More than a year after DePuy Orthopaedics recalled two popular hip implants, the large number of patients affected and severity of injuries caused by metal-on-metal hip implants is starting to emerge.

The DePuy hip implant recall has broadened concern over all metal-on-metal hip implants. All-metal hip replacements are now on the track to become the largest and most expensive medical implant defect since 2007, when Medtronic recalled a defective heart device component associated with 7,700 complaints. An estimated 500,000 patients have received all-metal hip replacements.
