New Metal-on-Metal Hip Implant Study Emphasizes Importance of Patients’ Symptoms in Evaluating the Need for Hip Replacement Revisions, Bernstein Liebhard LLP Reports
Date:12/25/2012

New York, New York (PRWEB) December 25, 2012

Researchers in the U.K. are urging doctors to consider patient symptoms when determining whether or not to perform metal-on-metal hip implant revision surgery, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to a report from Orthopedics Today Europe, researchers with Prince Charles Hospital in Merthyr Tydfil found that while MRI and ultrasound are useful in screening metal-on-metal hip replacements, there are a significant percentage of hips which have failed with negative radiology findings. Their findings were presented at the British Orthopaedic Association Congress this past September.”*

“This research confirms what we have seen with some of our clients—that pain could signal device failure,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing clients who sustained injuries from a variety of metal-on-metal hip systems. The firm is currently offering free and confidential lawsuit reviews to individuals who suffered serious complications, including metal poisoning, due to all-metal hips.

This latest study retrospectively examined imaging results from 25 hips (16 patients) between March 2011 and May 2012. Out of that group, 23 hips had ultrasound scans and 21 had also undergone MRI scans preoperatively. During revision surgery, multiple tissue samples were retrieved from the area surrounding the artificial joint. Four patients had both negative MRI and ultrasound results, but were still revised due to pain and were found to have histopathology positive metallosis. One patient had a positive ultrasound and negative MRI result; similarly, one patient had a positive MRI with a normal ultrasound, according to the research team.
