Toxic Substances & Metal-on-Metal Hip Replacements
One of the most dangerous side effects associated with metal-on-metal hip implants are the toxic substances that can leak from the device. One such substance is charged chromium ions—something that has been known to be a carcinogen since the 1970s. Unfortunately, many metal-on-metal hip replacements are made of chromium-cobalt. After the device is implanted, it can shed particles of the metal into the body, which can increase the risk of pain, inflammation, bone death, and other complications.

Some of the most common hip implants named in lawsuits include the following:
- DePuy ASR XL Acetabular System
- DePuy ASR Hip Resurfacing System
- Zimmer Holdings Durom Cup
