Background: How Stryker Hip Implants Work

Comprised of several neck and stem components, Stryker hip implants include the:

  • Rejuvenate system, which includes 6 stems and 16 necks – These implants were commonly marketed to younger patients.
  • ABG II system, which includes 8 right stems, 8 left stems and 10 modular necks – These implants were intended to offer more stability while putting less stress on the surrounding bones.

Stryker’s Rejuvenate and ABG II systems were designed to have interchangeable parts so that the devices could be custom-fit to the needs of a given patient. These hip replacement systems have been implanted in patients suffering from a range of conditions, like (but not limited to):

  • Bone tumors
  • Hip fractures
  • Osteonecrosis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis.

While the neck components of Stryker’s Rejuvenate and ABG II systems are made of chromium and cobalt, the stem components are made of titanium-coated steel. This titanium is a proprietary alloy (known as TMZF), blending titanium with iron, molybdenum and zirconium.

More common and minor side effects associated with hip replacement surgery and implant include inflammation, blood clots, hip pain and hip stiffness. These complications are typically treated with a combination of physical therapy and medication.
