Metal on Metal Hip Implant Injuries
The problem with metal on metal hip implants is that when the components rub together it causes a condition called metallosis, which is the build up of tiny mental fragments within the body. This build up of metal particles can cause significant damage to bone and soft tissue, including:
- Chronic hip pain
- Irritation, swelling or inflammation
- Metallic poisoning (cadmium or chromium)
Recalled metal-on-metal hip replacement models include:
- DePuy ASR™
- Stryker® Rejuvenate and ABG II Devices
