The use of ABS can greatly help reduce the risk of infection in lengthy operations like hip replacement. Also, the implant may be a source of infection, thus it is important to keep the area surrounding the incision site clean. However, device-related complications may arise and affect patients like what happened here http://www.hiprecalllaw.com .

Very alarming case, this should be given extra attention and should be prevented to avoid the growing number of complains against hip implants such as those DePuy hip implants cases that you can check at http://www.depuyrecallnewscenter.com
