These systems can damage nerves and tissue surrounding the device. Some symptoms of a recalled hip replacement system include:
• Problems walking
• Moderate to severe pain
• Swelling around your hip
Take note that the following systems have all been recalled by Johnson and Johnson and DePuy Orthopedics:
- ASR™ XL Acetabular System
- ASR™ Hip Resurfacing System
- Stryker Rejuvenate
- Stryker ABG Modular – Neck Hip Stems
- Stryker Rejuvenate and Stryker ABG Modular – Neck Hip Stems have been recalled due to the increased possibility of metallosis. This is a result of premature loosening of the device and toxic metals released in the patient’s body.
