There has been a lot of buzz about the DePuy Hip Replacement Implant Recalls, but few visual aids are available to help people understand the mechanism behind the implant failure.
In order to provide attorneys and physicians with the tools needed to help explain this effectively to the people with these implants and their families, MediVisuals has created the Metal-on-Metal Hip Replacement Recall Animation Series. The first of this series focuses on 1. the metal on metal wear and 2. how placement of the acetabular component at too steep an angle significantly increases the pounds/mm2 pressure on the devices resulting in increasing friction and metal discharge into the joint space.
MediVisuals has developed animations to both help collect cases as well as to use in settlement or trial of these types of mass torts. To arrange use of these animations for either purpose – or to commission development of other animations or images, please contact Robert L. Shepherd at firstname.lastname@example.org
