Despite the anatomical structure of the women’s hip which is considered as the reason why they are at risk of hip implant failure, another thing to ponder is the hip devices used especially that of metal-on-metal hip implants which carry serious complications. Besides, metal-on-metal implants are linked to greater risk of device failure in females as well. I just want to share this site http://www.4000more.org/health/experts-cite-k... , they have helpful information about the complications that you may possibly get from a hip replacement surgery.
