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 .

Thank you for this informative post. There have been various reports on possible problems after a surgery. Hip replacement is one of the most-discussed due to defective prostheses.

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
