FAQ

How Can I Know if I Will Be Sensitive to the Metal Ions in a Metal-on-Metal Hip Replacement?

Have you heard rumors about metal sensitivities from a metal-on-metal hip replacement? Let’s look at why this happens and whether you should be concerned about them from your hip implant.

Metal-on-metal hip replacement involves replacing the bones in the hip joint with all metal ball and socket prosthetics. This is a durable option but is not suited for everyone. Your surgeon will work with you to weigh the risks and benefits and decide if metal-on-metal is the best option for you.

Metal Ions

One concern with hip implants is the microscopic metal particles released when the pieces of the joint rub together from extensive activity, slight misalignment or even daily wear. These metal ions can cause both localized and systematic symptoms.

Potential localized symptoms from the release of metal ions:

•    Swelling
•    Pain
•    Soft tissue damage
•    Bone damage
•    Implant loosening

Potential systematic symptoms from the release of metal ions:

•    Reduced renal function or renal failure
•    Heart problems
•    Rashes
•    Thyroid dysfunction
•    Depression
•    Cognitive impairment
•    Sensory changes (such as issues with vision or hearing)

Who is at risk?

Anyone with an allergy or sensitivity to metals is at an increased risk to reactions from these metal ions. This type of sensitivity is part of the discussion between patient and surgeon to determine the best kind of implant to use. Those with a known metal sensitivity may be recommended to use a different material.

Patients who already have reduced renal function may have an increased problem after the surgery. Proper kidney function is vital for the body to rid itself of metals, particularly cobalt, a main component of these hip implants.

Other patients who may be at increased risk for sensitivity to metal ions are:

•    Patients with reduced immune function
•    Patients on high doses of corticosteroids
•    Women of childbearing age

Patients with none of these pre-existing conditions and symptoms still may react strongly to the metal ions released by implants manufactured from metal.

Testing

Currently the FDA does not believe it is necessary to make testing for metal ions standard for all recipients of metal-on-metal hip replacement. The FDA also has not set a limit of the amount of trace metals within the patient's system that then requires further action, such as hip revision surgery.

If symptoms are noticed they should be immediately reported to your doctor so you can get tested.

Standard numbers are difficult to set due to the fact that some labs are unable to detect trace or ultra trace amounts of ions. Equipment used to obtain and store samples, such as needles and tubes can have trace amounts of metal in them and contaminate the sample.
