Hip Implant Failures are Difficult to Recover From

By Andrew J Blake Subscribe to RSS | February 18th 2012 | Views:

About 10 percent of the annual 200,000 hip implant surgeries are represented by patients that are facing hip replacement failures or defects. While these certain implants are said to last for about 15-20 years, reality has proved numerous times that this is not the case, implants failing or creating problems after a couple of months.

Even the surgery itself involves numerous risks including:

- Heart attacks;

- Blood clots;

- Bleeding;

- Infections;

- Adverse reactions to the anesthesia.

When an implant fails prematurely, the revision surgery will have to either fix the problem or change the implant completely. This surgery will be even more painful and debilitating than the first one and will keep your away from your daily activities even more.

Possible problems that can occur to the original hip implant:

- Infection around the prosthesis;

- The bone around the prosthesis breaks;

- The prosthesis comes loose;

- The prosthesis breaks or wears out.

Patients that have suffered from the effects of a hip implant failure may be entitled to receive an important sum of money to cover the revision surgery expenses, therapy expenses, any lost wages due to the long recovery period and the pain and suffering experienced. Filing a defective hip replacement lawsuit is a necessary step you need to take in order to receive compensation. It is recommended you consult with an experienced attorney specialized in this field of law before taking legal actions against the ones responsible. Compensation will allow the victim to get the best medical treatment possible without having to worry about the financial side of things. The quality of life the patient will experience will also be higher after being properly compensated. In most cases, compensation is the necessary step you need to take in order to have a chance to a normal life.
