Related health input, defective hip devices may cause health complications. Serious hip injuries, dislocations, or fractures can lead to avascular Necrosis, medical specialists say. It is a condition wherein blood supply to the ball (the ball-shaped piece of bone that fits into the socket of the hip) portion of the thighbone is cut off and the bone begins to break down.

And because of the increasing lawsuits that were filed against these implants, these manufacturers as well as Zimmer issued a recall of their hip implants.
