New Jersey Biomet M2a-Magnum Lawyers
We are investigating hip replacement failures involving the Biomet® M2a-Magnum™ hip implant system. The Biomet® M2a-Magnum™ hip replacement system consists of a metal cup made of a cobalt chromium alloy and is frequently paired with a large diameter Biomet® cobalt chromium modular head. So-called metal-on-metal (MoM) total hip replacements have been associated with adverse effects such as metallosis, pseudotumors, tissue death, bone loss, and metal blood poisoning.
Over the past two years the annual number of adverse events involving the Biomet® M2a-Magnum™ hip replacement reported to the United States Food and Drug Administration has significantly increased, rising from eleven in 2009 to eighty in 2011. Adverse event reports submitted in 2010 and 2011 have included events of acetabular cup loosening, metallosis, chronic pain, osteolysis, popping or squeaking noises, effusions, pseudotumors, and metal poisoning.
Biomet M2a-Magnum Hip Implant Lawsuits
Just as importantly, metal-on-metal hip replacements as a class are being revealed to be worse or, at best, no better than traditional metal on polyethylene hip replacements, but associated with much greater risks. Although aggressively marketed by medical device manufacturers as long lasting and suitable for younger, active patients, many of these metal-on-metal implants were not tested in humans before they were marketed to the public. In fact, at least one of the designers of another popular MoM hip replacement system has concluded that the risks associated with the metal-on-metal total hip implants outweigh their benefits. Other are calling for a recall and ban of all metal-on-metal hip implants, including the Biomet® M2a-Magnum™ .
