FAQ

Metal-on-Metal Hip Replacement Concerns
 
If you are thinking about a metal-on-metal hip replacement, it is best to know the risks and concerns before going into the surgery. Just like any surgery, this one can carry some risks and side effects that you should be aware of prior to surgery.

Metal-on-metal hip replacement involves replacing the ball and socket portions of the hip with metal prosthetics. Unlike metal and plastic replacement there is not a piece of plastic between the two metal components. This is a durable option, particularly for those wanting to maintain a very active lifestyle after surgery. But there are some concerns with metal-on-metal hip replacement, as with all forms of hip replacement, that need to be considered by both you and your physician.

Pain, swelling, change in mobility and numbness are all initial symptoms after hip replacement surgery. These do not necessarily mean there is a problem. You should discuss all concerns and symptoms you have with your physician to determine how frequently you need monitored after your replacement

Common Concerns

The two most common complications from all hip replacements are dislocation and implant wear. If a dislocation occurs the first course of action is to put the joint back into place. This is done with the patient under anesthesia. In the case of multiple dislocations surgery may be needed to correct the problem.

Wear of the implant can lead to a need for resurfacing or replacement over time. It also can lead to bone loss due to microscopic fragments breaking off and sitting around the bones. Your immune system then attacks the bone. This healthy bone then softens and causes the implant to be unstable.

Metal-on-Metal Concerns

In metal-on-metal devices the small particles sent into the body are metallic ions. These fragments can have the same localized effect such as bone loss and soft tissue damage around the implant. However, the FDA advises doctors to be aware of potential systematic conditions that may or may not be linked to the metal ions entering the body.

•    Allergic reaction or hypersensitivity
•    Renal function impairment
•    Thyroid problems
•    Depression or other psychological changes
•    Cardiomyopathy (disease of the heart muscle)
•    Sensory and neurological changes (such as visual or hearing impairment)

Certain patients are more likely to suffer an adverse reaction to the metal-on-metal hip replacement device and will therefore be monitored more closely by their physician after surgery. Patients who meet any of the following conditions may be watched more closely post-surgery:

•    Possible sensitivity to metals
•    Seriously overweight
•    Highly physically active
•    On high dose of corticosteroids
•    Female
•    Lowered immune system
•    Dual hip replacement

It is important to keep your doctor up to date on how your feeling after your hip replacement surgery and if you have any symptoms that concern you. Hip replacement can offer greater mobility and improved function to those with joint damage. However, it is essential to pay attention to your body beyond just your implant to ensure you maintain your health.
