Stryker Orthopaedics has announced that it has reached a settlement with plaintiffs in both federal multidistrict litigation and New Jersey multicounty litigation over injury claims relating to Rejuvenate and ABG II hip implants. The settlement will compensate eligible U.S. patients who had surgery to replace their hip stems (known as revision surgery) prior to December 19, 2016.
The settlement follows an earlier 2014 settlement program that covered patients who had undergone revision surgery before November 3, 2014. In that earlier program over 95% of eligible patients enrolled. Under Stryker’s newly announced agreement, additional patients are now eligible to participate and may apply for compensation.
While the settlement will resolve numerous Rejuvenate and ABG II injury cases across the U.S., some lawsuits will remain and Stryker will continue to defend against these remaining claims.
