On August 26, 2010 DePuy Orthopaedics, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, announced a world-wide recall of about 93,000 replacement systems, due to a higher than expected fail rate on two products: ASR XL Acetabular Hip System
DePuy ASR Hip Resurfacing SystemThe ASR XL Acetabular Hip System and the DePuy ASR Hip Resurfacing Systems affected by the DePuy hip replacement recall first became available in July 2003.Unfortunately, if you are a patient who received the ASR hip replacement you have may have been exposed to additional health risks, premature failure of the device and additional unnecessary costs and pain.Data has shown that within five years, about 1 in 8 recipients of the DePuy ASR components have needed corrective surgery. This is a much higher fail rate than other hip replacement devices and has led to this DePuy hip replacement recall.
Many patients who required revision survey in the first five years had symptoms that included:
- problems walking
Overtime the filings from the ASR system can create potential wear and trigger pain or cause damage to surrounding tissues and muscles.
