What is the MSA Hip System?

The MSA Hip System is a hip replacement that was approved in the United States in March 2011 with a 510(k) application (PDF), which allows expedited approval of new devices so long as they are “substantially equivalent” to pre-existing devices.

The MSA hip replacement is designed with a short femoral stem, which connects to a modular femoral neck (MSA Neutral Femoral Neck or an MSA Ante-Retro-Version Femoral Neck). Orthopedic surgeons can connect these components to a variety of femoral heads and acetabular cups.

MSA Hip System Recall

July 3, 2014 — A Hazard Alert has been issued by the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA). Problems with the MSA Hip System were first identified last year in the country’s national registry of joint replacements:

“To December 2012, the cumulative percent revision rate for the MSA Hip System was 6.2% at one year and approximately 11% at two years, both of which were significantly higher compared to other total hip replacement prostheses used in Australia.”

Health Risks

The most common reasons for revision surgery with the MSA Hip System included loosening/lyisis and peri-prosthetic fractures (bone fractures around the implant). These adverse events occur when the bone around the implant disintegrates or weakens. Most bone fractures occur in the femur near the hip implant stem. Treatment is often challenging because patients are typically older and have thinning bones or other medical conditions.

Side Effects

  • Loosening of the hip implant
  • Loss of tissue and bone in the hip (lysis)
  • Bone fractures around the implant (peri-prosthetic fracture)
  • Dislocation of the prosthesis
  • Pain
  • Infection
  • Revision surgery
