Metal-on-Metal Hip Implants: Bernstein Liebhard LLP Comments on New Study Finding Increased Metal Ion Levels May Predict Problems with Metal-on-Metal Hip Replacements
Date:3/16/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) March 16, 2013

A new study has found that metal-on-metal hip implant patients with high levels of metal ions in their blood may face a serious risk of complications, even if they are not experiencing any symptoms that would indicate their hip is failing, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to the study, which appears online at BMJ Open, elevated blood metal ion concentrations were associated with early failure of metal-on-metal hip replacements secondary to adverse reactions to metal debris. Cobalt concentrations greater than 20 µg/l were frequently associated with metal staining of tissues and the development of osteolysis. The study also found that female patients, as well as those fitted with DePuy ASR hips, appeared to be at greater risk from equivalent doses of metal debris. According to the study authors, their findings provide the “first evidence that blood metal ion tests can be used as a clinical indicator of the risk of early joint failure in asymptomatic patients” *

“This study is not surprising at all. It echoes what many of our own metal-on-metal hip implant clients have experienced. It adds to the growing body of research that points to a link between high metal ions and the problems seen in metal-on-metal hip recipients," says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing the victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm continues to offer free legal evaluations to victims of failed metal-on-metal hip replacements.
