In 1996, Biomet introduced its line of M2a metal-on-metal hip replacement systems. The Biomet M2a-Magnum is the most popular device among this line and is the second most widely used hip system after the DePuy ASR device. On the company’s website, Biomet advertises that its M2a-Magnum large diameter head metal-on-metal device resists wear while providing greater stability. However, medical studies have shown that large diameter heads can cause greater concentrations of metal ions in the bloodstream and metal-on-metal devices fall at high rates.
