DePuy Recalls Hip Replacement Products Due to Early Failure

By Posted In Defective Medical Devices  |  October 26, 2012


DePuy Orthopaedics, a division of Johnson & Johnson, recalled two of its hip replacement products in August 2010. The recall is based on a high failure rate, which requires patients to undergo painful and debilitating revision surgery.

The recalled products include the ASR™ XL Acetabular System and the ASR™ Hip Resurfacing System. Both products are sold worldwide; the latter was never approved for use in the U.S.

The recall is based on data that revealed one in every eight patients required revision surgery within five years of being implanted with a DePuy hip implant system. Some 93,000 of these hip replacement products have been implanted worldwide.

Failed DePuy hips system

Patients with a faulty hip system may experience symptoms such as swelling, pain and difficulty walking. If you were implanted with an artificial hip system after July 2003, you should consult your doctor to find out if you were implanted with a recalled device.

If you are experiencing pain and believe that you may have been implanted with a faulty DePuy hip implant, see your doctor for immediate help.
