Hip Implant Fractures
Patients implanted with Biomet M2a Magnum hip replacements may face an increased risk of fractures or broken bones caused by the hip systems. Symptoms of hip implant fractures include swelling, pain and difficulty walking.
Biomet M2a Magnum hip replacements are metal-on-metal hip implant devices. As the metal cup and head components grind together over time, friction causes the hip device to shed metal debris. The excess metal debris can cause tissue damage near the site of the hip implant, which can lead to broken bones and fractures.
Metallosis, fretting, corrosion and other complications have also been linked to Biomet hip replacement devices. Despite reports of complications, the Food and Drug Administration has not issued a Biomet hip replacement recall.
If you or a loved one experienced broken bones or other problems after receiving a Biomet M2a Magnum hip replacement, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit.
