Hip Replacement Recalls
One of the first signs that hip replacement problems were not happening in isolation was the issuance of two recalls – DePuy in 2010 and Stryker in 2012.
It is estimated that up to 13 percent of the 93,000 DePuy hip replacement surgeries either cause serious complications or failed five years after the implantation. Complaints of pain and other side effects after undergoing hip replacement surgery with DePuy’s systems include:
- Allergic reaction to metallic debris
- The formation of pseudo-tumors
- Cobalt or chromium poisoning
- Revision surgery to remove the implant
Patients who have had hip replacement problems with Stryker’s systems have experienced the following complications after hip replacement surgery:
- Metal leakage into the tissues, bones, or bloodstream
- Premature tissue death
- Bone dissolution
- Formation of pseudo-tumors
- Pain that requires additional surgery
