Hip replacement failure
In 2010, 310,800 total hip replacements were performed among inpatients aged 45 and over. This procedure is growing in number, (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) and in many situations is critical for restoring a reasonable level of quality of life. In recent developments, a variety of manufacturers pushed for their metal on metal and 2nd generation modular hip implant products to be leveraged in hip replacement surgeries. Often marketing these solutions to younger and more active individuals who might outlive traditional hip replacement products, metal on metal and modular hip implants were rushed to market without the proper clinical testing. As a result, many patients are having to endure unnecessary complications with serious damage and physical hardship.
