Defects in devices manufactured by DePuy have resulted in a high number of patients with the devices needing revisionary surgery for a second hip replacement. Lawyers already are preparing DePuy hip replacement lawsuits related to two products:

  • DePuy ASR Hip Resurfacing System (launched in 2003)
  • DePuy ASR XL Acetabular System (launched in 2004)

Sales of DePuy hip device suspended

DePuy, a division of Johnson & Johnson, has suspended product sales and has informed the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of the recall. The number of patients needing a second, corrective surgery is unusually high (12 percent of patients who received the ASR Hip Resurfacing System and about 13 percent who received the ASR XL Acetabular System).

No more than 5 percent of hip implant patients should need a replacement within five years, according to DePuy.

Your surgeon can examine your hip implant for signs of trouble. The device may be loose or there may be a bone fracture around the implant or dislocation of the implant’s ball and socket. Contact your doctor, who can determine how the implant is performing.

The following are a few signs that the DePuy ASR System may be defective: Pain in the hip area

  • Difficulty walking
  • Swelling in the hip area

If you are affected by the DePuy hip replacement recall, DuPuy says the company is willing to offer hip replacement settlements to cover patients’ costs. Keep in mind, however, that you may not get the full compensation you deserve if you agree to a settlement. A products liability attorney can help you determine the best course of action.
