The treatment of femoral neuropathy due to pseudotumour caused by metal-on-metal resurfacing arthroplasty.

Abstract

Concerns now exist about the long-term biological effects of exposure to orthopaedic metal alloys, particularly serum cobalt and chromium ions derived from metal-on-metal wear debris in these patients. A pseudotumour mass complicating metal-on-metal resurfacing arthroplasty has been recognized by orthopaedic oncologists and specialist hip units… (More)
