New Research Discloses that Pseudotumor Formation Occurs in Close to 30% of Metal-on-Metal Hip Implants, Parker Waichman LLP Notes
Date:9/24/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) September 24, 2013

Parker Waichman LLP, a national law firm dedicated to protecting the rights of victims injured by defective medical devices, reports that, based on new research from a group in The Netherlands, formation of pseudotumors occurs in 28% of metal-on-metal hip implants. As reported on the Sept. 13 edition of the medical news website Healio’s Orthopedics Today, from the period of 2005 through 2010, 129 patients (149 hips) underwent metal-on-metal hip resurfacing surgery with a metal-on-metal femoral head and acetabular shell (four patients ultimately dropped out, however, lowering the study’s final tally to 143 metal hips). After about 41 months, researchers found via CT scans pseudotumors in 39 patients. Seven of them underwent revision surgery because of symptomatic pseudotumors. Ten patients with pseudotumors complained of groin pain, the presence of a noticeable mass or paresthesia (a sensation of tingling, tickling, prickling, pricking, or burning).

“They say knowledge is power, so these findings are helpful for patients with metal-on-metal hip implants,” said Daniel C. Burke, Senior Litigation Counsel at Parker Waichman LLP. “There are numerous lawsuits alleging that an all-metal hip replacement caused pseudotumors, among other serious complications.”

Parker Waichman LLP is currently representing clients in several litigations related to metal-on-metal hip implants, including in multidistrict litigations (MDLs) such as In Re: DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc., ASR Hi
