People may need to be aware that in addition to the hip replacement devices failing and requiring revision surgery, there is also a risk for metal poisoning in the blood and surrounding tissues from all-metal implants. The metal parts grind against each other, causing toxic metal shavings to become dispersed in the body. The metal poisoning, metallosis, might increase the risk of kidney and bladder cancers. If you or a loved one have experienced any of the complications associated with metal hip replacement parts, you may find helpful information at http://www.depuypinnaclelawsuit.com .

Hip replacement surgery has been a consistent subject of medical news because of the infamous DePuy hip replacement recall. According to DePuy, It is important for all patients to have their hip evaluated by their doctor, though most patients will not need additional surgery as a result of this recall.

There are several cases wherein patients experience so much pain after a hip replacement surgery. Other instances require a revision or second surgery. One reason is a defective hip device. In 2010, Johnson&Johnson issued a worldwide recall of two hip replacement devices (manufactured by its subsidiary DePuy Orthopaedics) because of hip replacement problems. These devices are the ASR XL Acetabular System and the ASR Hip Resurfacing System. The company cited early failure of the devices, resulting in approximately one out of eight patients┬ĺ requiring a ┬ôrevision surgery." This surgery is often more difficult and painful than the original hip replacement procedure. The website depuysettlements. com provides a wide-ranging information on this.
