4.2. Metallosis and its effect on accelerating macrophage response can damage the shell or femoral neck. Pre-revision radiograph showing acetabular malposition and the loosened femoral component. Laboratory values consisted of serum Co: 169 ppb and Cr: 31 ppb, which is above the acceptable ranges of < 7 ppb following this procedure. Due to a lack of comprehensive research, the United States FDA (Food and Drug Administration) has not yet provided guidance on safe levels of metal ions in the bloodstream. Pros—metal-on-polyethylene has low wear rates, costs less, and provides absence of oxidation. The recent study on the long-term effects of CD instrumentation must be viewed as a warning. It is likely that the recipients of a metal-on-metal hip implant have heard about the possible consequences from the metal shavings which can be released into the body when the metal cup and ball rub against one another during normal activities. Evidence for a neurotoxic activity of cobalt upon occupational exposure is very limited: 12 patients with HMLD (cobalt exposure not documented) had lower performances for attention and verbal memory when compared with 26 healthy unexposed subjects (Jordan et al., 1990). Patients experiencing adverse events related to metal hip implants such as hip dislocation, infection, device fracture, loosening or any other issues with the implant should seek medical help from an orthopedic surgeon who can further evaluate the problem. Metal-on-metal replacements have a higher cost, are heavier, and are stiffer. GT = greater tuberosity. Bone loss is also called “osteolysis” or “aseptic osteolysis.” It is a common yet serious side-effect of Metal on Metal (MoM) hip replacements. • Metallosis Overview We have been taught that 45° of inclination and 15–20° anteversion is right for cups, but this is NOT correct for all low profile design big ball cups (Fig. 2.13). Over time, this can cause significant instability in the replacement joint leading to a spontaneous dislocation, bone fracture or bone loss. Wear patch progression will inevitably grow the size of the patch of mating surfaces and hence will, in due course, cause this problem if the cup is too open. The surgeon will likely recommend hip revision surgery if necessary, where the original implant is removed and replaced by a different type of device, which is usually non-metal in design.

M.A. Author information: (1)Clinical Fellow, University Hospitals, Southampton - UK. 38.6. Fig. To conclude, this case is evidence that Cr and Co toxicities can lead to cardiomyopathy. Systemic effects of cobalt toxicity after revision hip replacement can manifest in intermediate to long term follow-up. The significance of such findings is unknown. DePuy Orthopedics, Inc. ASR Hip Implants Linked to Metallosis Cobalt and Chromium Blood Toxicity in Hip Replacement Patients DePuy ASR Hip Implants To Blame For Metal Poisoning, Metallosis and Other Long Term Health Effects. However, from then on, the patient will likely experience a heightened sensitivity to low levels of metals for the remainder of their life. A follow-up determination 3 months after the first test is recommended in patients with blood Co or Cr > 7 μg/L. There was no metallosis of the tissues or joint fluid but an enlarged bursa was removed from the joint. Persons suffering from metallosis can experience any of the following symptoms: This site is protected by reCAPTCHA and the Google Privacy Policy and Terms of Service apply. Cons—metal-on-polyethylene has a tendency to scuff the surface, wearing it away. Bone loss is the destruction of bone around an implant. 4.5. (b) The explanted components and the enlarged, metal-stained bursa. The instrument used in these measurements was a Mitutoyo (BMT 504, Mitotoyo, Aurora, IL), which has a resolution of approximately 3 microns, and uses Qualstar software for the construction of the wear maps. P. Campbell, in The Hip Resurfacing Handbook, 2013. Also known as blood metal poisoning, metallosis occurs when the all metal ball and socket joint components interact and shed metal ions into the bloodstream. 2.11. • When Hip Implants Are Recalled 2.15. Cups placed with their face at 45° have a head centre to edge of cup angle that is more than 45° by about 10° due to the open internal surface. As a result, the cup face needs to be closed to 35° in order to be where the edge of the cup would be for a Charnley hip at 45°. Metal particles in the body are often slough off metal hip implants and are released into the individual bloodstream and soft tissue typically at the site surrounding the implant. This case at revision had very high wear involving the cup edge that came into play some time after implantation. • What to Do Next The doctor will take note of specific symptoms that could include hip noise, groin/hip pain, degrading previous symptoms, challenges with walking and others. The fluid is often cloudy, rust, gray or yellow in color. By continuing you agree to the use of cookies. The affected area soon became a cataract. FH = femoral head. A metallic foreign body lodged within the lens of a 30-year-old man (eye photographed at initial injury). Despite the removal of the metallic foreign body shown in Fig. It was stated that the consequences of the findings of ‘metallosis’ are not yet clear . 