Toxic Substances & Metal-on-Metal Hip Replacements

One of the most dangerous side effects associated with metal-on-metal hip implants are the toxic substances that can leak from the device. One such substance is charged chromium ions—something that has been known to be a carcinogen since the 1970s. Unfortunately, many metal-on-metal hip replacements are made of chromium-cobalt. After the device is implanted, it can shed particles of the metal into the body, which can increase the risk of pain, inflammation, bone death, and other complications.

Common Defective Hip Replacement Implants

Some of the most common hip implants named in lawsuits include the following:

  • DePuy ASR XL Acetabular System
  • DePuy ASR Hip Resurfacing System
  • Zimmer Holdings Durom Cup
  • Stryker Orthopaedics Rejuvenate
  • Stryker Orthopaedics ABG II Modular-Neck Hip Stems
