Defects of hip implants presented at Orthopedic Surgeons meeting

Posted on February 8th, 2012 No Comments

Today, research on the defects associated with metal-on-metal hip implants like the DePuy ASR hip replacement is scheduled to be presented at this year’s American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons meeting in San Francisco.  Presentations included information from studies conducted by 21 metal-on-metal hip implant manufacturers.  Last year, the device makers were ordered to complete research into their products’ defects by the Food and Drug Administration.

One orthopedic surgeon said of the implants, “This is a serious problem in the USA.  Some implants have a worse record than others, but almost all the metal-on-metal implants have issues.”  Another noted that metal-on-metal implants are used much less than they used to be and stated, “It’s important for anyone with a metal-on-metal implant to follow up with their orthopedic surgeon.”  Hip replacement defects and failure are characterized by symptoms of swelling, pain, and limping.
