potential risks associated with fretting and corrosion at the modular neck junction
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) September 18, 2012
The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than Dale Parcell and people who suffer from Hip Replacements. And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.
On July 6th, 2012 the US FDA informed about Stryker Orthopedics recall of its Rejuvenate and ABG II modular-neck stems mentioning potential risks associated with fretting and corrosion at the modular neck junction. On August 7th, 2012 the Wall Street Journal reported that another hip implant manufacturer, Wright Medical received US Attorney’s subpoena seeking documents on its Profemur line of hip replacement implants.
On June 21st, 2012 Bloomberg published that FDA reported approximately 16,800 adverse events related to metal-on-metal hip implants (including Wright Profemur Hip Replacement) in the US from 2000-2011.
According to court documents, on February 22nd, 2012 a Phoenix man, Dale Parcell, filed a lawsuit against Wright Medical (case no. 2:2012cv00368) in Maricopa county, Phoenix, Arizona District Court after needing emergency surgery following a sudden catastrophic fracture of the titanium modular neck of the Wright ProFemur Total Hip System.
AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, can provide helpful advice and simple solutions including how to get in contact with legal counsel so that, in case of severe adverse events from Wright Profemur Hip Replacement, someone can easily and inexpensively deal with it. As Mr. Burke, director of Media Relations for AttorneyOne.com, added, “What all this information really illustrates is that threat from Wright Profemur Hip Replacement remains. For that reason, our focus should squarely fall on getting the word out and assisting people in finding the right legal assistance.”
In 2004, Wright Medical issued a recall on its metal acetabular hip cups used in the Conserve hip systems because of a manufacturer defect that resulted in a seam or ridge in the inner acetabular cup surface leading to the component’s failure.
