Metal-on-metal - Tradução em português

Metal scare over hip replacement joints

Nearly 50,000 people with all-metal hip replacements are to be called in for annual blood checks because of fears that metal particles shearing off the joint could cause them harm(…)
But critics argue that the regulators have been slow to act against other metal-on-metal implants which shed metal particles into surrounding tissue. There have been a small number of cases where, it is claimed, toxic chromium and cobalt ions have leaked into the lymph nodes, liver and kidneys before leaving the body as urine.
Concerns about some of the metal-on-metal hip implants were first voiced in 2008 by surgeons who saw patients with swellings in the hip area, said the MHRA. From 2010 it advised that all patients with metal-on-metal implants should have annual tests to establish the level of metal ions in their blood.
