Metallosis

DePuy’s ASR line of hip implants was considered a breakthrough in medical technology when it was introduced in 2005. The ASR line was one of the first hip implant systems to implement a metal-on-metal design, which DePuy claimed would provide a more durable and functional implant.

Unfortunately, this metal-on-metal design may cause metallosis. If you or someone you love suffered metallosis after your DePuy ASR hip implant failed, contact the DePuy lawsuit lawyers of Williams Kherkher today at 800-761-3187.

The Dangers of Metallosis

Metallosis is a condition that occurs when metal flakes embed themselves in a person’s soft tissues. Unlike metal poisoning, the danger of metallosis is not the toxicity of the metal; instead, metallosis is dangerous because it may cause:

  • Severe inflammation
  • Loss of movement
  • Pain and skin rash

This condition is even more significant for hip implant patients because these resulting effects of metallosis may cause:

  • Bone fractures
  • Implant loosening
  • Implant dislocation
  • Nerve and tissue damage

Individuals who suffer metallosis may experience a permanent reduction in their range of motion. Often, faulty hip implants are to blame for this condition. DePuy’s ASR system is particularly likely to expose an individual to these risks because the metal-on-metal design causes metal to flake off.
