Study shows Apex K2 hip implant flaw.

A study published in the Journal of Arthroplasty found the Apex K2 hip implant manufactured by OMNI — formerly OMNIlife Science, Inc. — has an above average rate of wearing down and complications. Some may fail in as little as a year after being implanted. This news may be troubling for patients who received these implants.

The study conducted by Dr. Michael Kent and colleagues at the Perth Orthopaedic Institute in Australia involved 95 patients who received Apex K2 hip stems. Researchers followed study participants for two years. The goal of the study was to evaluate the stability and clinical outcomes of the hip stems.
