Metal-on-Metal Hip Implant Lawsuits: Wright & Schulte LLC Commends Consumer Reports’ Stance on Hip, Knee Implant Regulation
Date:9/15/2013

ct Court, District of Minnesota. (In re: Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2441)

In a Safety Communication issued January 17th, the FDA cautioned that toxic metal ions shed from metal-on-metal hip replacements can cause soft-tissue damage and pain, possibly leading to revision surgery to replace the implant, as well as systemic reactions in other parts of the body. At the time, the agency urged metal-on-metal hip implant recipients to consult their doctor if they experience new or worsening pain, swelling, numbness, noise (popping, grinding, clicking or squeaking of your hip), and/or change in their ability to walk. The FDA also announced that it was proposing new rules that require the manufacturers of metal-on-metal hips to conduct post-market safety studies of their devices if they want them to remain on the market.
