Woman’s Biomet Metal Hip Implant Failed, Causing Pain, Need for Revision Surgery, Alleges Lawsuit Filed by Parker Waichman LLP

s well as medical and hospital expenses), severe and possibly permanent injuries, pain, suffering and emotional distress.

The Biomet M2a Magnum is a type of metal-on-metal hip implant. Metal-on-metal hip devices have been recalled worldwide and patients whose hips failed have filed numerous lawsuits. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has put this class of medical device under scrutiny following reports of high failure rates and the release of high concentrations of metallic debris into the bloodstream. On Jan. 17, 2013, the FDA released new guidelines for patients implanted with all-metal devices. The agency advised physical examinations, diagnostic imaging and metal ion testing in symptomatic patients.

Additionally, new data from Canadian suggests that those implanted with metal-on-metal hips are more likely to need revision surgery within five years, according to a July 18 CBC News report. Specifically, according to the Canadian Institutes for Health Information study, people who have had metal-on-metal implants faced a 5.9 percent chance of needing the implant replaced within five years, compared to a 2.7 percent rate among those with metal-on-plastic implants. The all-metal implant design did not work as expected, CBC News reported. It was found that, under the body’s weight during daily activity, the implant’s metal parts rub against each other. Metal particles can then shed into the person’s surrounding tissue and into their bloodstream, causing bone and tissue damage (called metallosis), as well as pseudotumors and the need for early revision surgery to remove and replace the hip.
