The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said SGACD recalled the unimplanted inventory of a total of 9 batches of its zirconia ceramic femoral heads worldwide due to a higher-than-expected fracture rate.
Although the recall is limited to this particular SGACD component, a new study conducted by researchers at the International Epidemiology Institute in Rockville, MD has raised concerns that patients with any type of artificial hip may be somewhat more likely to develop skin, prostate, and blood cancers.
