Here is a video of hip replacemnt surgery. Unfortunately many depuy hip implants are failing at an unprecedented rate.
Patients implanted with the defective medical devices have complained of many problems from pain, swelling, difficulty walking, and flu like symptoms. Revision surgeries have shownmetallosis, a condition caused by the metal ions from the excessive wear of the devices which kills the soft tissue in the affected area. Patients have also been found to haveexcessive levels of chromium and cobalt in their . The impact of this toxicity is not yet fully understood, but is being studied. Another tragic consequence of these early failures is that with each revision surgery, the useful life of these devices goes down. Thus, many of the relatively young people that DePuy marketed this device to may find themself needing another revision in there late fifties or sixties, but not being eligible for one.
