High incidence of pseudotumour formation after large-diameter metal-on-metal total hip replacement: A prospective cohort study
The Bone & Joint Journal, 05/25/2012Bosker BH et al.
This study shows a substantially higher incidence of pseudotumour formation and subsequent revisions in patients with metal–on–metal (MoM) total hip replacement (THR) than previously reported. Because most revision cases were identified only after an intensive screening protocol, the authors recommend close monitoring of patients with MoM THR.
