The Biomet M2A Magnum hip is a metal-on-metal hip replacement system, meaning that the majority of the components of this artificial hip are made of metal. In June 2012, the FDA convened an advisory panel to investigate the dangers of this type of implant. They found that the devices have an unacceptably high early failure rate and that they put hip implant recipients at risk for a potentially fatal form of metal toxicity known as metallosis. The panel concluded that there are very few reasons to continue using metal-on-metal hips.
Most reported problems with Biomet M2A Magnum hips can be traced to the device’s metal-on-metal construction. With regular movement, the metal parts of the hip can rub together and the friction they cause can release tiny metal particles into the blood stream. This can cause a number of very serious problems, including:
In some cases, recipients of defective Biomet M2A Magnum hips have needed to undergo painful and costly hip implant revision surgery.
If you experienced pain, inflammation, metallosis, or hip implant failure after receiving a Biomet M2A Magnum hip, you could be entitled to substantial compensation for your physical, emotional, and financial damages.
