In late June 2012, American applications of Stryker Orthopaedics' Rejuvenate and ABG II hip implant stems were voluntary recalled.

The two Stryker devices were initially recalled in Canada in late May 2012, following an Urgent Safety Alert directed to surgeons in United States and Canada in April 2012. The notice addressed concerns about the potential dangers of the hip stem systems.

What Causes Hip Implant Problems?

Initially approved by the Food and Drug Administration of the U.S. and Canada in June 2009, the hip joint replacement is constructed of TMZF alloy, a patented blend of metals specific to Stryker devices. The Rejuvenate and ABG II devices are press-fit implants, as compared to a cemented stem; the bone is drilled and an insert is hammered in place to accept the artificial hip stem.

The degradation of the metals and protective film can be attributed to a condition called Fretting Corrosion (Syrett & Wing, 1978). The surface of the artificial hip joint is gradually worn down by metal-on-metal contact, thus releasing the toxic combination of metals into the surrounding tissue.

The complications of metallosis can include the following:

While every individual's body may react differently to the Stryker hip implants, the degradation of the hip implant is presenting to be similar in most subjects, thus prompting Stryker to issue the voluntary recall.
