Except for the stem of the device, the Stryker Rejuvenate is very similar to other metal-on-metal hip devices, such as DePuy, Biomet, and Zimmer. It was released in February of 2009, however Stryker did a voluntary recall in July of 2012 due to high failure rates and serious complications resulting from the device. The FDA discusses the recall as “A situation in which use of, or exposure to, a violative product may cause temporary or medically reversible adverse health consequences or where the probability of serious adverse health consequences is remote.”
What are some Stryker Rejuvenate Hip Replacement Complications?
The high failure rate of the Stryker hip implant was due to the many complications that arose after the device was implanted. These complications include:
