- Release of metal ions in the bloodstream.
The DePuy Pinnacle® & Increased Metal Levels in the Bloodstream
With the DePuy Pinnacle® and other metal-on-metal hip replacement systems, metal ions from the implant may be released into a patient’s bloodstream, where they can cause serious adverse reactions. The FDA reports that it has been informed of cases involving problems with the nervous system, thyroid gland, and heart associated with high levels of metal in the blood.
