Metal Hip Replacement

Patients with a history of hip joint problems once received metal hip replacements as substitutes for their damaged joints. These devices promised to restore mobility to patients who had suffered from pain, disability and the loss of their independence. However, problems surfaced with a number of metal hip replacement products. These problems included ailments ranging from decreased mobility to crippling pain to toxic blood poisoning. These ailments led thousands of patients to pursue metal hip replacement lawsuits against the device’s manufacturers.

How the Metal Hip Replacement Works

In a normal hip joint, the upper part of the thigh bone, known as the femoral head, fits into a socket in the pelvis, known as the acetabulum. In a metal hip replacement, the surgeon replaces the femoral head with a metal ball and reinforces the acetabulum socket with a metal cup. The metal ball at the femoral head is typically larger than the bone it replaces. This ensures the joint’s stability and prevent dislocation of the hip joint. A metal hip replacement also lasts longer than similar components made from plastic.
