A Different Perspective on Metal-on-Metal Implants for THA

    French surgeon Henri Migaud, MD, told attendees at the recent World Arthroplasty Congress that abandoning all metal-on-metal implants for total hip arthroplasty without considering which ones could be safely used is a mistake. The right implant with the right patient can still produce a good outcome.

    We asked Dr. Migaud to explain his rationale for continuing to use metal-on-metal implants. His responses provide interesting food for thought – will this be a case of what goes around, comes around?
