Between 2000 and 2011, there were nearly 17,000 reports of adverse events caused by metal-on-metal hip implants such as Biomet Orthopedics’ M2a Magnum hip implant and DePuy Orthopedics’ ASR hip implant systems.
While DePuy received the majority of the bad publicity and recalled its hip resurfacing system and acetabular system in 2010, other metal-on-metal manufacturers saw similar issues.
