What is the Wright Dynasty Hip Implant?
Wright Medical’s Dynasty Biofoam Acetabular Cup System is a hip replacement component that features a trabecular structure which is designed to mimic bone and contribute to bone in-growth and biological fixation. The device was approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in March 2009.
What’s the Problem?
FDA has cautioned that metal-on-metal hip replacement devices like the Wright Dynasty implant can cause metallosis, swelling, life-threatening allergic reactions and soft tissue growth. Patients with these complications are usually advised to undergo revision surgery, a painful and time-consuming process in which the implant is removed and replaced with a new one.

What are Complaints Alleging?
Most cases involving medical devices allege that a product was sold with design, manufacturing, and/or marketing defects, which typically refers to a company’s failure to warn of a certain potential complication. In the case of the Dynasty shell, our attorneys suspect that patients may be able to take legal action in light of claims that Wright Medical Technology failed to adequately warn doctors and patients about the risk of metallosis and early hip replacement failure.
What Damages Could I be Compensated for?
By filing a lawsuit against the maker of Wright Medical Technology, you may be entitled to collect compensation for all current and future medical expenses related to the treatment of your injury, as well as for damages for pain and suffering. Additionally, filing a lawsuit can help hold the manufacturer accountable for releasing an allegedly defective medical device into the marketplace, and to discourage other companies from engaging in similar conduct.
