A new study in the British Medical Journal showed that metal-on-metal hip implants, like the Orthopaedics “ASR” model, are no more effective than traditional implants, yet they carry a far greater risk of failure. ┬áThe November 29, 2011 report showed that metal-on-metal implants carried double the risk that the implant would have to be replaced in a second surgical procedure. ┬áThe study, titled “Comparative assessment of implantable hip devices with different bearing surfaces: systematic appraisal of evidence,” analyzed more than 3,000 patients and also used data from more than 830,000 surgeries.
