact their physician. Meanwhile, the company has stopped global production of the devices.
