Have you received the Biomet M2 or M2A Magnum hip replacement system? You could be eligible to file a Biomet hip system lawsuit. The Biomet M2A Magnum is similar to other metal hip implants, which have also come under scrutiny because of their high failure rates along with their risks of dangerous side effects. This hip replacement system consists of a metal femoral head and a pelvic cup, which is made of chromium and cobalt. The friction from the metal parts can release metal debris into the bloodstream and surrounding tissue and cause hip replacement complications. If you have experienced such serious side effects, you should contact Texas Biomet Hip Replacement attorneys who can help you file a Biomet hip replacement lawsuit against the manufacturer. By filing a Biomet hip lawsuit, you could be entitled to receive financial compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost income, among other injuries.
Biomet Magnum Hip Systems Approved Through Expedited Process
The Biomet M2A Magnum hip implant system was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2004 through an expedited 510(k) process, which has been widely criticized. This process allows devices to be put on the market without testing clinically if the manufacturer can show that the device is substantially similar to a device that is already on the market. This is also the same process that other hip replacements that have been found to be defective have been approved through, to include the recalled DePuy ASR hip implant, the DePuy Pinnacle hip implant, as well as the Wright Conserve hip system. Because of the lack of safety testing before market, the Biomet Magnum can cause severe side effects such as damage to soft tissues and inflammation, excessive and unexplained hip pain, difficulty with walking or standing, implant loosening, and additional revision surgeries. Even though the Biomet Magnum hip implant system was designed with the intent to last for many years, most hip implant failures have occurred only a few years following surgery.
