FAQ

What Are Metal Ions and How are They Related to Metal-on-Metal Hip Replacements?

Have you been hearing a lot of people in the news lately talking about metal ions in the body? There is always concern with metal in the body since there are only certain types of metals that are found naturally in the body. So what are these metal ions? What does it mean for you if you have them found in your body? We will talk about what speculation has been surrounding the metal ions and what can be done about them if you have them in your body.

What Are Metal Ions?

Metal ions are very small particles that are made from metal. Metal ions can be found in the body. Doctors can determine whether you have metal in your body by performing a blood test or a urinalysis. Both blood tests and urinalysis will show if there are metal ions in the body.

What’s the Problem with Having Metal Ions in the Body?

As humans, we have metals in our body already. Zinc, copper, iron and other metals can be found in our body in varying levels of normal. However, metals such as cobalt or chromium are not found in high levels in the body. If these metals enter the bloodstream, many doctors have concerns that they can cause health problems.

There are several problems that have been reported to have ties with metal ions being in the body. Those things include:

•    Skin rash
•    Changes in vision
•    Changes in hearing
•    Depression
•    Cognitive impairments
•    Thyroid problems
•    Renal function issues
•    Cardiomyopathy

Are These Problems Linked with Metal-on-Metal Hip Implants?

At the moment, there is not enough concrete evidence to prove or disprove the link between those health problems and metal ions from a metal-on-metal hip implant. Over time, the metal from the hip implant can wear off in the body. Some speculate that these particles can cause problems with soft tissue.

Patients who do not currently have any symptoms should not worry. Following up with your doctor to check for levels of metal ions can help you keep an eye on the ion levels. Some doctors will use soft tissue imaging to examine your body for metal ions as well. If you are having problems with any of the health issues above and have a metal-on-metal hip implant, it is crucial for you to consult your physician.
