In late 2010, a recall was issued for the DePuy ASR Hip Replacement. Initially DePuy Orthopaedics, the company that manufactures the hip replacement system, stated that the device’s recall was due to slow sales, rather than safety problems. However, it has since become known that the recall was due to the overwhelming number of complications resulting from the DePuy ASR Hip Replacement. The hip replacement has been linked to an alarmingly high failure rate.
The ways in which the DePuy ASR Hip Replacement has failed/can fail:
- Components in the implant may loosen
- Above average level of chromium/cobalt in the blood caused by wear of the implant
- Necrosis or soft tissue damage caused by exposure to metal particles from wear of the implant
The symptoms resulting from failure of the hip replacement include:
- Fluid collections and cystic masses around the joint
- Severe pain in implant
- Loosening and lysis/osteolysis
- Problems involving walking, pain, swelling or discomfort in the hip area
- Fracture (bone around the implant breaking)
Data collected shortly before the recall determined that nearly 15% of patients receiving a DePuy Hip Replacement required surgical revision within 5 years of receiving the replacement.
If you have any of the above symptoms and believe that you suffered these because of the DePuy ASR Hip Replacement, you may have a valid lawsuit against the manufacturer.
