This is really surprising because I have also read the same thing somewhere at depuypinnaclelawsuit. com about this issue. I think more women are going for a hip implant which makes it more troublesome if the implants would fail after a short period of time.

I think this is similar to what I have read in a site depuypinnaclelawsuit. com but I was unsure about it. This is really depressing because women are more prone to develop arthritis. Manufacturers need to consider all the factors in making hip implants last longer in women.

I read it in an article somewhere that women are prone of experiencing a faulty hip implant and that women should be restricted to get one, to know more relate cases, check www.hipreplacementlawsuitcenter.com

This study validates the findings of an earlier study made in the UK about women more prone to failures.Various possible factors have been given by experts and one of these is the fact that women have smaller and delicate bones and joints. Hopefully this concern will be addresse by health providers in coming up with new products. Women also can do somethin by taking preventive measures. More on these measures can be found in depuysettlements .com

I have read a study about that, regarding more hip implant fails among women. The makers of the hip implant should have made a test in both sexes before they marketed this hip implant. To know more about this case, check depuyrecallnewscenter .com
