A Tennessee woman has filed a lawsuit against Biomet claiming that her Biomet M2a Magnum hip implant device is defective and caused personal injuries, as well as the need to undergo revision surgery.
According to the lawsuit, a surgeon implanted the hip device on the left side in 2009. By the time the plaintiff underwent the surgery, Biomet, Inc. and Biomet Orthopedics, LLC had already received over 100 adverse event reports, yet they failed to disclose the information. The lawsuit alleges the plaintiff’s surgeon would have never gone through with the surgery had he known of the adverse event reports.
The Biomet M2a Magnum is a metal on metal hip implant. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has placed more scrutiny on these devices following reports of high failure rates and the release of elevated concentrations of metallic debris into the bloodstream.