22.13. There are also possible links to cancer because cobalt and chromium have been found to cause cancer in animals, but more research must be done. Metal surfaces have been found to last over two decades. Are there any long term effects of metal from metal implants such as cancer or immune system disorders or problems like pain in other areas of the body, rashes, etc., or any patients that have ended up with strange illnesses caused by metal implants? This may have caused early membrane formation and instability, bone resorption and eventual collapse. Sometimes, the Food and Drug Administration or the hip manufacturer will recall the metal on metal hip replacement device. If metal gets into the bloodstream and circulates throughout the body, metallosis can cause: Vision and hearing problems; Cognitive impairment; Nerve damage; Heart failure; Thyroid problems; Skin rashes; Infection Cacko PT, MPT, OCS, J.D. According to a recent study conducted by Stephen Tower, M.D., and published in The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, at least two DePuy hip implant recipients suffer from metallosis and cobalt poisoning (cobaltism). The wear measurements indicated that wear was within the expected range for these components at 70 months (the combined socket and femoral linear wear depth was 30 microns). The coordinate measuring machine probe contacting the surface replacement. Effusions, synovial or capsular thickening and minor distension of the psoas bursa are not an uncommon finding on ultrasound, and in isolation are usually not associated with any symptoms (Figs 22.14–22.16). He was diagnosed with idiopathic cardiomyopathy with a left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) of 20%. Cacko PT, MPT, OCS, J.D. The British Hip Society recommends regular follow-up of patients with metal-on-metal hip replacements for at least 5 years and probably for the life of the prosthesis.2 Clinical manifestations of cobalt toxicity may occur many years after implantation of the prosthesis and appear to stay elevated over extended periods of time.13 Long-term exposure to cobalt may also be associated with cancer.14 … While this is alarming enough, chromium comes with its own set of adverse health effects. There was abundant new reactive bone below this membrane and both resorption and bone formation were active (Fig. 38.6). Despite having a negative biopsy, cobaltemia was the suspected etiology of his cardiac dysfunction. The cup was found to be in 50° of anteversion with 60° of abduction (Fig. 40.1). Metallosis is defined as aseptic fibrosis, local necrosis, or loosening of a prosthetic device secondary to metal corrosion and release of metallic wear debris in periprosthetic soft and bony tissues 1).Metallosis occurs due to metallic erosion and release of metallic debris ions, which induce massive local cytokines liberation from inflammatory cells 2). Vasukutty NL(1), Minhas TH(2). Neurotoxic effects have been reported in patients with orthopedic prostheses releasing cobalt and chromium locally (metallosis) and systemically (for reviews, see Catalani et al., 2012; Keegan et al., 2007). Only recently, however, it has the issue of metal-bone breakdown secondary to metal corrosion in situ come to light, raising concerns of possible long-term complications from the resulting metallosis and inflammation of spinal tissues. The long-term effects of exposure to cobalt and chromium, two metals used to fabricate Stryker hip products, is presently unknown. Metallosis can often lead to bone and tissue death, implant failure and ongoing severe pain. (b) Early post-operative radiograph of the resurfaced femoral head. A metallic foreign body lodged in the inferior lens and inciting cataractous changes. There is minor distension of the psoas bursa (arrows). 