maxine289 writes: "Recently, Stryker has become the object of the controversy when it pulled out another one of its products “Stryker Rejuvenate and Stryker ABG II” which thousands of complaints reached the company as well as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Patient complaints due to the pain of the hip area and there have been reports of popping and squeaking sounds which are the most common hip replacement system problems. The device has been linked to an increased risk of metallosis. Although the stryker rejuvenate is not a metal-on-metal hip device, it has metal-on-metal components, which believed to be responsible for the development of metallosis in some patients. According to reports, the stryker hip implant device is linked to a high early failure rate, resulting in some patients having revision surgery to replace their hip replacement devices."
