DePuy ASR Hip Claims
On August 26, 2010, DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc., a division of Johnson and Johnson, recalled two devices used for hip replacements since 2005. The Depuy Hip Recall Lawyers at Knafo Law Offices are available to answer any questions patients may have about their rights. An estimated 93,000 devices have been recalled. The DePuy ASR hip replacements subject to the Depuy Hip recall are: 1. ASR XL Acetabular System and the 2. ASR Hip Resurfacing System. These DePuy ASR hips have been implanted since 2005 in the United States and since 2001 internationally. Depuy ASR recall patients may require surgery to remove and replace the defective hip implant. DePuy Orthopaedics estimates that approximately 10,000 replacement surgeries may be needed. The reason for the recall is due to high levels of metal ions being released from the Depuy ASR hip. The release of metal ionscan result in damaged tissue, pseudotumors, and osteolysis. This could happen shortly after the DePuy ASR hip replacement is implanted or complications may occur years later. The DePuy devices were removed from the Australian market in December 2009. On May 25, 2010 a Medical Device Alert was issued in the UK for the DePuy Hip. Depuy ASR hip replacement patients may be eligible for compensation due to the injuries they have suffered as a result of being implanted with the defective DePuy ASR hip replacement. Past and future pain, suffering, medical bills, lost earnings, and disfigurement are among the damages that the patients may be entitled to recover.
