FDA experiences surge in metal-on-metal hip implant complaints

Posted on August 23rd, 2011 No Comments

According to The New York Times, the Food and Drug Administration has experienced a dramatic surge in complaints concerning failed metal-on-metal hip implants like the DePuy ASR hip implant, after studies suggested that the artificial hips are dangerous and defective.

The FDA has received a total of more than 5,000 complaints about defective metal-on-metal hip implants this year.  This is more than the agency received over 2007 to 2010 combined.

The majority of complaints were from people who were needing to have a defective metal-on-metal hip implant replaced because it failed only a few years after being implanted.  Successful hip implants should last for around 15 years.

Experts predict that the defective metal-on-metal hip implants will become the largest ever product recall in the history of the U.S.  About 75 percent of the complaints made to the FDA concerned the DePuy ASR hip implant.
