New Study Suggests Hip Replacements Could Increase Cancer Risk: AttorneyOne.com Provides Advice and Solutions for the Ongoing Threat of Adverse Effects from Wright Profemur Hip Replacement

Share Article

On Jan. 28th and Feb. 4th 2012, the Telegraph published early findings from the study of researchers at the University of Bristol on the effects of "metal-on-metal" hip replacement devices that suggest the implants could increase the risk of cancer and genetic damage. Last month the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) was advised that certain types of metal-on-metal implant could cause "systemic toxicity" in the body. Investigations in the U.S. have found that the vast majority of metal-on-metal hip implants retrieved from patients when they were replaced had shown signs of degrading. According to court documents, on Oct. 27th, 2011 Arizona resident Virginia M. Welch filed a lawsuit (No. 2:11-002113), in the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona, claiming that the cup in her Wright Profemur implant became loose just three years after receiving it. Now, AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, can provide helpful, proven advice and simple solutions including how to get in contact with legal counsel so anyone can easily and inexpensively deal with cases of Wright Profemur Hip Replacement side effects. http://www.attorneyone.com/wright-profemur-hip-replacement/

The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than Virginia M. Welch. And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.

According to the lawsuit filed on Oct. 27th, 2011 No. 2:11-002113 by Virginia M. Welch, she received a Wright Profemur implant in her right hip in February 2006, but had to have it removed only three years later, in November 2009, after she began suffering severe hip pain. The radiograph showed that the cup had loosened and appeared to be rotated clockwise about 90 degrees from where it should have been.

Early findings from the study of the University of Bristol, on the effects of "metal-on-metal" devices, published on Jan. 28th and Feb. 4th 2012 on the Telegraph, suggest these implants could increase the risk of cancer and genetic damage. The study is understood to have detected changes to cells in the bladders of more than one in five patients monitored.

Data in the 2009 annual report of the Australian registry (PDF) revealed that the Wright Profemur Z hip implant was identified as having a higher than expected revision rate, with 11.2% of the patients who have had this implant to require additional surgery within three years of the initial surgery.
