Effects of metal poisoning

Posted on May 13th, 2011 No Comments

The recall of the DePuy ASR XL hip replacement systems was done because the metal-on-metal hip system rubs against each other and results in the shredding of metal pieces that may enter the blood stream and cause blood poisoning.

The chromium and cobalt pieces that may enter the blood stream can cause serious illness. Symptoms from this poisoning can be muscle and joint pain, memory loss and confusion, nausea, headache,  and fatigue. If not treated, permanent damage to the kidney, liver or brain can occur.

If you or a loved one has been injured after receiving a DePuy hip replacement system, contact the DePuy hip recall lawyers of Williams Hart by calling 800-761-3187.
