New Recall of Metal-on-Metal Hip Implants

Smith & Nephew, a medical device maker has issued a recall for a metal-on-metal hip implant component after finding a higher than normal level of patient problems with the device, including infections, fractures, and dislocations. The recall concerns the optional metal liner, or cup, component of its R3 Acetabular System. According to a report in Reuters, approximately 7,700 of the recalled metal liners have been implanted since its introduction in 2007.

Metal-on-metal hips have been linked in studies to myriad problems including, loosening, the need for revision surgery, metalosis, and tissue damage caused by the release of microscopic metallic particles from the hip systems.
