Biomet Magnum Lawsuit


Lawyers Represent People Harmed by Biomet M2A Magnum Hip Replacement

Biomet Magnum Hip Replacement

The Biomet M2A-Magnum hip device is a metal-on-metal hip replacement system consisting of a metal cup and a modular head. Metal-on-metal hip replacements have been associated with serious adverse effects, including metallosis, necrosis (tissue death), osteolysis (bone loss), pseudotumors and metal blood poisoning.


Reports to FDA on Biomet M2A Magnum Hip Device Failures Prompt Concern

Since 2009, there has been a significant increase in adverse reports to the FDA involving the Biomet M2A Magnum hip replacement system. In 2009, the FDA received only eleven reports of adverse events associated with this device. The agency received eighty reports in 2011.

Adverse events included reports of acetabular cup loosening, metallosis, bone loss, chronic pain, popping or squeaking, metal poisoning and pseudutumors. Because adverse events are underreported to the FDA, it is likely that the number of people harmed by this device is substantially greater.


Biomet M2A Magnum Plagued by High Revision Rates

Biomet Magnum Lawsuit

The Australian National Joint Registry is the most comprehensive database for tracking safety issues in hip replacements. In fact, the United States does not even maintain a similar registry to assess medical devices. In 2011, the Australian National Joint Registry reported that patients receiving the Biomet M2A-Magnum with Biomet M2a cobalt chromium metal head had a yearly cumulative revision rate of 7.2%. This number represents a significant increase over traditional metal-on-polyethylene hip replacement devices.

To be fair, the problems associated with metal-on-metal hip replacements are not isolated to the Biomet M2A Magnum. Dr. Thomas Schmalzried, one of the designers of the DePuy ASR XL hip replacement system, concluded that the risks associated with metal-on-metal hip devices outweigh the benefits.
