FAQ                      
When it comes to artificial joints, the idea of using a very hard, smooth substance sounds ideal. And this is the rationale behind using metal: Compared to metal on plastic hip systems, metal on metal systems generate just a sixtieth the amount of wear.  But it is not the overall amount of wear that is ultimately important; it is its effect on the system. Research has shown that metal on metal systems have a higher failure rate despite their greater hardness.
When a healthy body part like the hip joint undergoes normal wear and tear, cells may be damaged or worn loose.  However, because they are organic and come from the body, the immune system does not attack them and they do not cause any harm. In healthy joints, the body will grow new cells to replace the damaged ones.  By contrast, when an artificial body part is inserted, wear particles became a huge concern.                                                                                
When inorganic particles come loose in the body’s tissues, they remain there and build up. They can create friction among the body’s moving parts. They also prompt the immune system to attack them because it does not recognize them. These attacks can cause damage to otherwise healthy tissue (similar to how rheumatoid arthritis harms tissue that the immune system mistakenly attacks). This tissue damage affects the bone in the area the implants were cemented to it, making the artificial joints come loose faster.  Signs of loosening include pain and joint stiffness.                                                                                                                                                
Metal particles are particularly irritating for the skin. They are prone to causing pseudotumors, non-cancerous masses that cause harm by pressing against surrounding tissues and impeding their function. They also cause metal toxicity by leaching into the blood and causing inflammation and oxidation in tissue throughout the body, something that is not an issue with plastic or ceramic. This disorder may make revision surgery necessary, since replacing the metal on metal system with non-metal parts is a key step in fighting it.
Statistics suggest that all these problems strongly affect revision rates. A study in the British Isles suggested that MOP implants have a ten-year revision rate of about 3 to 4 percent, whereas for metal on metal systems, the rate is about 19. For metal on metal prostheses with a head greater than 40 mm, a quarter will be revised within 10 years. Studies have also shown that about a third of metal on metal surgery recipients have pseudotumors; although most are not currently harmful, they may become dangerous as they grow.
All these facts suggest that metal on metal implants are not an ideal choice, and many medical authorities have called for surgeons to stop using them in almost all cases.
