Wright Hip Implants
Wright Medical Conserve Plus Cup Hip Implant Lawsuit
Cellino & Barnes is presently reviewing potential lawsuits for individuals who have experienced complications with their Wright Conserve hip implant, including the Wright Conserve Plus Cup.
Like other metal-on-metal artificial hip replacements, the Wright Conserve may be linked to dangerous side effects, and the FDA has received hundreds of adverse event reports on the Wright Conserve devices.
Wright Medical Conserve Plus Cup Hip Implant Problems
The Wright Conserve Plus hip replacement is a metal-on-metal artificial hip system. This type of implant can release metal particles into the hip joint damaging the surrounding tissue. This can result in a build-up of metal debris in the soft tissue, tissue death surrounding the system, tumors and other problems.
Hundreds of complications have been reported to the FDA. In most of the reported cases, additional surgery was required.
Wright Medical Profemur Hip System Lawsuit
The Profemur Hip System is different from the Conserve model as it has a modular design, which means that the neck component can be adjusted to fit each patient’s leg length.
The problem is that the modular design causes the neck to bend too easily. This bending motion can cause deterioration and premature failure of the implant.
Symptoms individuals may experience from a faulty hip implant may include:
* Difficulty standing or walking
* Severe pain in the hip, thigh, groin or lower back
* Stiffness and difficulty performing normal activities
Medical attention should be sought if you begin to experience any of these symptoms to determine if your implant has a serious problem such as a failure.
If you or a loved one had a Wright Conserve Hip System implanted and have suffered complications, or experienced a hip replacement failure requiring revision surgery, you may be entitled to recover significant damages from the defective product manufacturer.
