    How Do Serum Cobalt and Chromium Levels Change after

    We prospectively monitored changes in serum cobalt and chromium levels after a new generation metal-on-metal hip resurfacing and the affect on renal function. Levels were measured using inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry and atomic absorption spectrometry, preoperatively then sequentially at 3, 6, 9, 12, and 24 months.

    Cobalt Chromium Poisoning Metal Hip Replacements

    Cobalt Chromium Metal Poisoning from Hip Replacements. Cobalt chromium poisoning is a risk for anyone with a metal on metal (MoM) hip replacement. It happens when there’s friction between metal surfaces. The friction releases tiny metal particles into your bloodstream that could trigger a hypersensitive immune response in your body.
