Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG-II Hip Implant

I ask any patients who I speak to who believes they have received a Rejuvenate or ABG-II modular hip implant to get a blood test to check their chromium and cobalt. This blood test is important because the main reason why Stryker recalled the Rejuvenate and ABG-II modular hip implants is because they could be fretting and corroding. Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG-II Hip Implants: Why is the Cobalt-Chromium Blood Test so Important? It Is Important To Know If You Are Being Poisoned By Cobalt

If your Stryker Rejuvenate or ABG-II modular hip implant is fretting or corroding, there will be cobalt and/or chromium in your blood stream.

How Do I Read the Results of My Cobalt and Chromium Blood Test?

A guide for interpreting your results:

  • Under 3 parts per billion – there are only trace amounts in your system. There is no immediate threat to you, but you should be monitoring this closely.
  • Between 3 parts per billion and 5 parts per billion - you are not at immediate risk, however it is showing that cobalt is steadily getting in your system.
  • Between 5 parts per billion and 7 parts per billion - you need to start taking this serious as you are getting to unsafe levels.
  • Over 7 parts per billion - go see a doctor right away! You are in a dangerous range.
