Other serious health problems associated with all metal hips, include adverse local tissue reactions, pseudotumor formation, and metallosis. These conditions can cause a metal-on-metal hip implant to fail in just a few years, and lead to a revision surgery to remove and replace a metal-on-metal hip. Recently, the Lancet published a study showing that all-metal hip implants fail at a rate of 6 percent in five years, compared to the 2 percent seen in plastic or ceramic devices. These findings prompted the authors to call an end to their use.
