Symptoms of Hip Replacement Failure

There are several different types of hip implant devices on the market, and symptoms of a defective hip vary from patient to patient.

However the guidelines below could indicate a serious issue that may require a physician’s attention. The most common symptoms of a defective hip implant include:

Iliopsoas Bursitis. Metal ions released from the implant can cause inflammation in the hip flexor muscles called the iliopsoas.

Pain. Weight-bearing inequality may cause pain in either the healthy or replaced hip.

Fatigue. Patients may become more tired than normal as the body tries to compensate for the defective hip implant.

Walking difficulty. Dislocation, bone fracture, infection or a bad device could be the source of walking difficulty or a limp.

Lack of flexibility. Muscle loss due to metal poisoning may decrease flexibility.

Noise. Popping or squeaking may be the sign that the hip implant is not functioning as intended.

Swelling. When the components of a metal hip implant grind together, they can shed metal debris into the surrounding tissue and cause swelling.

These hip replacement complications can be dangerous to your health. Some of these hip replacement failure symptoms may lead to substantial tissue loss that can never be restored. Contact a physician today if you’ve experienced any of these symptoms.
