In the final installment of our 12-part series on cobalt and chromium blood levels, metal toxicology expert Dr. Michael McCabe discusses whether the metal wear debris generated by large diaphragm metal-on-metal hip implants, such as the recently recalled DePuy ASR hip device, may cause cancer. Metal wear debris is known to cause soft tissue damage, tissue necrosis, pseudo-tumors, cobaltism, metallosis, and other potential long term health problems. This is part 12 in our 12-part series.
