A Smith & Nephew Modular Hip Implant Lawsuit is surfacing after allegations that certain hip implant models require higher rates of revision surgery than comparable hip implant devices.
According to recent reports, the Smith & Nephew Modular Hip Implant Lawsuit has also prompted the recall of specific hip implant devices, including the Modular SMF and Modular Redapt.
“Surgeons should monitor patients implanted with the Modular SMF and Modular Redapt hips for pain, swelling, limited mobility and enlarged bursa. Patients with these systems should have the level of cobalt/chromium ions in whole blood; metal ion levels above 7 parts per billion,” says the site Mass Device.
Affected devices include those shipped between October 2008 and July 2016, according to a letter released by Smith & Nephew.
“In the worse case scenario,” say officials from Smith & Nephew, “implanted patients are symptomatic and exhibits adverse tissue reaction to metal debris which may lead to revision surgery.”
