What is metallosis? 8 ways to determine if your hip replacement has caused metallosis

(Image Credit: Pixabay.com)

Metallosis is a side effect that can be caused by faulty or defective metal-on-metal hip replacements. If left untreated, it can cause long-term health problems.

The definition of metallosis

Metallosis is when metal debris builds up in the body’s tissue. This metal build up causes the area of the metal implant to become inflamed and sore. It can cause damage to bone and tissue, and negatively affect your nervous system.

Whilemetallosis is not always life threatening it can cause Osteolysis and lead towards other serious health problems.

The potential risks of a faulty metal-on-metal hip replacement:

Ways you can determine if you have metallosis

If you have a metal-on-metal hip replacement, there are signs you can check to find out if you have metallosis.  

 

1. Inspect the area for inflammation or tenderness

Early signs of metallosis cause the tissue surrounding the hip implant to become inflamed. It can also cause swelling.

 

2. Suffering constant hip pain

Discomfort or constant pain in your hip can indicate your metal hip is causing problems internally.

 

3. Implant is loosening or uncomfortable

5 questions to ask before beginning a metal hip claim

Metal-on-metal hip replacements were designed to help people suffering from hip problems. However, in recent years the recall of several metal hip implants and the hardship caused by these faulty implants has given many Americans the chance to claim compensation for the damage caused to them.  

It’s unfair you should suffer as a result of the metal hip manufacturers or doctors who failed to tell you the potential risks.

Before you can contact a personal injury lawyer, there are some questions you need to answer first. There is important information you need to gather so your lawyer can determine if you have a strong case for a metal hip claim.

Here are the questions you need to ask before beginning a metal hip claim:

1. What metal-on-metal implant do you have?

First, you need to find out who manufactured your metal hip.

So far, there are quite a few manufacturers who have had to recall their metal implants because of the risk of blood poisoning and tissue damage.

  • In August 2010, DePuy ASR issued a recall for approximately 93,000 implants which had a high rate of persistent failure.
  • DePuy Pinnacle has also faced lawsuits for the faulty metal technology.
  • Successful lawsuits have been made against Biomet for their faulty Biomet M2A Magnum Hip implants.

Other metal implants created by companies like Wright Conserve, Stryker Rejuvenate and Zimmer Durom have faced legal action for their metal-on-metal hip implants.

Find out who manufactured your implant. Your doctor should have records about your hip implant and be able to give you the name of the manufacturer.

2. Did your doctor tell you the risks of the metal hip implant?

Before getting your implant, did your doctor tell you of the possible risks? It has only been in the last decade that reports have surfaced about metal-on-metal hip complications so your doctor may not have known the potential dangers. It is an important question to ask then you can find out which parties are liable.

Five Common Types of Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice is a term many are familiar with, or have at least heard in passing.  But, do you really know what it means?  It’s much more than just a dissatisfied customer.

Medical malpractice occurs when a patient is harmed by a doctor or nurse who fails to provide proper health care treatment.  Legally, medical malpractice means that a doctor or medical provider must have been negligent in some way (i.e. the provider was not reasonably skillful or competent, resulting in harm to a patient).

It is understood when examining the medical field that on a small scale, mistakes will be made.  However, within that small scale, certain types of errors do crop up more often than others.  These are the top five most common types of medical malpractice:

Misdiagnosis

Misdiagnosis and delayed diagnosis make up the majority of medical malpractice complaints.  In such a complex field as medicine, mistakes are going to be made.  However, often a physician’s negligence will cause them to completely overlook obvious signs and symptoms in a patient.  These oversights might mean that a patient misses out on treatment opportunities that could have prevented serious harm or even death.
