Types of Defective Hip Implants
Several hip implant manufacturers are responsible for complications that patients have suffered from defective implant devices. You may have a case against the manufacturer if you have suffered injuries from any of the following hip implants:
- DePuy Pinnacle
- DePuy ASR
- Biomet M2a Magnum
- Biomet Stanmore
- Biomet Exceed ABT
- Stryker Rejuvenate
- Stryker ABG II
- Wright Medical Technology’s CONSERVE
- Wright Medical Technology’s Profemur Z Stem
Several of these implants have been the subject of recalls. If you have been contacted about a recall, it is important to seek legal advice before you sign any paperwork that may waive your right to receive compensation for future medical expenses.
Common Complications Caused by Defective Hip Implants
Recipients of these hip implants are at risk for hip implant failure and a variety of complications, including:
- Heterotopic ossification: the calcification of soft tissue around the implant, which can lead to swelling, tenderness, and decreased range of motion.
- Metallosis: the buildup of metallic debris in the soft tissue of the body due to abrasive wear of the replacement hip which can lead to severe joint pain, implant failure, tissue necrosis, and cysts.
- Osteolysis: the loss of bone around the implant which can lead to hip implant failure.
- Loosening of implant components: usually requires a revision surgery.
- Periprosthetic fractures: bones breaking around the implant that will cause it to fail.
