Joint replacement infection is an assumed risk of joint replacement surgery. In fact, the chances of contracting an infection from a joint replacement procedure is approximately 1 in 100. However, the use of the Bair Hugger warming blankets during these procedures can result in an increased risk of contracting an infection. When bacteria infects a joint replacement area that contains metal and plastic components, it is harder for the body’s immune system to attack the infection due to the presence of the foreign materials. Therefore, despite the existence of antibiotics, patients with these types of infections from joint replacement procedures often require additional surgeries to combat the infection. Lawsuits against 3M for infections seek compensation for medical expenses, among other factors, for the cost of additional surgeries required to fight the infection.
