Biomet M2 and M2A Magnum Hip Systems
If you or a loved one were implanted with the Biomet M2 or M2A Magnum hip replacement systems, you may be eligible to receive compensation by filing a Biomet hip implant lawsuit. The Biomet M2A Magnum hip system is similar to the recalled DePuy ASR hip as well as other metal on metal hip implants, which have come under scrutiny because of their high failure rates as well as risks of severe side effects. Made with a metal femoral head and pelvic cup, the Biomet M2 Magnum hip replacement system consists of cobalt and chromium. The friction that arises from the metal components rubbing together with movement can release metal particles into the surrounding tissues and bloodstream, causing complications with the hip replacement system. If you or someone you care about have suffered serious side effects, you should contact Oklahoma Biomet Hip Replacement attorneys who can help file a Biomet hip replacement lawsuit against its manufacturer. By filing a defective hip replacement lawsuit, you could be entitled to financial compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, lost income and other injuries.
Biomet Magnum Hip Replacement System Approved By A Shortcut Process
The Biomet M2A Magnum hip replacement system was approved through an expedited 510(k) process by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, also known as the FDA. This process allows devices to be put on the market without clinical tests if it is shown by the manufacturer that the implant is substantially equivalent to a device that is already on the market. This is also the same process that other defective hip implants have been approved through, which includes the recalled DePuy ASR hip implant, the DePuy Pinnacle hip replacement, as well as the Wright Conserve hip systems. Because of the lack of safety tests prior to market placement, the Biomet Magnum could cause serious side effects such as:
- Unexplained and excessive hip pain
- Damage to soft tissues
- Hip implant loosening
- Difficulty with walking or standing
- Additional revision surgeries
Unfortunately, even though the Biomet Magnum hip implant was meant to last for several years, most hip implant failures requiring revision surgeries have occurred only a few years following surgery.
