Metal on Metal Hip Problems:
Last month the FDA issued a report with data suggesting that metal-on-metal hip replacement systems are more likely to fail than other hip implant devices. Following this report, the FDA’s Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Devices Advisory Panel, concluded that there are very few, if any, reasons to keep using metal-on-metal hip implants. They recommend that metal-on-metal hip implant patients undergo continued monitoring including regular X-rays and blood testing for metal levels to ensure that their implant is not failing.
The FDA requests that the hip implant manufacturers such as Johnson & Johnson, Zimmer Holdings Inc. and Biomet Inc. conduct long-term follow-up studies of their metal-on-metal hip implant products on the US market.
