The implants were recalled due to corrosion and “fretting,” which can potentially cause fragments of the implant to travel to body tissue. This process can cause an adverse tissue reaction, as well as swelling around the hip. Stryker advised medical professionals to conduct a clinical exam on anyone who received a Stryker hip replacement during the affected timeframe.
