DePuy Orthopedics Recalls ASR XL Acetabular System and ASR Hip Resurfacing Systems

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on September 10, 2010

There’s a new concern for people with hip implants from a division of Johnson & Johnson called DePuy Orthopedics, Inc. This company has recalled their ASR™ XL Acetabular System and ASR™ Hip Resurfacing System. The cause, according to news sources, is that these devices are more likely to fail within five years of implantation.
The Associated Press reports that Johnson & Johnson have issued other recalls over the last year. This one is particularly concerning, since hip implants are not easily replaceable. Patients with the ASR™ Hip System should contact their treatment providers to undergo testing regarding the failure of this medical device. DePuy has issued instructions to medical professionals on the follow-up care, which can include surgical revision.

DePuy Orthopaedics will pay the “necessary and reasonable” treatment costs relating to the defective product. However, the recall of a bodily implant poses additional personal health risks to patients, unlike pharmaceutical recalls or other medical device recalls, because hip implant recipients are often of an advanced age.
