Once an innovative new technology growing in worldwide popularity, metal-on-metal hip implants are now the subject of significant scrutiny, plagued by defective designs, device recalls and product liability lawsuits filed on behalf of patients requiring revision surgery to remove or replace the implant. The components used in metal-on-metal hip implants are all made of metal materials like cobalt and chromium, and were designed that way to reduce the chances of device dislocation or fracture, and to decrease the risk of the components becoming worn during everyday use. However, mounting research has identified an increased risk of serious side effects associated with all-metal hip implants, which has led to many of the devices being recalled in the United States. If you believe you have been adversely affected by a defective hip implant, contact an experienced hip implant attorney for legal help.

Side Effects of All-Metal Hip Implants

Among the side effects potentially linked to metal-on-metal hip implants like the recalled DePuy ASR replacement system are the following:

  • Metallosis (metal blood poisoning) caused by metal particles wearing off and entering the bloodstream
  • Damage to bone and/or tissue surrounding implant
  • Pain in the joint
  • Implant loosening and/or fracture
  • Device failure
  • Need for revision surgery

If you have experienced any of these side effects, and you believe a dangerous metal-on-metal hip implant to be the cause, fill out the free case review form to discuss your legal options with a defective hip implant lawyer.
