AVAL and Metal Particle Shavings

An aseptic lymphocyte dominated vasculitis associated lesion, also known as AVAL, is a tissue reaction to the metal particles and ions generated by the movement of metal components against one another, such as in knee or hip replacements. Most often, this abnormal movement is caused by an incorrect placement of a portion of the device, resulting in additional wear of the metal components. This metal debris can create an adverse reaction, causing possible damage to the bones, muscles and nerves around the hip, as well as pain and swelling around the joint. Any amount of metal debris can significantly impact soft tissue and develop into severe health problems. Some doctors also refer to this tissue reaction as a pseudotumor and melatosis.

Legal Help for AVAL Victims

Victims of injuries like AVAL are not at fault. As patients, we are often unwillingly subjected to the decisions and deceptive practices of product manufacturing companies, which provide us with the products we use on a daily basis. Unfortunately, the misleading practices of these manufacturing companies can cause us extreme pain and suffering. Victims of an aseptic lymphocyte dominated vasculitis associated lesion as a result of a defective product should consider how a lawsuit may help them. If you have suffered from AVAL as a result of a defective implant, contact an experienced attorney as you may be entitled to compensation for their injuries. A qualified lawyer will have the knowledge and tools necessary to provide competent legal advice and help guide you through the courtroom process.
