Doctor studies all-metal hip implant failure rate

Posted on November 21st, 2011 No Comments

A doctor and researcher in the United Kingdom recently conducted a study into the failure rate of metal-on-metal hip implants.  The results of his study were presented at the combined British Orthopaedic Association and Irish Orthopaedic Association meeting this year.

182 hip replacement patients were examined in the study for a mean length of time of 62 months.  17 of the patients, or 8.6 percent, had undergone revision surgeries at the time of the presentation.  14 other patients in the study were waiting to have revision surgeries.

68 percent of the patients who experienced hip implant failure and needed revision surgery were women.  Researchers found that pain near the hip was an extreme indicator of hip implant failure in patients with all-metal hip replacements.
