The FDA has announced that it is seeking expert scientific and clinical advice on the risks and benefits of MoM hip systems, as well as potential patient and practitioner recommendations on the use of MoM hip systems and the management of patients implanted with such devices. The agency is currently considering whether to make MoM hip systems subject to more rigorous testing and premarket review requirements. FDA will discuss these issues at an expert advisory panel meeting on June 27-28, 2012.
