Johnson & Johnson Settlement Resolves Metal Hip Lawsuits But Weak Oversight Of Medical Device Industry Leaves Hundreds of Thousands of Patients Vulnerable
Date:11/19/2013

ological problems.   Due to the significant problems experienced with metal on metal hip implants, the FDA has proposed that they be subject to a more rigorous review process but has yet to finalize this policy, thus keeping the door open for fast track review of future metal hip implants.  Consumers Union has urged the FDA to finalize this requirement as soon as possible. 

Further, the FDA should be doing more to inform the hundreds of thousands of people who have metal hips of the steps they should take to regularly monitor the way the device may be affecting their health, according to Consumers Union.  The agency has information on its website but many people with implants are unaware of the danger the devices could pose to their health.

"The FDA advises surgeons to follow up with their patients – whether symptomatic or asymptomatic – every one to two years for the long term and the FDA should regularly remind the public to do so," said McGiffert.
