SCENIHR concludes that all types of MoM hip arthroplasties release metals in any forms which, once in the body fluids and tissues, may lead to local and/or systemic adverse health effects. MoM implants with large diameters (resurfacing and especially large-head) show the highest incidence of local reactions.

Due to the higher health risk when compared with alternative implants, the application of MoM hip arthroplasty should carefully be considered on a case-by case basis.
