The Biomet M2a Magnum hip is a metal-on-metal hip system that has been used nationwide on patients needing a total hip replacement. Although it was promoted for younger, active patients, many people have reported serious problems with the hip replacement within the first few years of surgery.
Metal-on-Metal Hip Implants
The Biomet M2a Magnum is a metal-on-metal system composed of a metal ball and a metal socket or cup. The components rub against each other, causing fretting and corrosion of the metal. The metal may increase metallic levels in the blood, but could also include more serious complications, including revision surgery to replace the hip implants.
In response to mounting concerns over metal-on-metal hip implants, the FDA assembled an advisory panel in June 2012 to discuss the dangers of these hip replacements.
Thousands of patients have reported experiencing severe pain, swelling, and physical difficulty caused by the Biomet M2a Magnum metal hip implants. Complications of the M2a Magnum hip can include:
- Fretting and corrosion
- Loosening of the hip implant
- Chronic dislocations
- Bone deterioration