2.17. Severe metallosis often necessitates painful revision surgery where a surgeon exchanges the metal-on-metal hip implant causing the blood poisoning and tissue damage with another implant made of ceramic or other nonmetal material. • Treating Metallosis Although the exact mechanism of Co and Cr cardiotoxicity is unknown, the author states that it is the accumulation of Co in cardiac myocytes that leads to dilated cardiomyopathy. However, a cystic reactive mass arising from the joint space will often communicate with the bursa (Fig. 22.9). Corrosion was seen on many of the rod junctions (66.2%) after long-term implantation, but there was no difference between the junction at the hook and those at the crosslink connector. As a result, the ring hip did not have a cup edge wear problem. • Diagnosing Metallosis There was deep penetration of cement, up to 1 cm, from the dome to the edge of the component. That said, elevated levels of cobalt ions can be detected in the bloodstream, urine, hair or joint fluid of patients experiencing no symptoms at all. During surgery, her MoM joint was found to be mispositioned leading to metallosis, osteolysis, and granuloma. The cause of the, A Worldwide Yearly Survey of New Data in Adverse Drug Reactions, Case studies of acetabular malposition and high wear in hip resurfacing, ). This instrument used a computer- controlled probe to map the surface of the component with hundreds of points (Fig. 36.7). 38.5. 2.13. cup face at 45° (conventional Charnley type) is NOT correct for a resurfacing cup. The cause of the metallosis is the cup angle. Stryker recalled its Rejuvenate and ABG II systems over hip replacement side effects like metal poisoning and loosening of the joint. Femoral neck thinning can be readily diagnosed on ultrasound using the anterior approach (Fig. 22.3). Farida Louise Assem, Agneta Oskarsson, in Handbook on the Toxicology of Metals (Fourth Edition), 2015. Note active bone resorption (thin arrows) and new bone formation (thick arrows). Next, he underwent revision of his right hip with similar findings. Cons—ceramic-on-ceramic is brittle, and there is risk of fracture to the femoral head and acetabular component. The ring hip cup angle in this case was dictated by the illio-pubic bone; this was close to the load axis such that the wear patch could not come near the cup edge antero-laterally and resulted in cup face angles being abducted typically around 20° (Fig. (b) Radiograph confirming heterotopic bone formation. Before reports of metallosis with metal-on-metal hips, the National Institutes of Health recognized osteolysis as the most significant long-term adverse effect of total hip replacement. Chipping can also occur with impingement to the hip. Periarticular heterotopic bone formation seen as a highly echogenic area obscuring the view of the hip (arrows). Joel S. Schuman MD FACS, ... Robert J. Noecker MD MBA, in Lens and Glaucoma, 2008, Minimal lens opacity and inflammation if the foreign body is completely embedded or encapsulated and if there is spontaneous capsule closure, direct siderosis (iron foreign body into lens), siderosis bulbi (ionized iron in aqueous or vitreous), Iron intraocular foreign bodies have more toxicity than alloy intraocular foreign bodies because they release more ions, which accumulate in lens epithelium, Occult, small intraocular metallic foreign bodies are often the cause of more chronic manifestations of metallosis, Mid-dilated, non-reactive pupil (pupillary sphincter muscle toxicity), Sectoral cataract surrounding foreign body, Peripheral pigmentary retinal degeneration and sclerosed arterioles, CT scan or other imaging modality to evaluate extent of injury and to rule out additional intraocular foreign bodies, If metallic foreign body is suspected, a plain film x-ray can be used, MRI should be avoided if metallic foreign body is suspected, Electroretinogram (ERG) if posterior fundus findings (a decreased B-wave amplitude is a relatively sensitive finding in siderosis), Serial ERGs are useful if surgical intervention is considered, Lens iron pigmentation following an intraocular hemorrhage, Congenital anterior polar cataract (pyramidal or with persistent pupillary membrane), Lensectomy if vision compromised, metallosis, or endophthalmitis (7–30%), Intravitreal antibiotics many be necessary if early signs of endophthalmitis, Contaminated foreign bodies have a poor prognosis secondary to massive inflammatory response, Deferring removal of larger intraocular foreign bodies for more than 24 h increases the risk of developing endophthalmitis from 3.5 to 13.4%. Even so, normal cobalt measurements in (serum) joint fluid are thought to be less than two micrograms per liter. Pseudo-tumors or noncancerous pockets of built-up fluid can occur on occasion that forms around the damaged tissue. 4.3. The coefficient of friction is approximately two to three times greater than that for polyethylene. Some patients have also reported heart failure, loss of vision, loss of hearing, and organ damage. Cup face abduction can appear to be 45° but this is not the true articulating abduction. However, the action by the FDA or manufacturer does not necessarily mean that the doctor will need to remove the device and replace it with another. There is no evidence that additional regular US follow-up is beneficial, although demonstrating static disease is reassuring. Chelation Therapy – The doctor can recommend the chelating agents to treat the disease by administering it orally, intramuscularly or intravenously. 40.1.
