Metal on Metal Hip Implant Devices Now Subject To Litigation:
According to the US Drug Watchdog, "Symptoms of a metal-on-metal hip implant failure include pain in the area of the hip implant, loss of flexibility, swelling in the area of the metal-on metal hip implant, loss of mobility, and elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium in the blood stream of the recipient. We think a blood test for cobalt, and or chromium levels is the best way for a metal on metal hip implant recipient to discover if their hip implant has failed." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
