Biomet M2A Magnum Hip Implant Lawyers

Lawyers Representing People Harmed by Biomet Metal-on-Metal Hip Implants

The Biomet M2a-Magnum hip implant is the latest metal-on-metal hip device to come under scrutiny following reports of a wide range of adverse side effects associated with it.

Biomet Magnum

Metal-on-Metal Hip Replacements

In recent years, similar problems have plagued many patients with DePuy ASR, DePuy Pinnacle, Wright Profemur and other “metal-on-metal” hip replacement systems. The Biomet Magnum device includes chromium and cobalt in its composition, and both the femoral head and the acetabular cup contain these metals.

The friction caused by the two surfaces rubbing against each other while in motion may result in very small metal fragments being shed into the surrounding tissue and blood stream. This can cause tissue damage, inflammatory reactions, bone loss, necrosis and a type of blood poisoning known as metallosis.

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons sounded an alarm in October 2010 regarding potential problems with metal-on-metal hip replacements. Its warning, directed to consumers and medical providers, stated that pain continuing for months following implantation might be a symptom of metallosis (metal poisoning).

More than 80,000 metal-on-metal artificial hip devices are implanted in patients annually in the United States. Anyone who presently is considering a hip implant procedure would be wise to discuss alternatives with his or her surgeon. Potentially safer fabrication materials include ceramics, crosslinked polyethylene and plastic. About two-thirds of all hip devices implanted now are made, at least in part, of these materials.

 

Will the FDA Require a BioMet Magnum Hip Device Recall?

In May 2011, the federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) ordered twenty-one manufacturers of hip implant devices to collect and report data on metals levels in the blood of implant patients as well as the adverse health effects that may be caused by them.

About one-third of all hip replacement surgeries in the United States are performed using metal-on-metal devices, and all are now implicated in the examination of them.
