Biomet Hip Lawsuits
All of claims pending in the federalallege the metal-on-metal design of the M2a Magnum hip system can generate high levels of metal ions, leading to metallosis in the surrounding tissue and early failure of the device.Metal-on-metal hip replacements are currently being reviewed by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA), which in Januaryadvised doctors to consider metal ion testing for all-metal hip replacement patients who are experiencing symptoms of a failing implant, including pain, swelling, loosening of the implant, or change in the ability to walk. The FDA also proposed an order requiring manufacturers of metal-on-metal total hip replacement systems to submit premarket approval (PMA) applications, which would make them ineligible for 510(k) clearance.*
According to Health Digest News, the Consumers Union announced last week that it had sent a Comment Letter to the FDA urging the agency to adopt the rule it proposed in January. The letter, which was signed by 11,000 consumers, asserted that thousands of patients had been seriously harmed by metal-on-metal hip replacement devices that were never properly tested before being approved by the FDA.**
