METAL-ON-METAL (MoM) HIP REPLACEMENTS/
Metal-on-metal (MoM) hip replacement systems have unique risks in addition to the general risks of all hip implant systems.
Because the metal ball and the metal cup slide against each other during walking or running, some tiny metal particles may wear off of the device and enter into the space around the implant. Some of the metal ions from the metal implant or particles may even get into the bloodstream.
Different people will react to these metal particles in different ways. At this time, it is not possible to know who will experience a reaction, why type of reaction they might have, when the reaction will occur or how severe the reaction will be.
However, it is know that over time, the metal particles around some implants can cause damage to bone and/or tissue surrounding the implant and joint. Such a reaction may cause the implant to become loose or cause pain. Ultimately, this can require a revision surgery where the old device is removed and replaced with another one.
