Lymphocyte proliferation responses in patients with pseudotumors following metal-on-metal hip resurfacing arthroplasty.

Abstract:

Locally destructive soft tissue pseudotumor has been reported in patients following metal-on-metal hip resurfacing arthroplasty (MoMHRA). A delayed hypersensitivity reaction type IV to nickel (Ni), chromium (Cr), or cobalt (Co) has been suggested to play a role in its aetiology. The aim of this study was to investigate the incidence and level of metal-induced systemic hypersensitivity in patients with MoMHRA, both with and without pseudotumor by measuring lymphocyte proliferation responses to...
