The DePuy Hip Implant (models ASR XL Acetabular and ASR Hip Resurfacing System) is a metal-on-metal hip replacement system manufactured by DePuy Orthapedics, Inc, which is a division of Johnson and Johnson. Generally, hip replacements are made to relieve arthritis pain.
DePuy Orthapedics has instituted a recall of both defective models on August 24, 2010. The recall was initiated because of the extraordinarily high failure rate of these devices. One study demonstrated that over a period of five years, the failure rate is 13%. Unfortunately, as many as 93,000 of these defective products have been implanted in patients. These patients would have had to go through a second surgery called “revision” surgery in order to remove the dangerous parts; however, even the revision surgery does not necessarily remove all the dangerous parts of the implant from the patient’s body.
An additional negative side effect of these hip implants is that they have been known to cause pseudotumors in the bodies of patients.
In order to receive full compensation for your injuries, an experienced legal counsel is crucial.
