The study shows that women are more prone to suffer hip implant failure than men. Whether it is the case or not, the fact remains that having a hip replacement surgery may give you complications. Based on reports, more than a few suffered complications from hip replacements, especially those who had metal-on-metal hip implants. If you want to know more about these complications associated with metal type hip implants, I find this online resource helpful http://globalnewsonline.org/health-news/the-r... , try to check it out.

Yes McAlister, I think I have also read that women have higher risk of implant failure compared with men. While I was searching online, I think I have also come across some of the issues about hip replacement at depuypinnaclelawsuit. com
