Study finds new Metal-on-Metal
hip implants are worse than older models.

David W. Hodges
Partner at Kennedy Hodges LLP practicing pharmacy error, medical malpractice and personal injury law

A recent New York Times article reported on a study conducted recently by Australia’s orthopedic registry, which studied hip implants from 2003 to 2007. The study concluded that newer models of artificial hip and knee implants are not better than the older, cheaper designs. In fact, the new implants, like metal-on-metal designs, are expected to fail prematurely in tens of thousands of patients.
Artificial implants are supposed to last 15 years or more, but the new designs have extremely high failure rates. The study showed that 30 percent of new artificial hip or knee implants performed worse than old models.
700,000 Americans receive hip implants
Each year, an estimated 700,000 Americans have replacement surgeries for hip or knee replacement. If you had hip replacement surgery in the last few years you may be eligible to receive compensation if you have suffered due to a hip implant device.

Patients suffering due to DePuy Hip Implants

In 2010, DePuy Orthopaedics recalled its ASR XL Acetabular metal-on-metal hip implants due to hundreds of consumer complaints that patients suffered injury and needed revision surgery after the implants.

Some of the injuries patients suffered due to the DePuy hip implants include:
  • Difficulty walking, 
  • Pain or inflammation at hip replacement site, 
  • Loosening or dislocation of implant, 
  • Bone fractures around the implant,
  • Metallosis - increased metal levels in the blood because of the metal-on-metal design shedding particles into the bloodstream.
