FAQ


Cormet Hip Resurfacing System
Hip replacements have existed in some form for over 100 years.  The traditional version replaces the entire ball joint at the top of the femur, along with the inner part of the hip socket.  But in the 1990s, doctors began to experiment with ways to achieve the benefits of hip replacement without removing as much healthy bone.  There are benefits to conserving as much bone as possible, since this reduces negative effects like reduced range of motion, and makes it easier to replace the artificial joint at some later point, if that becomes necessary.  For this reason resurfacing systems are typically recommended for younger and more active patients who are more likely to need a revision in the future.                                                                         
While the surgery to resurface a hip removes less bone that a traditional hip replacement, it is actually a more difficult surgery and takes special skill to perform correctly.
Out of the ten hip resurfacing systems that exist, Cormet is one of the three that have been approved by the FDA. All three of these systems are metal on metal and use chrome and cobalt.  They differ slightly in the methods they use to attach the implant to the bone, with CHR using a titanium plasma-sprayed outer surface to attach the implant to the acetabulum.  They also differ in how long they have existed, with CHR being newer than others and having less of a track record.                                                                                                                                     
All metal-on-metal implants come with the danger of wear, and the resulting metal particles in the joint area and in the bloodstream.  These particles can cause irritation and toxicity to the surrounding tissue, even causing the tissue to grow dangerous “pseudotumors.” While the particles are microscopic, they can accumulate over time until they form a visible black sludge. They can also enter the bloodstream and cause metal toxicity, known as metallosis. This can cause system-wide symptoms including psychological and cognitive problems.
Currently, it is not clear whether any of the resurfacing systems are safer or significantly less prone to wear.  Randomized controlled trials have not been done to prove which is best, and so doctors typically rely on their clinical experience to choose one.  There is no existing metal-on-metal hip that does not come with the danger of metal particle accumulation. Lawsuits have been brought against the maker of this product, and customers should be wary of having it implanted.
