NEW YORK--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Wendy Fleishman of the national plaintiffs’ law firm Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein, LLP, announced that two new videos have been posted on YouTube addressing common concerns and questions asked by hip replacement patients who received notice of the recall of their Stryker Rejuvenate or Stryker ABG II hip implant.
"Upon receiving notice of the recall from your doctor, you must make an appointment with your doctor to have a blood screening done to determine if you have metallosis and if your doctor thinks it is appropriate to have radiological film studies done. Metallosis means an increase in metal debris in the tissue, fluid and blood around your hip implant that can be released from the fretting and corrosion of the hip implant itself. The levels of cobalt and chromium may be low, but your doctor will be able to determine if you need to replace the hip implant or a portion of it. We urge you to follow up with your doctor if you have any reason to believe that you may have been implanted with a recalled Stryker hip implant," stated Fleishman.
The videos cover the following topics:
Stryker Hip Recall Lawsuits Update: Wendy Fleishman provides an update on the Stryker hip component litigation relating to the Rejuvenate and ABG-II hip implants. The video includes information on federal and state court trials as well as recommendations for concerned hip implant recipients on specific medical testing.
Stryker Recall: First Steps to Take: Wendy Fleishman urges Stryker hip patients to see their doctor and get a blood test and possibly x-rays to check for metals that may have been released into their bloodstream by a faulty Stryker hip implant.
