DePuy ASR Metal Hip Replacement Lawsuit
The recalled DePuy ASR metal hip has been linked to a higher than expected number of failures and a risk of metallosis or metal poisoning, which could cause a number of health problems.
DePuy Pinnacle Metal-on-Metal Hip Lawsuit
The DePuy Pinnacle is an older metal-on-metal artificial hip, which has also been linked to an increased risk of problems. Lawsuits for DePuy Pinnacle metal-on-metal hip patients are being pursued nationwide.
Wright Conserve Metal Hip Lawsuit
The metal-on-metal design of the Wright Conserve hip system could allow deterioration of the implant as the metal parts rub together, causing loss of the structural integrity and a risk of loosening of the implant.
Wright Profemur Hip Lawsuit
A defective design of the femoral neck for this system has been linked to a number of catastrophic failures, where Wright Profemur hip implant may shatter or fracture. Although the neck was designed to bend and be modular so it could be more easily adjusted for length, it appears to be particularly prone to problems.
Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II Hip Lawsuit
As a result of problems with the design, a Stryker Rejuvenate recall was issued in July 2012 for the modular neck stem hip replacement system, which has been linked to a risk of corrosion and fretting, which may cause early failure of the implant.
Zimmer Durom Cup Lawsuit
In 2008, sales of the Zimmer Durom Cup were temporarily halted following an investigation into complaints that the cup had a tendency to loosen insdie patients’ bodies. Problems with the Zimmer Durom Cup design, instructions and warnings caused a number of individuals to require revision surgery.
METAL-ON-METAL HIP REPLACEMENT PROBLEMS
In recent years, concern has increased among consumers and the medical community about the safety of metal-on-metal hip replacement designs, which were promoted for younger and more active patients. However, the implants have been linked to a staggering number of problems within a few years of surgery, often resulting in the need for revision surgery or life-time medical monitoring due to the risk of metal hip poisoning.
Microscopic shavings of chromium and cobalt may be shed into the body as the metal hip implant parts rub against each other.
Although certain types of implants have resulted in more lawsuits, the metal-on-metal hip replacement lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. are reviewing potential claims for individuals who received any all-metal artificial hip system that caused them to experience problems.
