Stryker Rejuvenate and AGB II Hip Replacement Devices
Seek Compensation for Your Injuries!
The Stryker Rejuvenate and AGB II Hip Replacement devices are part of a class of metal-on-metal hip replacement devices. These and other metal-on-metal hip implant products were marketed to provide a longer-term solution than traditional ceramic hip implants. However, when the metal pieces of the replacement joints rub together, the metal can begin to corrode, causing significant health problems for patients. The hip implant devices have a high failure rate and revision surgery is often necessary.
Although the Stryker Rejuvenate and AGB II Hip Replacement devices have been voluntarily recalled, thousands of patients throughout the United States and worldwide have suffered severe adverse health consequences. Patients who have developed complications and/or been forced to undergo revision surgeries have begun pursuing legal claims against Stryker, the device manufacturer.

Stryker Rejuvenate and AGB II Hip Replacement Complications and Side Effects
Stryker’s metal-on-metal hip implant products were brought to market under 501(K) clearance rules, which allow medical devices to be sold with limited clinical testing provided they are substantially similar to existing products already approved by the FDA. Unfortunately, Stryker’s Rejuvenate and AGB II hip replacement systems have failed to live up to the marketing promises made by the manufacturer and have proved to be unsafe for patients. When the metal-on-metal replacement joint products rub against each other in the body, corrosion can occur that causes painful and debilitating side effects.
The harm caused by Stryker hip replacements can include:
- Damage to body tissue including tissue necrosis;
- Bone necrosis or bone dissolution (osteolysis);
- A build-up of fluid in the joint;
- Synovial membrane inflammation;
- Problems standing or walking;
- Irritation or severe pain in the groin or hips;
- Tumors or pseudo-tumors;
- Metallosis (excess cobalt and chromium in the blood);
- A decrease in CD8+T cells or lymphocytic cells;
- Chromosomal aberrations.
These complications can be life-threatening and patients may need to undergo one or more revision surgeries. Injured patients often face significant pain and medical expenses.
