Reports of Long-Term Damage Associated with Faulty Implants

Significant damages to the body have been reported in connection to metal-on-metal hip implant use. The implant components are referred to as the ball and cup and can rub against each other. Metal debris can break off during rubbing and become lodged between soft tissue fibers and bones, causing significant damage to hip implant patients.

Symptoms can include the following:

  • Bone loss
  • Pain, fever, swelling
  • Neurological and sensory changes
  • Psychological reactions, including depression
  • Thyroid dysfunction
  • Limping or inability to walk
  • Deterioration of entire implant
  • Adverse reactions because of soft tissue damage
  • Inability to work or provide for family
  • Joint problems in cases involving revision
  • Pain, instability, or injury to hip joint
  • Loosening of implant from hip bone

In some cases, metal debris can even enter into the blood stream, causing inflammation, tissue death, and joint issues. In the worst cases, there have been reports of serious heart and nervous system issues caused by metallic toxins entering the bloodstream.
