Loosening of Hip Implants

When performing hip replacement surgeries, surgeons must ensure that they properly secure hip implants to an individual’s existing bones. Generally, implants are either press-fitted over existing femur and pelvis bones or cemented in place to ensure a good, tight fit.

Unfortunately, these implants can loosen over time, especially if the implants are defective. If you or someone you love suffered a hip implant loosening after having a DePuy ASR hip replacement system implant, contact the DePuy lawsuit lawyers of Williams Hart today at 800-761-3187.

Dangers Associated with Implant Loosening

Hip implants usually replace the ball and socket joint that comprises the hip. To ensure that these new joints stay in place, the implants must be attached to existing bones. This allows the hip implant to function like a real hip.

When a hip implant loosens, implant patients may be at risk for experiencing:

  • Severe pain
  • Loss of movement
  • Bone injury

To correct a loosened hip implant, individuals will usually have to undergo hip revision surgery. Sadly, revision surgery is rarely as effective as replacement surgery, and an individual may lose some of his or her range of motion after a revision. Defective hip implants like the DePuy ASR hip replacement system have been linked to a higher incidence of hip implant loosening and it may be appropriate to consider pursuing legal action against the manufacturer.
