Wright Profemur Hip Device Litigation
Approximately 500,000 hip replacement surgeries occur every year in order to increase mobility and decrease pain in patients. However, several types of hip devices can actually cause harm. For instance, hip devices with components designed with metal-on-metal interfaces can result in metal wear, the release of metal into the body, and the degradation of the artificial hip leading to fracture. These dangerous complications can result in revision surgeries and long-term side effects.
Wright Profemur Hip devices have been used in hip replacement surgeries since the early 2000s. Unfortunately, the hips have been linked to complications such as femoral neck fracture, corrosion and fretting, pain, instability, and revision surgeries.
In August 2020, the panel of federal judges on the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) consolidated the Wright Profemur hip lawsuits into a multidistrict litigation (MDL) in the Eastern District of Arkansas under Judge Baker.
