Event Description
"literature article entitled, ¿601 metal-on-metal total hip replacements with 36 mm heads a 5 minimum year follow up: levels of armd remain low despite a comprehensive screening program¿ by amit atrey, et al, published by journal of orthopaedics (2017), vol. 14, pp. 108-114, was reviewed. The purpose of this article is a retrospective study to assess the clinical outcome, failure rate, and reason for failure of a large consecutive series of 36 mm mom corail/pinnacle total hip replacements (thrs). Implanted depuy products: pinnacle cup, metal liner, cocr femoral head, and corail stem. Results: 100 patients had elevated blood metal ions greater than 7 ppb. The mean cobalt level was 120 ppb and chromium level was 135 ppb. These patients were given additional screening with ultrasound and aspirate of the periarticular joint fluid. 12 of these patients were revised and captured in case 1-case 2. There were incidences of elevated blood metal ions in the revisions for dislocation, infection, and loosening. 6 head and liner revisions due to dislocation. 4 revisions due to infection. The components revised were unspecified. 1 patient requested revision due to elevated blood metal ions. 2 stem and head revisions due to limb asymmetry. 4 revisions due to aseptic loosening of either the cup or head. Captured in pc-000600950: pinnacle cup: implant loosening. Acetabular liner: implant dislocation. Femoral head: implant dislocation. Corail stem: implant loosening. Patient harms: surgical intervention, medical device removal, elevated blood metal ions, joint dislocation, inadequate osseointegration, limb asymmetry, infection. This article provides detailed information for 12 patients who were revised due to armd as evidences by elevated blood metal ions, histological confirmation of armd using hip aspirate, or ultrasound evidence of pseudotumor/pseudocapsule. These patients are captured in the attached guidance document labeled case 1-case 12. The parent pc-000600950 captures the revisions and results not identified by patient. " (b)(6) female implanted with a pinnacle cup, metal liner, cocr femoral head, and corail stem. Revised cup, head, and liner due to armd. Pre-revision symptoms: clunking of the operative hip. Blood metal ions: co 356 ppb cr 255 ppb. Intraoperative findings: soft tissue necrosis, iliopsoas pseudotumor, and periarticular synovial thickening consistent with foreign body reaction. There was no reported product problem with the stem or the cup.
