The Stryker Rejuvinate and ABG II is another dangerous surgical implant that has a greater effect on women. The Yaz Bith Control Pills Helpline is extending it’s watch to all dangerous drugs and devices harming women.
Hip replacements like Stryker Rejuvinate and ABG II it has been noted seem to have a higher failure rate in women than in men. Women seem to be at a greater risk to to the smaller frame, shape of the v at the hip line and osteoporosis. In a research study financed by the FDA the results noted that women who have such operations, were 29 percent more likely than men to need a repeat operation within three years. The research was financed by the Food and Drug Administration.
“We were surprised by the results, as studies suggest that larger heads should have … lower wear and a lower risk of dislocation. However, we have seen an increase in revisions for pain and loosening, particularly in women,” says Alison Smith, a study author and statistician at the University of Bristol in the U.K. Depending on patient age and implant head size, the revision rate for all-metal hips is three to four times higher in women and two to three times higher in men compared with other implants.
The FDA Sights Women As on The List For At Risk
The Food and Drug Administration, along with its safety communication, has included a list of risk factors that can increase a patient’s chances of suffering from metal on metal hip implant complications. Patients who are overweight, female, or physically active are more likely to suffer complications related to these hip replacement systems, and patients who have a sensitivity to certain metals, have kidney failure, have a suppressed immune system, or take corticosteroids are also more at risk.
