What Actual Problems Have Really Been Linked to these Biomet Hip Implants?

The M2a Magnum hip replacement implant made by Biomet has been repeatedly alleged to several problems, including metallosis (metal toxicity) and total failure to operate by the entire hip implant. These problems, or defects, result from the metal on metal design of the device and its supposed tendency to shed off excessive metal ion levels into the bloodstream as its various components suffer from ordinary wear and tear. The Biomet lawsuits are based upon this problem among others. An additional basis for the lawsuits is allegedly excessively high levels of cobalt in the bloodstream have been detected in many patients with the metal-on-metal implants like Biomet’s M2a Magnum. When people who have had a hip replacement and suffer from symptoms they shouldn’t, like those below, they should call for help from people like our San Antonio Biomet Implant Lawyers. The problems which they get, and should consult with an attorney over, have been linked to causation of a number of medical problems, including:

  • Hyperthyroidism
  • Headaches
  • Vertigo
  • Tinnitus
  • Peripheral neuropathy
  • Convulsions
  • Blindness
  • Optic nerve damage

Like many other metal-on-metal hip replacement devices, Biomet’s M2a Magnum is constructed of a metal cup or socket and metal ball. According to these Biomet hip lawsuits, each of these components rubs against the other over an extended period of time. This is alleged to release metal ions into the surrounding bone and tissue. It is thought that such ions will cause bone loss, pain, swelling and tissue death as they increase the blood levels of metal in the injured party. Problems such as these increase the difficulty of the revision surgery needed when replacing the defective hip implants.

Metal-on-Metal, including Biomet made, Hip Implants under Scrutiny

In response to the increasing concerns about hip implants with metal-on-metal design, which have been the subject of thousands of claims and lawsuits filed by attorneys such as our Biomet Implant Attorneys in San Antonio, across Texas and rest of our country, the FDA brought together a panel to advise it on the issue in or about June 2012. The panel’s mandate was to discuss what the dangers of such designs of replacement hips actually are. This panel of professional health experts decided that there was no good reason to keep using the hip implants with metal-on-metal designs, because the evidence does reveal that these devices have failed earlier than was expected and did actually increase patient risk of metal ion poisoning.
