Kershaw|Talley Hip Recall Attorneys: Journal of Bone and Joint Study

Hi, I’m Stuart Talley with Kershaw|Talley. Bill Kershaw and I are the partners responsible for the prosthetic hip litigation.

I am discussing a study concerning metal-on-metal hips and cobalt-chromium toxicity. A recent study was published in the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery. In this study, researchers evaluated patients with metal-on-metal hips. They examined the patients for a correlation between blood levels of cobalt- chromium and an incidence of pseudotumors or tissue damage surrounding the hip joint.

The surprising discovery indicated no correlation. Individuals with high cobalt and chromium levels did not always suffer from tissue damage, and the degree of tissue damage did not always correlate to the level of cobalt and chromium in the blood.

The researchers concluded individuals with metal-on-metal hips and high levels of cobalt and chromium do not necessarily need a hip revision. Prior to hip revision, the doctor should also evaluate pain levels and perform more conclusive tests and imaging studies, like MRIs or x-rays. This ensures a detail description of the hip. The study mentioned many doctors were relying heavily on the cobalt and chromium serum levels alone.

Kershaw|Talley Hip Recall Attorneys: UK Joints Lack Supporting Evidence

Hi, I’m Stuart Talley with Kershaw|Talley. Bill Kershaw and I are the partners responsible for the prosthetic hip litigation.

I am discussing a recent study about prosthetic hips and defective hips. The study was conducted in the United Kingdom (UK). The researchers wanted to determine what percentage of prosthetic hips were tested prior to their release on the market and prove their effectiveness.

The researchers proved over 24% of prosthetic hips sold in the UK were never tested to determine if they were effective and safe. Unfortunately, this also occurs in the United States (US). The US has very lax regulations regarding medical devices, especially hips.

A manufacturer can receive approval through a “fast track” process. This process allows a manufacturer to release a hip if it is substantially similar to another product already on the market. Typically, manufacturers will make minor changes to previous prosthetic hip models, put it on the market, and hope it does well. Generally, this process does not work out. If you have a metal-on-metal hip, you might experience problems from elevated levels of cobalt and chromium released around the hip joint.
