Metal-on-Metal Hip Implant Failures

Handler, Henning & Rosenberg LLC Fights on Your Behalf

Metal-on-metal hip replacements were supposed to be a suitable replacement for similar devices that utilized ceramic and plastic. Companies like DePuy emphasized an increased shelf life and improved mobility over previous models. However, years later, a recall has been issued on such products and thousands of people worldwide are suffering the catastrophic impact of hip failure.

What was supposed to last 15 to 25 years with proper care is failing after less than five years in 1 out of every 8 patients. In the event of a device failure, the only treatment option is a painful corrective surgery that entails a lengthier rehabilitation process than the initial operation. Plus, the success rate of these second procedures is far less than the original. Let our firm help you. Handler, Henning & Rosenberg LLC is one of the largest firms in the area and can devote extensive time and resources to obtaining a positive outcome on behalf of our clients. Since 1922, our Pennsylvania defective medical device lawyers have won millions.

Metal Blood Poisoning & Symptoms of Hip Implant Failure

The FDA is looking into reports about the device causing metal particulates to enter the bloodstream. This can occur because components of a metal-on-metal hip implant rub against each other during use. This can create metal shavings that make their way into the entire circulatory system. Right now, studies are being conducted to look into the risks of heightened levels of metal in the blood. Initial findings suggest this metal blood poisoning is linked with muscle damage, swelling, and non-cancerous tumors.

How can you tell if your hip implant has failed? Possible symptoms:

  • Groin, hip, or leg pain
  • Swelling in the area of the prosthetic
  • A decrease in mobility or a noticeable limp
