Recall occurs for another metal hip replacement system

Posted on June 25th, 2012 No Comments

Another manufacturer has announced the recall of their metal hip replacement system after officials with the company stated that they were not satisfied with the result of the product. The British-based company, Smith & Nepehew, is the fourth company that has recalled a metal-on-metal hip replacement.

Thiss type of hip replacement system was said to be a more durable option compared to the metal-on-plastic one, but recent research shows that these metal cup and metal ball replacements may be three times more likely to fail than the traditional ones.

Patients who have received this type of replacement have experienced  pain as well as corrective surgeries. The FDA is going to review this product later this month. DePuy Orthopaedics recalled a hip replacement system for similar reasons in 2010.
