Defects In The Design Of The Wright Conserve System
The Wright Conserve cup has a shallow nature, which is similar to the recalled all metal DePuy ASR device which causes excess friction among the metal cup and metal ball that sheds excessive metal debris. When friction is increased at many points of contact with the femoral head and acetabular cup, dangerous amounts of metal toxins that are shed accumulate and cause metal poisoning when it gets into the bloodstream and tissue. A multitude of serious health issues can occur when metal poisoning happens, such as tissue necrosis, infections and cysts, cardiac problems, among many other dangerous adverse reactions.
