Can blood metal ion levels be used to identify patients with bilateral Birmingham Hip Resurfacings who are at risk of adverse reactions to metal debris?

Abstract:

AIMS: We investigated whether blood metal ion levels could effectively identify patients with bilateral Birmingham Hip Resurfacing (BHR) implants who have adverse reactions to metal debris (ARMD). PATIENTS AND METHODS: Metal ion levels in whole blood were measured in 185 patients with bilateral BHRs.
