The above MediVisuals' Metal-on-Metal Hip Replacement Recall animation sequences have been revised from the version that premiered at the DePuy MDL Conference in West Palm Beach on January 19, 2011. This revised version has been extended and includes labeling to allow it to be viewed and comprehended without narration or oration by a presenter. Other animation sequences and illustrations are in the process of development. Some can be viewed at the following link: www.medivisuals.com/depuy.aspx. More visuals are in the process of development, while still others are awaiting results of further studies and research.

If you have any questions or would like to arrange for use of the animations, please contact Bob Shepherd via email at bshepherd@medivisuals.com or call 800-899-2153.
