This makes sense since RA may be caused by infections and any faults in the implant will hasten it. If only the products did not cause severe complications, then maybe many RA patients could benefit from it. As it is, many sufferers have been exposed to additional risks due to these products.

Hi, This hip replacement problem is from beginning. It is an additional risk for a RA patient.

Those who have RA have much different problems than those with OA. Rheumatoid Arthritis is an autoimmune problem and having an implant which is a foreign body, may also trigger the immune system. http://www.depuypinnaclelawsuit.com/do-i-have...
