Faulty hip replacements and other devices can carry serious risk and a report done on medical device surgeries showed that nearly 2,800 people died of faulty replacement surgeries in 2006.
A doctor at the Cleveland Clinic co-authored the study over faulty medical devices and stated that many think that when they undergo a surgery to have a device implanted, that the device has been tested and is without-a-doubt safe, but this is not always the case.
One example of this is the DePuy hip replacement system that had a large recall of nearly 93,000 hip devices. The artificial hip replacements were both metal products and they fail after the metal products rub together and cause metal to go into the bloodstream. This can lead to a plethora of medical issues including, hearing and eyesight issues and an increased cancer risk.
