People who have arthritis or massive bone fractures are usually those most likely to benefit from hip implant surgery. Some of the conditions that a person may have in order to be considered for the surgery may include but are not limited to: osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and traumatic arthritis.
Most hip implants usually have a ball and socket system. The socket is implanted into the pelvis which fits securely next to the ball. The ball is attached to a spike that may be cemented or drilled into the thighbone. Typically, these hip implants are made from metal and or plastic.Why Are The Stryker Hip Implants Considered Defective?
The alleged defective Stryker hip implants are made out of ceramic material and most other hip implants are metal or plastic. The ceramic portions of the hip implants were recalled at first due to concerns relating to the possible non sterile environment of the Stryker production facility. Aside from the sterile environment issue, which had insufficient evidence, many of the implants have manufacturing problems that may lead to or have led to injuries for the patients. The implants are most likely to make popping or squeaking noises when in motion and many physicians are concerned that the noise problem may be an indicator of additional problems with these hip implants. Some of these problems may include the implant breaking into pieces or the implants wearing out easily which may cause pain for the patient.How Can A Nashville Stryker Hip Implant Recall And Personal Injury Attorney At The Higgins Firm Help With My Claim?
