Are metal poisoning and metallosis the same thing?

Metal poisoning and metallosis refer to two separate medical conditions, both of which may result from a defective DePuy ASR hip replacement implant. Metal poisoning is widespread in the body and typically harms an organ system, such as the nervous system, respiratory system, or pulmonary system.

Metallosis, on the other hand, is concentrated in one area of the body and occurs when pieces of metal embed themselves in soft tissue, causing the affected tissue to become inflamed. This causes swelling and discomfort in the affected area, but the condition usually is not life-threatening.

Both metal poisoning and metallosis are known to be dangerous side effects associated with DePuy ASR hip replacement systems. If you have suffered either condition after receiving an implant, contact the DePuy lawsuit attorneys of Williams Hart today at 800-761-3187.
