FAQ

Stryker Hip Lawyer Huntsville Alabama

The metals used in artificial hips are chosen for their hardness and resistance to corrosion.  They include cobalt, chromium and titanium. Inevitably, even a very hard material will undergo some degree of wear over the years if it is exposed to friction.  So as a patient’s hip ball and socket move around against each other, tiny particles of these metals come loose.  They build up in the surrounding tissue and have a strong irritating effect.  The immune system recognizes them as outside substances and attacks them, leading to damage of the bone, and ultimately to loosening of the implants.  They can also cause fluid buildup and pseudotumors—masses of tissue that grow as a response to irritation, but can press on and interfere with arteries and other body tissues.

They also make their way into the bloodstream and create toxic effects throughout the body. These substances are not toxic in tiny amounts, but as the amount increases, they cause harm to the brain and other tissues, creating weakness, nausea, and mood and memory problems.

The recalled systems, and others that have not yet been recalled, have been subject to hundreds or even thousands of lawsuits from patients who suffered hip pain and early failure.  The failure rate at five years for a hip should be very low, but for some metal on metal models it is in the twenties or thirties.

Many models of this type are still on the market and in use, but patients should use extreme caution about choosing them; manufacturer claims that they are more durable and long-lasting have proven untrue many times before.  Manufacturers must do more extensive research before bringing such products to market.
