Metal on Metal Hip Implants Failing

Metal on metal hip implants, which have accounted for one-third of all hip implant in the United States, appear to be failing at a much faster rate than expected. The metal joint and metal ball of the hip implant grind together releasing metal ions into the patient's tissue which has causes permanent disability. The metal hip replacements were expected to last 15 years but have been failing within a couple of years.

These failures have led DePuy ASR, a division Johnson and Johnson, to place a recall of 40,000 metal on metal hip implants. Several Companies have settled with consumers for defective hip implants in the past for defective implants including Sulzer Orthopedics which paid one billion dollars to 6,800 patients for defective prosthetics. Medical and legal experts expect this defective product to cost billions of dollars to the companies who sold them.
