On July 6, 2012 the medical device manufacturer Stryker announced the recall of its Rejuvenate and ABG II modular-neck hip stems. These hip implant devices were intended to provide surgeons with an option to correct certain aspects of a patient’s anatomy and hip biomechanics. However, the high failure rate of the device coupled with the risks associated with fretting and corrosion at the modular neck junction forced Stryker to cease production and recall these devices.
