There are many studies pointing to the negative effects of metal-on-metal hip replacements. Thus, some of the manufacturers have already recalled their device. However, there are still some designs that are made available in the market in which those who are unaware of the possible outcomes may have agreed to have it inserted inside them.

Stroke is deadly if it is not prevented or immediately mediated. Those who had hip replacement are at risk and it is best to watch out for symptoms. Know more about the risks of hip replacement devices at http://www.depuypinnaclelawsuit.com

Patients who undergo total hip replacement are at greatly increased risk for stroke in the first few weeks after their surgery. Constant monitoring of their health status is a must. For more detailed information, visit http://www.strykerhiprecall.us/free-brochure/

Well, that was enlightening. I never knew that stroke was one of the possible side effects associated with total hip replacement. I do, however, know of other complications that could result from total hip replacement. I've read about them on http://www.rotlaw.com/hip-replacement-lawsuit...

I had my right hip replaced a year ago. I had thrombophlebitis over a decade ago and spent 10 days in hospital heavily medicated with Coumadin; luckily that passed but I've been sensitive to deep vein thrombosis [(DVT) or a deep venous blood clot] and its potential to be life threatening (clot migration to the lungs) ever since.
I was on Coumadin for a couple weeks after the THR. It was clear to me that the surgeon was guarding against a DVT with me as are colleagues everywhere. Coumadin can be responsible for bleeds anywhere in the body, including the brain. If bad enough, that is a serious stroke.

Very informative April. Your site has helped me a lot. I sure hope you know of some hip replacements alternative to metal-on-metal.
for mine own sake! I am 83 years old and can barely walk because of my ball-socket problem.
