Metal Hip Replacement Complications

Patients who have received all-metal implants should be aware of the symptoms which may indicate that their device is not functioning properly.

Common symptoms include:

  • Regular and prolonged pain in the groin, hip, or leg;
  • Swelling at or near the hip joint; or
  • Numbness
  • A limp or a change in walking ability
  • Skin Rash
  • Thyroid Dysfunction
  • Metallosis/ Blood Poisoning
  • Neurological changes such as auditory or visual impairments

Key Problem with Metal Hip Implants

Friction created by the normal movement of the device causes the release of microscopic shavings and metal debris into surrounding tissue and blood. This can lead to a condition called metallosis, the build-up of metal debris in the soft tissues of the body, which is characterized by painful inflammatory reactions in body tissue and a high blood-metal count.

Tens of thousands of patients who received metal hip implants have suffered crippling tissue and muscle damage, debilitating pain after hip replacement surgery, and the premature failure of their hip replacement implants. As a result, these hip replacement patients have had to undergo additional, painful, and costly operations (known as revision surgery) to remove the faulty metal implants and insert new devices.

What Are Some of the Metal Hip Implants That Were Recalled or Taken Off the Market?

The DePuy ASR and certain DePuy Pinnacle, Stryker Rejuvenate and Stryker ABG II, Wright Profemur-Z hip system, and the Zimmer Durom Cup are all-metal implants or contain metal components which come in contact with each other, leading to friction that releases metallic particles. Some of these metal hip implants were eventually recalled, taken off the market, or had their sales suspended by the manufacturer. Contact us about your case.

My Hip Implant Has Failed and Was Replaced or Needs to Be Replaced. Am I Eligible For Payment Under One of the Settlements?

The answer may be yes, but we need to review the facts of your situation with you. We will need to know the manufacturer of the implant you received and can assist you in obtaining this information.
