Significant scientific research and a number of adverse event reports have brought to light the fact that the metal-on-metal construction of the Wright Conserve artificial hip joints can lead to serious injury and early hip implant failure. Patients suffered pain, immobility, or even hip implant revision surgery after being fitted with a potentially defective Wright Conserve hip.
The Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II are popular hip replacement implants. However, as a result of a faulty metal-on-metal design, these two models of Stryker hip joints have been recalled. This does not help the thousands of patients who have already suffered or have undergone (or will need to undergo) hip replacement revision surgery to replace the faulty implants.
