The advantages seen by patients receiving total hip arthroplasties and the implications of the release of both metal particles and soluble metal ions are discussed. This paper describes some of the early changes that have been observed in metal-on-metal hip arthroplasties, in terms of both changes in metal levels in blood and chromosome changes.
