Pryers are acting for a number of patients who have suffered the early failure of the ACCIS hip resurfacing.

What is ACCIS hip resurfacing?

This is a novel device, used only in very small numbers in the UK, in two hospitals in Wales. It is understood that it is only used by surgeons who are also design consultants for the manufacturer.

The device is a cobalt-chromium resurfacing, essentially similar to a Birmingham hip or a DePuy ASR.  However, it has a very thin coating of a gold-coloured material (titanium-niobium-nitride) which is thought to prevent wear of the components and the shedding of metal debris.

What is the issue with ACCIS hip resurfacing?

In some cases, it seems that this coating has failed and premature wear of the components has occurred, with patients developing very high levels of cobalt and chromium in their blood and having to undergo revision surgery.

Pryers are helping patients who have suffered

Pryers are currently gathering evidence with a view to bringing product liability claims for compensation against the manufacturers and distributor, Implantcast Gmbh of Germany.

If you have experienced the premature failure of an ACCIS hip and would like legal advice as to your options, please call Pryers on 1904556600 or email us at hips@pryers.co.uk.
