High incidence of pseudotumour formation after large-diameter metal-on-metal total hip replacement: A prospective cohort study

The Bone & Joint Journal, 05/25/2012

Because most revision cases were identified only after an intensive screening protocol, the authors recommend close monitoring of patients with MoM THR.
