How Can Metal Ions Affect Health After a Metal-on-Metal Hip Replacement?

Are you curious to find out if metal ions can affect your body after a metal-on-metal hip replacement? There are three types of implants used in hip replacement surgery. One option is metal-on-metal. In this option both the ball and socket of the hip joint are replaced with metal implants. Unlike in metal and plastic implants, there is no plastic spacer between these two metal parts. It has been considered a more durable option but isn't without its concerns. Surgeons and patients will work together to determine the correct balance of risk and benefit.

Metal Ions

Metal-on-metal implants can consist of stainless steel, chromium, cobalt and titanium. These metal pieces rub together during normal daily function. This causes microscopic fragments of metal to enter the body. There is concern over what harm these metal ions cause. However, there is no current FDA regulation on the amount of metal ions deemed safe or at what level action should be taken.

People will react to the metal ions in various ways and to varying degrees. Currently, there is no way to predict who might have a reaction, what it will be, how severe or when it will happen.

Potential Side Effects

The effect of the metal ions on the localized hip area can include:

•    Soft tissue damage, death of tissue in the joint
•    Bone damage, loss of surrounding bone
•    Loosening of implant
•    Pain
•    Device failure

The effect of the metal ions throughout the body may include:

•    Renal function impairment
•    Thyroid dysfunction
•    Heart problems
•    Sensory changes, such as vision or hearing changes
•    Depression
•    Cognitive impairment
•    Skin rashes

The FDA has not determined that there is enough evidence currently to require routine checks of metal ion levels for metal-on-metal hip implant patients. However, if a patient is showing any of the above symptoms, metal ion levels in the blood and soft tissue will most likely be tested.

Testing for Metal Ions
If a patient is showing signs of excess metal or they meet other requirements for more thorough testing, in addition to testing the patient's blood metal levels, the physician may use one or more of the following to test soft tissue:

•    MRI
•    CT Scan
•    Ultrasound

It can be difficult to acquire accurate results due to a high potential for contamination. Tubes for collecting blood and needles used to draw blood can have trace amounts of metal ions in them that adversely affect the sample. Many labs are incapable of accurately measuring trace and ultra trace amounts of metal. Variations of lab test capability can make it difficult to interpret results.
