Rapoport Law Offices, P.C., Files Another Lawsuit Based on Failure of the Stryker Rejuvenate Modular Hip System

May 5, 2014

Rapoport Weisberg & Sims P.C. has filed another product liability lawsuit against medical device maker Howmedica Osteonics Corp., doing business as Stryker Orthopaedics, along with Stryker Corp., Stryker Sales Corporation and Stryker Ireland Limited, in the U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota. According to the lawsuit, Stryker designed, manufactured and sold a defective medical device, the Rejuvenate Modular Hip System, which was implanted into the body of the firm’s 57-year-old client, causing injury. The Rejuvenate system is a metal-on-metal hip implant with a chrome-cobalt modular neck inserted into a titanium femoral stem. Marketing materials claimed the Rejuvenate system was tested and proven to resist fretting and corrosion, which cause heavy metal contamination and device failures. However, the Rejuvenate system was ultimately recalled in the United States on July 6, 2012 because of fretting and corrosion. The lawsuit alleges Stryker marketed, sold and profited from the defective Rejuvenate system, failed to warn surgeons and the medical community of the dangers it knew about, and Stryker’s conduct was negligent, fraudulent and deceptive.
