Florida Apex Arc Hip System Lawsuit Filed
Health problems associated with the Apex Arc hip system are already affecting people in Florida. On June 24, 2014, lawyers for a female plaintiff who resides in Broward County filed a lawsuit against Orthopaedic Synergy Inc. and OmniLife Science Inc. in their home jurisdiction of Suffolk County, Massachusetts. At the time of this writing, the case is still pending. If the results are similar to the DePuy ASR hip resurfacing system and DePuy ASR XL acetabular system recall of 2010, the device will be taken off the market and many millions (or billions, as is the case in some hip settlements) of dollars could be paid in compensation to patients who were harmed by a hip prosthetic. If you or someone you love received an Apex ARC hip system, consider speaking with a skilled Florida attorney today.
When a hip implant fails, it can cause pain, excess medical bills, and the need for revision surgery. Although OmniLife Science Inc. touts the ARC system as being a safe implant that does not cause metallosis, the reality could be much different. The plaintiff in the Suffolk County lawsuit suffers with symptoms of elevated blood levels of chromium, titanium and cobalt. The plaintiff was also found to be suffering the ill effects of iliac vein stenosis. Upon subsequent examination, the stenosis was found to be a pseudo-tumor that comprised fibrotic matter as well as necrotic or dead tissue.
