Biomet Metal Poisoning Injuries
The metal ball and cup components in the Biomet M2a hip implant can grind against each other as a person walks or moves.
When this happens, highly toxic and dangerous cobalt and chromium particles wear off of the device and end up in the bloodstream and surrounding tissue.
This metal can damage nearby bone or tissue and lead to a condition often referred to as an adverse local tissue reaction or adverse reaction to metal debris.
To the victim, it’s most often known as unbearable pain.
Biomet M2a Magnum Tissue Damage can Cause:
- Implant loosening
- Device failure
- Need for revision surgery
Corrosion can also occur at the connection between the metal ball and taper of the stem, according to an article by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. These side effects can be physically painful and even disabling, not to mention emotionally taxing.
