Biomet M2A-Magnum Metal-on-Metal Hip Replacement

The safety of Biomet M2A-Magnum metal-on-metal hip replacement device came under scrutiny following reports stating a number of adverse side effects over the past several years.

The Biomet M2A-Magnum device includes chromium and cobalt in its composition. Much like the recalled DePuy ASR, both the head and the acetabular cup (ball and socket components) in the Biomet are made of metal. When these two components rub together, small metal pieces come off, and enter the surrounding tissue and the bloodstream. This causes inflammation, loosening, cobalt toxicity (metal poisoning), and other problems similar to those implanted with the DePuy ASR devices.

There is some concern the  Biomet M2A-Magnum metal-on-metal hip replacement may prematurely fail and put patients’ health at risk even though it is not recalled.

Symptoms of a failed Biomet metal-on-metal hip implant include:
  • Pain around the hip, thigh or groin
  • Difficulty walking or standing (bearing weight)
  • Swelling around the implant area
  • Rash that indicates dying tissue
  • Loosening or dislocation of the implant

The FDA is currently reviewing the safety and efficacy of Biomet M2A-Magnum metal-on-metal hip replacements. Over 80,000 Biomet M2A-Magnum devices were implanted in patients throughout the United States.
